We 6 Cats

How cute are these !!

You can find then HERE just out at Little Claires  !!

We 6 Cats clear stamp

For my card I just made a background with distress inks, water and frantage, stamped and coloured my cats with Spectrum Noir pens and then decoupaged the middle cat. Added fluffy stuff for the snow at bottom.

I've also used the fab Little Claire  "Snowy Ombre" paper as my main card backing paper. Topped all off with a tule and ribbon bow !!

12 tags 2015

Late getting this one done as it has taken me a long time to decide what I was going to do !!

Tim's tag is all about celebrating America, red, white and blue. I would have liked to do the same but with Great Britain,  just didn't have anything in stamp form or bits and pieces to do it,  so I went for inspiring nature instead !!  Really do need to pick up some trinket bits and pieces....

The wildlife stamps are by Stamping Up and the sentiment stamp I think is a Lindsay Mason set. I've just water coloured using "Fired Brick" and "Stormay Sky" distress inks.

Here's Tim's tag to inspire us...

Zentangle ATC's

Warning very poor photo,  taken on a very wet and dull day...

Jo's June ATC swop was "zentangle" so I made these four zentangle dogs using the dreamweaver stencil.  I really had fun doing these, but loads of room for improvement I think,  I'm a bit messy.
Sadly they have gone missing in the post and I am gutted !!  So sorry guy's you won't be receiving a swop from me for June......hay ho that's life.

So tweet

When you find a super card and super present from a sweetheart of a friend on your door step like I did over the weekend ,  it just made my day !!   I had to make a thank you card straight away !!

I've had this Sizzix set for a while now called "Birds & Tree" which is really "tweet" don't you think..

I used patten paper and plain card to create my birdy scene with the stamps and matching dies.  Lots of lovely little bits of paper to play with !!  Added a bit of texture to the trees with an embossing folder and die cut some clouds as well.

A kind thought goes such a long way as I have said so many times made my day.
