Quickity, quick, quick, quick

Hello blogworld,

Last day of school tomorrow, one more card to make, paper bouquets to finish, presents to wrap and I'm off to T'ai Chi shortly and I've bread rising that needs to be made into rolls. 

So no waffle today, just cards.  Oooh and kittens!  We still aren't back in the dining room, but I've managed to make the mess even messier so I could get to my stamps and Promarkers (I was just fading away without making cards, honestly I was guv'nor).  I'm working on  my mat with no space anywhere else and I'm having to carefully step over boxes and around tables to get in and out.  No worse than usual then!!!

So card:
Font shot:

Detail of image:

Of flowers (can you see that I've tried to give them dewdrops?):

Arty farty side image:
I used:

Lili of the Valley: Pom Pom - coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers
Sentiment set 9 - chalked

Memory Box - Bubble Daisy Border

Melissa Frances - 5th Avenue (it's beautiful, was a real struggle to cut into it!!)

Anything else?
Wild Orchid Crafts - Flowers
K & Co - tag (it was part of a 1500 piece scrapbook kit I've had for years and re-discovered when we moved everything for kittens)
Anita's 3d gloss

Now kittens - deep breath and awwww!!!!   No eyes open yet, but sure it will be soon.

A challenge, or two (then I'm going):

Lili's Little Fairies: Pretty in Pink

Stampin' for the Weekend: Challenge 13 - Tags

Sketch N Stash - Challenge 92

Wishcraft said...

Aww they're adorable Sarah... want one!

Love your card, one of my fave images (although I've not used her for ages - typical me!), pretty papers too :o)

Re the Fizzy Moon stamps - yes, I've found the same too... if you rub over them with a rubber before you ink them up that should help, or if you're braver than me you could try lightly sanding them! Hugs, Lisa x

Sarah said...

SO Cute! I have a grey and white kitten almost just like the one in your photo! Well I say kitten because he is still only 2, but my goodness he is a big cat! Not fat like just tall, and long! He is so very athletic, and can jump so high. But when it comes to sleeping he wants to snuggle right up close to you, so close so that you almost cant breath! *sigh* they are still so cute when there young, hope that they open there eyes soon!
