There's A Bit Of A Cute-Fest ……


Over at Papertake Weekly.

Plus a bit of a treat for you all in the shape of a bit of discount on your crafty shopping, thanks to our sponsor this week, One Stop Card Crafts

And of course there’s the fab DT’s cardage to feast your eyes on so nip over and check it all out if you get a sec.

So our challenge is all about cute this week and I think this lil kitty cat is as sweet as sweet can be. He’s Thomas and he is one of the new Lili Of The Valley images which are now available and here’s where you can find him peeps.

edit1Of course, I used my Copics cos they are just fabulous and I love them more each time I use them. I cannot begin to tell you how sad Richard thinks I am for drooling over ‘some felt pens’ but if you want to get yourself some of these babies, just hop over to Tracy at Dies To Die For and she will sort you out with some no probs, cos that’s just the sort of sweetie that she is xxx

The fabbytastic (or should that be tabbytastic lol xx) papers are Pink Petticoat and I’ve used Gingham and Little Harlequins. Verry delish!!


I put this pic is so that you can see how I edged the image with some Glamour Dust. I also did the flowers cos I just cant stop once I start with that stuff!!!


We haven’t seen my fave ribbon here at the pig sty for a while and I thought it was about time I remedied that. Ohhh I just LOVE it.

And there’s a bit of Martha on display as well, which Tracy can sort you out with as well :)

Picture 012 copy

And that is me card for today lovely peeps.

Now I just realised that the glue hadn't quite dried where I'd stuck the sentiment on. I used the silicone stuff and obviously squashed it on the way to the light box thing to take the pic.


I'm off to lie down in a dark room whilst repeating my new mantra ‘I must check my cards more carefully before I take their pic’ several times until it actually sinks into the three remaining brain cells that are lurking in the dark space that is my bonce!!!!

Now that IS sad lol xxx

Have a great day sweet peas and see you soon a soon.

Huggiest of hugs xxxx
