pussycat notecards

hello, its me, the worlds worst blogger!
I thought it really is time I came on here and showed you what I've been up to.
today I made a couple of quick notecards
I've used Kraft cardstock because I love it!
the adorable little cat is from oysterstamps, its a poppystamps die.
the sentiment is a whimsy stamp. and a little black and white dotty ribbon finished it off.
very quick and easy.
second up is ...
another kraft card. this time I used the hole left by the die and put black card behind it. I love the way this turned out.
I just used a copic fineliner to freehand the sentiment.
(note to self..... buy alphabet stamp set)
I finished it off with some freehand doodling around the border.
and here they are together. two little cards that took me less than 15 minutes to make.
keep an eye out for this cutie little cats, i'll be using them a lot!
I need to give them names because everytime I use the 'c' word my Tia jumps up and runs into the garden barking at the top of her voice. silly dog!
so if you can think of name let me know.
thanks for visiting me today and sorry for the shock that I actually got round to blogging.
(must try harder)

Vintage wedding

Hello, at last i'm feeling better and back to blog land.
I've made a Vintage wedding card today

I've used my new Heartfelt Creations die from spellbinders called Decorative Leafy Frame and backed it with some lace which doesn't show too well in the photo.
the photo is one I found on the internet with no copyright and cut out using spellbinders Opulent ovals. I haven't had a chance to play with these ovals properly yet but there are so many ways to use them. watch my blog for more idea's as I will give them another try tonight.
I wanted to show you the impression obsession heart stems but my photo's have decided to load the wrong way up and I have no idea how to put them right.
the heart stems are so delicate, I can see me using them a lot more.
grrrr another sideways photo showing the lalaland rolled roses and memorybox fresh foliage dies.
I used a little vintage photo distress ink to age the card.
all supplies from
thanks for stopping by.
