Papertake Weekly and Cute Kitty xxx


How sweet is this lil fella!!

Well he may be a girlie kitty cat but I reckon not - there is a glint of mischief in his eyes.

It was love at first sight, cos I fell for him as soon as I saw him, and thought I'd use him for my Papertake Weekly card - it's a Dawny sketch this week and the girls have once again come up trumps with their interpretation. Pop over and check them out cos they are so gorgeous.

So here's the sketch I did.

I thought I'd do a simple-ish one this week - sometimes it's nice to let the image do the talking (ha, thats rich coming from gabbalot Phillips here - chance would be a fine thing for the poor image to get a word in edgeways lol xx)

And here's what I did with it. I just heart this colour combi so much - tis one of my faves.

The fabulous image is from Wild Rose Studio and you can probably guess what's coming!! Ay, the bad boys put in an appearance. But just for a change, I paper pieced the washing. No probs re the boxers (another reason I think it's a boy cat - God I'm sharp as a tack, me!!), but with hindsight I'm not sure why I used spotty paper for the other clothes when you can hardly see the spots - doh!!!! Now what was that about being sharp lol xxxx

The black and white paper is Prima Hybrid and that beautiful red spotty ribbon is Poppicrafts. The sentiment is a stamp I've had for ages but I can't remember from whence the little sausage came - apols.

Not often I really like one of my cards, but I do quite like this.

Well what do I know re Dancing On Ice!!! Nowt, that's what!!!

I didn't see that coming with Jess. You could have smacked me in the face with a kipper quite frankly!!! It must be really hard for the ones that can actually skate (ie Jess) when they are in the skate off and ones that really can't (ie Colleen) go through. I think I'd be a bit peeved actually.

But I was sad to see the gorgeousness that is Fred go out - he is a bit of eye candy, even though he only looks about 10!!! But at least Kath's boy is still in.

Well that's me for now. It's a veritable soap fest tonight so I will more than likely be glued to Corrie and Easties, jimmie jams on, glass of vino in one hand and remote control in the other.

And don't forget, it's pancake day tomorra - so another reason why the diet will go for a burton. I'm afraid I've been the laziest wifee possible cos I bought ready made batter from Marksies, and here I am seemingly with no shame whatsoever, telling you all.

Now, what's it to be girls, sugar and lemon or maple syrup???

Do let me know wontcha and have a fab night xxxxx
