Butterfly Background

Another clean and simple for this months challenge at Clearly Besotted - Stamp your own background.  I'm sorry about the bad photo but I can't seem to download the better one and sorry there isn't a link to Clearly Besotted I can't seem to get that to work either today so here it is the long way...

Seeing Spots

Long time no see! My first challenge card for absolutely ages is for Clearly Besotted Challenge #2 - Seeing Spots. I'm into a more simple style of card at the moment which I think is reflected in this card.

The butterfly stamp and die is from Clearly Besotted and the Happy Birthday die is from Britannia Dies.

Cute Kitties

Today I thought I would share with you one (or seven!) of the things that have been keeping me busy lately. Having lost my beloved cat, Oliver, at aged 18 earlier in the year the house seemed too empty without a cat so in April we had a trip to the local Cats Protection... and came home with Lola who was expecting kittens! A week or two later six little bundles of fluff arrived and for the following ten weeks we watched them grow into beautiful bundles of mischief.  Lola, Lily and Maurice are staying with us and are keeping us on our toes!

Penny Black Saturday

My first blog post in ages, no excuses I've just been lazy! This card is for the Penny Black Saturday July Challenge which is 'Summertime'. I'm also entering Stampalot July Challenge which is 'Whats your Crafty Passion?' and my favorite thing has to be colouring with my Promarkers.
Flowers, leaves and sentiment Petal Party from Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers. Paper and Candi from Craftwork cards.
If there is still anyone out there still looking at my blog I hope you like my card and fingers crossed there may be some more. :)
