Vintage Kitty

Hello... I hope you are all well today... I thought I'd show you a card that I made for my lovely blogging friend Janice's Birthday... I found this very cute Vintage Kitty on the Graphics Fairy and I thought it looked a little bit like her cat Merlot. I've teamed it up with some very scrummy Maja papers... ooh I had to take a couple of deep breaths before I could break into this pad!! Lol the papers are SO gorgeous!! 

Image: Graphics Fairy - 'Darling Kitty Cat'
Papers: Maja 'Vintage Spring Basics'
Flowers and heart were a gift from my lovely daughter... thanks hun!

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine in the UK... isn't it fab after all that horrid rain! I am quite busy at the moment... my daughter is working hard to get her PhD finished... she only has a week or so... so I'm helping her by checking everything, proofreading, printing stuff, sorting maps etc. But yesterday I squeezed in a bit of Crafting and finished off a couple of cards which was nice and I am going to catch up with the weekend TV later! :-))
Thank you for all your lovely comments!
Take Care
Love and Hugs

This is a gorgeous card Sue, I love the adorable kitten and your papers are so pretty.
The weather has been glorious hasn't it - I even managed to get some jobs done in the garden, I started to clear my greenhouse but it was rather hot in there so I moved outside.
Have a great week.

Janice said...

I certainly did LOVE this card Sue, it's so sweet and the cat is just the double of Merlot. Hope the proof reading is going well - that will be a lot of work just pulling everything together then doing the referencing & bibliography, what fun, but so worth it to complete a Phd. Been a super day here today - two loads of washing done and the grass cut! Just so nice to be out, Jx

Aaww such a cute kitty! Your friend is going to love this adorable card with the pretty embellishments and colours! Good luck to Chrissie, I for one am keeping my fingers crossed for her (and for you, too, for part of her PhD will be for you, too, lol!) Biggest of hugs, Ira xox

Hi Sue its lovely and sunny here in Blackpool this morning - so good isn't it! Your card is so pretty what a lovely picture of a cat and the flowers your daughter bought you are so pretty. Good luck to your daughter a lot of hard work and I bet she is pleased to be getting to the end of it. I'm so sad Call The Midwife has finished now I'm just waiting for The Great British Bake Off!
