Christmas in May

A few weeks ago I won some images from The Stamping Boutique ,this Holly and Ribbon was one of them .I was lucky enough to win 5 images and later this week I will show the others. I printed the music paper and then added the image which was done with water colours.

Hello Kitty

A simple card using a die cut cat ,a sticker border and sentiment (which came from Merry ),buttons ,pearls and a doily.I struggled to find something for the cats eyes and used these nail art flowers which I trimmed down ,the nose is a small heart shaped sticker.

Ambers Crafts - challenge 10 -Cats and Dogs - I love them both but cats have a special place in my heart.

I made this gatefold card but can't remember which challenge it was for - the main image is from Graphic 45 ( there are 12 different fashion images approx 10cm x7cm ),the tag is also Graphic 45. The background paper is a perfect match but isn't part of the Graphic 45 range,the flowers are made from gathered vintage lace.
