Cats at MAWTT

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
What a miserable start to the day it is here in Gloucestershire - so dark and damp!!! 
Best place to be is safe and warm in my little crafty haven so that's where I'm heading once I have shared my DT project for this week's challenge over at 

and this week our lovely Janice has picked the theme 


So here's what I did:

Card Ingredients:
Image: LOTV Pre-Coloured Art Pad 2 'Jack, Patch and Puss'
Design Papers: First Edition 'J'adore'
Embossed Heart: Sizzix 657235 Lacy Heart 
Spellbinders: Heart Squares and Plain Squares
Martha Stewart: Frond Punch
Flowers and Berries: WOC
Wooden Flower and Adhesive Gems from stash
Made With Love Tag and Gingham Ribbon: The Hobby House

Our lovely host Janice is offering this fabulous stamp as this week's prize:

and has asked us to post a piccie of our special moggy's too.

Here's my Pickle-Lilicat the day we brought her home (just over 4 years ago) 

Ooooooh she was just like a little ball of fluff :o)

And here's a piccie from last night - she is still a little beauty don't you think?

Can't wait to see your special cats too.

Challenges I would like to enter:

MMCS - January Challenge 'Love'

Thanks for popping by to see me today - I really do appreciate your continued support and always look forward to reading any comments you may wish to leave.

Have a fabulous day.

Beautiful layers and gorgeous flower detail, Debs.
OMG how cute was Pickle as a kitten and how pretty is she now! xx

Hazel said...

Love that beautiful card, Debs, the colours are gorgeous. Your cat is lovely and the photo of 'her' as a kitten is super. I think of all cats as 'shes' and all dogs as 'hes' which causes all sorts of problems as one of my sons has a female dog and male cat!! Hazel L. x

Claire said...

Love your card Debs, great layout, colours and detailing and how weird is that I have just used exactly the same image on a card I have been making, but I coloured mine in! Great minds think alike eh? Have a lovely evening. Hugs, Claire x
