Just Purrfect

This is en route to Jan, a cat lover, who hosted the 'WOYWW Golden Day' last week:
Hopefully I was sneaky enough for this stamp not to be seen when I bought it at Shopkeeper Gal's that same day :)

I used:

- 4.75" x4.75" white square card stock

- stamp made by Funstamps, called appropriately 'Just Purrfect', stamped in SU 'Bashful Blue'

- SU 'Bashful Blue' backing card

- paper from Papermania's Capsule Collection, all pretty blues by Jesse Edwards

The stamped image didn't cry out to be coloured, so I tucked my paws in my pockets and left it well alone :)

I humped parcels and packages to the Post Office yesterday, one of them is a HUGE one stuffed full of crafting goodies for the Care Home where my step-mum now lives. But, you know what, she doesn't even go to the card making sessions :(

Friday Feast will follow, see you later.

Still haven't gone to bed - those cats caught my eye! You were very sneaky with that purchase, I didn't spot a thing :) Love the stamp though and like how you've left it as it is too. Looking forward to seeing what feast you have in store later. Hugs, Elizabeth x

Gorgeous card Di love the pale blue and yo are right it doesn't need colouring. I am sure the care home will appreciate the items you have sent. Hugs, Amanda x

I love leaving images uncoloured sometimes . . . it can be very effective . . . and it certainly is effective on this lovely card.

Have a sunny day xxxx

Another elegant card! I love that cat stamp, it makes me smile!

You are a very generous soul, Di. Even if your step-mum doesn't go to the card-making sessions now, maybe in the future she will. In the meantime you're benefiting the people she lives with, and that will make the atmosphere of the home happier.

much love, Mags B xx
