I think of all the places I like best, the one where it's almost painful to leave, is tucked up and cosy under a big fluffy duvet. And not just first thing in the morning either, I have always been partial to an afternoon nap, and whilst my small person does still have a nap most afternoons, it's not long enough for me! I need at least an hour and a half, followed by another half an hour of half waking, day dreaming. Blimey, I'm making myself tired even as I write. Better get on then!
My crafting mojo has been a bit absent this week, have spent a large portion of every evening staring at paper without having the slightest clue what to do with it. This evening I decided to print off a few digis, colour them in in front of some random TV show, and see what happened.
Lo and behold, a card has emerged, and it is quite possibly the most un-usable card I've ever made! I mean what possible occasion would call for such a card? Any suggestions would be gratefully received ;)
The digi was no doubt a freebie, but sincere apologies to the artist, but I don't know who you are! The sentiment was another freebie from the oh-so generous lady at Create with TLC, who has a huge amount of wonderful word art and images available.
The pussy cat was coloured in with pencils and blended with Zest-it, and cut out with my Nesties 1, I have chalked all over the white card with a green chalk to soften it a bit, and then mounted it onto some green Bazzill card, and then onto some Cosmo Cricket floral BP, which again is layered onto the same green Bazzill. The ribbon was a gift, along with the buckle, and I thought it looked a little like a cat's collar so there it sits in all it's glory.... (?)
