A House Is Not A Home Without A Cat

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.  Are you good today?


I would like to introduce our new rescue cat Sybil today and also show a card I made dedicated to her..

Here is Sybil



She is 2 years old and as you can see is quite a fat cat.  Now she has a home she is starting to lose weight.  She also has blocked tear ducts so her face can look mucky at time as her tears fall and dust gathers on them.  She won't let me clean her face but does so herself when she can be bothered lol.  You can't see from the pics that she has 1 green ey and 1 blue eye.  She is adorable and is now starting to be very loving towards us.

Here is her card....


It took me 3 attempts to get this shaker card right lol.  I followed the instructions out of the magazine the stamps and embossing folder came with (Simply Cards and Papercrafts) and still struggled.  I got it in the end!

Challenges:-

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes - optional Shaker Card
A Bit More Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day.
