Our weather is on the up (shhhhhhh... it might hear us!!) - been a really good day today - no rain, some sun and quite warm....

The LIMettes have set us a challenge of 'Gold' this week... I have a card ready on the table that needs photographing but the light now here is not good - and I finished this a short time ago and took a pic of it straight away .... suppose I should have finished them both THEN took the pics... but that would have meant me engaging the grey matter and I've had a stressful day. (Not going to divulge too much but after a number of years spending a lot of time and effort doing a voluntary team captain job that no one else wants I am completely disillusioned with the attitude from some.... don't get me wrong, they're not all bad - just the odd one but that odd one is beginning to get right on my nerves!!!! - 'nuff said!).

Back to the card.... disappointed really with the pic but only cos it doesn't show the stunning sparkly blue eyes our little pussy cat now sports!  I coloured them with a Kuretake 'wink of stella' GL Blue pen.. which was a present from the lovely Alessandra - and boy do these eyes sparkle!(probably not as much as Bailey, Alessandra's feline friend ......lol) - but what great pens! Never seen them before (much to my shame) but suspect I may be investing in some more.......

Aperture cut in white linen card with a nestie, gold circle frame also cut with a nestie and the pic printed direct onto linen card. Then used 3d foam pads to stick the gold framed kitten cat under the aperture. 
I used WOW Gold embossing powder on the collar and tag and strung some metallic gold embroidery thread top and bottom, then coloured the cat dish and the two eaten fish (!!) with a gold marker pen. 

Am glad you've  called in - I appreciate it. x

    A really gorgeous finished look .. .. great for the cat lovers!! Fabby embellishments too.

    Sounds like your weather was better than ours. Quite a few big rain showers for us .. .. one made a mini river down the road.

    Our back lawns are like sponges full of water!!
