Do you have one?

Hello blogworld

A four legged friend that is?  We do, two of the purring, independent sort and currently one of them is laid on my arm seriously hampering my ability to type.

Anyho, I will plough on - I will just hope that he doesn't decide to bite (he does that you know) and you will just have to excuse any typo's!

So it's Saturday morning which means, in Sarah blogworld anyway, that it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin and as you might have guessed from the title this week we'd like to see your four legged friends.  So any type of animal anywhere on your entry (plus stamping of course!) is what we are looking for this challenge.

Our sponsor for this week is Whimsy Stamps, who are offering the winner five free digi stamps.

Our regular monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen, where a £10 voucher is on offer.

Want to see my card?  Oooh and tag - I made a tag!  First time for everything, eh.  This is what I came up with:

Front shot of card:

Detail shot of image:


Card and tag together: (and I've just noticed a deliberate mistake!)

I used:

Pollycraft - Marleys Party, coloured with my Promarkers

Nestie square and circle
Go-kreate (for the tag)

echo park - Splash

Mettalic thread and sentiment tag - from my stuff
Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment

I hope you like my cheerful card (inspired by Arabella's wonderful colour choices for her cards) and it brings a bit of sunshine into these dreary days that we are currently enduring.

Please pop on over to the challenge blog and you'll see all the little creatures that my teamies have used on their creations - and they are lovely (my teamies and and their cards!), I promise!

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Pollycraft Monday Challenges: Challenge #138 - matching card and tag

Emergency Crafters: Bold and bright

Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 215 - one for the boys (this is for a little boy in my daughters class at school)

Hi Sarah

What a fantastic card and tag - love the image and such bright vibrant colours.

I know what you mean about the biting - my little ball of fluff does this regularly - whilst purring at me too!

Thanks for popping by my blog - so appreciated as always.
