Cattitude and Lots of 2 in 1s xx

Yes, you are not seeing things. It is indeed a PB stamp which my friend Jan from Creative Pastimes has kindly asked me to look after while she is on holiday, and cos she felt sorry for me being a PB pauper (ahhh, it IS a shame xx). Well how could you refuse this little face - awww so sweet. And big thanks Jan - I really appreciate it xxx
It's a bit dark this (must be the camera lol xx) so I might try and re-load it later (soz xx)
This is for 2 challenges. Firstly, CCT challenge #27 - Cats & Dogs. I only realised after I had finished this that actually I had already done a cat card this week which I guess would have qualified. But I had so much fun doing this one, so what the heck!!! It's also my card for Spoonful of Sugar, challenge #17 - Christmas is Coming. I sort of based it on the Sarak Kay sketch which I used last week and which is gorgeous. The papers are Funky Hands Funky Little Christmas - ab fab and bargainous @ £3.49 - and the ribbon (which hasn't shown up very well cos there are green spots on it), is another ab fab, Poppicrafts. Now despite a lady on the last workshop I did saying that she didn't think red and acid green went together, I really like that combi. Tell me peeps, whaddya think? Go on, be honest....
This next one is a 2 in 1 but not the usual way round ie 1 card = 2 challenges.
This is 1 challenge = 2 cards. Why, I hear you ask?
Or maybe I didn't hear you ask, but I'll tell you anyway xx.
It's cos I heart cats and I heart CCT lol xxx
Oh and I am just loving these box type easy peasy pop up cards at the mo
This fella sure has major cattitide and I love this image. He is another 'on loan' PB boy from Jan as is that oh so true sentiment - LOVE it xx That gorgeous brown spotty paper is from Dinky Dots and the ribbon is a scrappy bit from the very depths of my ribbon hoard.

As per the last card, this is also another 2 cards for 1 challenge thingy, cos I got this Whiff of Joy stamp lastweek and I just couldn't wait to have a go, mainly cos I am really in Pro Marker heaven at the mo. I found the red spotty paper in my 12 x 12 paper box, even though it is actually A4 (bad filing on my part) and the grey harlequin paper is PP. The ribbons and jewel brads are Poppicrafts and the 'stamped-onto- paper-and-just-stuck-on-to-hide-the-appalling- bloody-job-I-made-of-trying-to-stamp-directly-onto-the-card' sentiment is Woodware.

I just noticed that there is a bit of a misty thing going on in the left hand bottom corner. Maybe it is a misty thing or maybe it is grease from the chocolate biscuit I was scoffing whilst taking the pics - ohh major slap, you little fattie!! Little pickers wear bigger knickers!!!

Here's a close up of that beautiful image.

Now you have a nice day, wontcha y'all xxxxx

Wow Honey you have been busy those chocolate biscuits must have given you extra crafting powers!! Love all these cards, and yes take no notice of the lady with bad eyesight Red and that Green go perfectly well together. I love all the cards and that cat in a hat is so cute. But I have got to get that cat with the attitude problem, make a great card for all my boys, attitude isn't the word. Anyway love your colouring as always wish I could get those markers to look as good as yours.
Enjoy the rest of the day
