The cat's whiskers

Hi everyone. I had a very busy but lovely day yesterday- I teach in Gloucestershire twice a month so I had a drive up to Cirencester and back in the sunshine. I managed to combine it with a visit to an ex colleague (he calls me his work mum) who now works there and it was lovely to catch up with him. Hopefully today will be quieter though.

Today Craftwork Cards are launching a new collection called Pampered Pets and I LOVE it! The images are great and the papers are fabulous bright colours.

Now I like both cats and dogs but it's cats I love most so I thought I'd share my cat sample cards with you first.

For this card, I cut the two cats from a topper and sat them in a heart aperture to make a cute Valentine Card.

For my second card, I used gems to add lots of sparkle and create a girly look:

However my favourite card of all has to be the one featuring my gorgeous cat, Muffin:

For this card I created a photo frame with an acetate window and placed my photo behind it. I raised the frame on foam pads so I could add a few sequins behind it. I cut the princess cat from a topper- I love this image as all cats think they are royalty! I finished the card with a few more sequins and a sentiment.

I'll share some dog cards another day but would love to know what you think of this clowder of cats.

Thank you for visiting and commenting today x
