Cute Card Thursday

On Cute Card Thursday this week we were told.....
This week we are asking you to use patterned paper on your card in honour of our fabulous blog candy donated by Andrea of Kaboodle Doodles. She is offering one lucky winner, chosen at random next week, some fabulous downloads. Pop on over to her website here and check out the gorgeous papers available to download!


Well , yesterday I tidied my craft room/spare bedroom because my daughter is coming tonight for the weekend and bringing Evie and the kittens for us to see for the first time.

When I had made up the bed and cleaned the lure of a clean and tidy workspace was just too big a temptation so I made her birthday card for next month.

It fits in nicely with the theme of this weeks challenge. I bought the cat stamp over a year ago intending to use it for her card last year but as it was her 21st went with something a little more 'special'.


The cards is a nice big A5 size and has a lovely white hammered texture. I layered it with a floral piece from Making Memories pad. The cat stamp is from Anitas and has been stamped with Versafine ink in grey. Only the nose, inner ears and heart have been coloured with watercolour pencils. I cut out a heart shape around it and echoed this with a heart in purple which I slightly offset to give a shadow effect. The peel-off greeting has been put onto the same purple card and decorated with heart brads.
