Cute little kitty

I treated myself to the Colour Collections Paper Designs from Pink Petticoat over the weekend, as I really NEEDED some gingham - oh ok, I didn't really NEED it, but I wanted it.  It was such a bargain too - only a fiver and that is for 5 sets of papers, in millions of different colours (slight exaggeration, but there are lots!).  The offer is only on until Friday 9 April, so if you also NEED these, then be quick ;-)

I had coloured in this little kitty (another freebie digi from the fabulous Sliekje), so I needed something that would go with the darks greys. I went about printing off about a dozen different colours, different designs - and sat there with my card and just mixed and matched - guess what I chose - grey!!

I was a little unsure about the colouring, not happy with the green copics that I chose and then I kinda over did it, but hey - you learn from these things and there was no way that I could throw the little kitty away.

The little butterfly charm was in a pressie that I had from Faye - I have been desperate to use it on a card - and I just love it.  I was prepared for a battle with the jump rings, but they behaved, although the ribbon made up for it - and was determined not to thread easily!  So with much fraying and trimming I got there in the end.

I am working from home, as it is the Easter Holidays, so I am just waiting for the phone to start ringing and the emails popping into the in-box.

I best stop blogging and switch over the the work laptop - pah!  One conciliation is that the sun is shining in Exeter today, hope it is shining for you too - have a great day x


  1. You're too hard on yourself, I've seem it and the card is gorjuss. xxx
