Something a Little Different

Good morning crafty friends.

I'm putting a post up before my Son's friend comes around as I won't have time to do it later!

This card is a little different for me (as you can probably tell lol - oh except for the black card - it's a fave!).  I bought some new window dies and a brick stencil to create this little scene.  The little cat came with the windows die.  I like how it turned out, although I found doing the window and window box a little fiddly.

Here it is...



It was a fun card to do.  The brick stencil is from the Craft Workshop and the Window Dies are from First Edition.  I have used Adirondack Purple Twilight ink pad for the bricks.  My cute image I got from Art by Miran.

Challenges:-

4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes
Art by Miran - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Fur or Feathers (fur for me as I adore cats and I am getting a kitten very soon as my lovely Suki passed away not too long ago aged 24 - miss her so much).
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - August Anything Goes 
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day

I Want to Ride my Bicycle

Good afternoon everyone.

The summer holidays started here for my lad and it's nothing but rain.  He's been good though.  He's been spending a lot of time on the computer with a friend and on Thursday he has another friend coming here, then he is going to that friend's house on Friday.  They will be stuck inside though as the rain is on for the week.

I have a card to share....


This sweet image is from Time 4 Tea Designs.  I had a little win from there a few weeks ago and got to choose some really lovely digi stamps.

I have coloured her in with Promarkers and the papers are Echo Park.  The cogs I have die-cut, then added gems to the centre.

Challenges:-

Art by Miran - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
