Music 'n' cats.......

Morning all. Sorry not been around for a couple of days. I've been busy sorting things out for Georgia-May's birthday. She has made a list of things she wants for her birthday and there is one particular thing in a certain colour that I just haven't been able to get....aaarrgghh!!! Also been getting a few things for myself, ready for my London weekend.....can't wait. A whole weekend without kids....bliss

These cards are for an order I received via the florist who sells a few of my cards. I was asked to make a card, the theme being cats and music!!!! Now I am not a cat lover at all, therefore had nothing suitable amongst my stash. So I ordered this Penny Black stamp and the musical embossing folder from The Glitter Pot (fab service btw). I was only asked to make one card. I made the bottom one first and wasn't happy with it, so decided to make the one above, this way the lady has a choice, I don't like either of them though.
For this card the papers are downloaded from the Epson site 'cattitude'. I thought it looked too masculine, hense the reason for the pink/girly one above. The pics don't show the papers too well nor can you see the twinkly glamour dust.


I HAD A LOVELY DELIVERY FROM THE POSTMAN YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. MY 'KERRYJO'S' HAVE ARRIVED. FOR ALL THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, CHECK OUT HER BLOG HERE. KERRY IS ONE TALENTED ARTIST, WHO HAS BEEN MAKING SUPERB CARDS WITH HER GORGEOUS 'DOODLES'. AT LAST THESE 'DOODLES' HAVE BEEN MADE INTO STAMPS WHICH YOU CAN BUY FROM DEBBI MOORE DESIGNS. THE STAMPS THEMSELVES ARE FAB, THEY ARE A LOVELY SIZE, CLEAR ACRYLIC WHICH ACTUALLY STICK TO YOUR BLOCKS, THEY GIVE A LOVELY CRISP, CLEAR IMPRESSION WHEN STAMPED. I AM HOPING TO MAKE A FEW CARDS WITH THEM TODAY. I AM SOOOOO EXTREMELY HAPPY AND EXCITED FOR KERRY, SHE REALLY DOES DESERVE ALL THE SUCCESS IN THE WORLD, I COULDN'T HAPPEN TO A NICER PERSON, SHE'S ALSO A GREAT FRIEND TOO. WELL DONE KERRY.
