Kitten Cuddles

Hi there.  Today's card is a little different for me but I thought I'd have a go at a more dimensional style of card. I'm always conscious of postal charges so keep my cards reasonably flat but a lot of cards that win in the challenges have flowers etc. so I thought why not try it. The stamp is from Lotv called Kitten Cuddles. I do have stamps from other companies, I promise, but have a lot of Lotv stamps I haven't used yet ( don't tell my hubby that though or he'll never let me buy anymore stamps!) So here's my card I hope you like it.

and a close up shot


The little rose on the butterfly was one of the die cuts that came free with my order from Craft Mojo . It's such a good idea to send them as once I rolled it up it looked so pretty I just had to buy the die. So expect more roses! Also Sally, from the site, was so lovely on the phone when I rang to ask which die had been used for it.

I'm still sorting through my mums craft stuff! She was a prolific crafter to say the least. So far the list is: knitting, crochet, quilted cushions, fur toys, pyrography, china painting, cross stitch, watercolour and acrylic painting, glass painting, patchwork and card-making. I'm making sure I find good homes for everything with charity groups and friends who donate to my mum's charity but we're still surrounded by lots of bags!!
So I'd better go do something or the Secret Hoarder gang will come round, lol.

Thank you for your visit, your kind comments make me very happy. Sending you all a hug

  11. Hi Debra. Hope you had a good weekend especially with the pleasant weather. No crafting done here this weekend as I was busy with chores & supermarket shopping, while Steve mowed lawn etc. Congratulations on winning Carole's candy I look forward to seeing your new creations.
