and then there were two

kittens that is!

Hello blogworld

So this is an unusual time for me to be posting isn't it!  It's because I'm taking an unscheduled break from the housework.  She Who Must be Obeyed is feeling poorly with a cold - she's had a couple of disturbed nights and is now asleep on her daddy's lap.  So what does mummy do?  Carry on with the hoovering and cleaning - oh nope!  She takes the opportunity of a bit of peace and quiet to surf and finish off a card!  I'm like that you know, no housework gene at all!!!!

Oh and the kitten dilemma, well it would appear that no-one wants an all black short hair female kitten.  The second b/w boy is going off to a new home next week and we will be left with the two all black girls.  They are all going off to be neutered on Monday (bit young I know but the vets are happy to do it) and I wonder if that will make a difference in getting her re-homed, but hubby is getting keener and keener on keeping her!  Hmmm, that takes us back up to 4 cats and I can see any holidays getting further and further in the distance.

Oh and my poor toes will never be the same again - they seem to think my toes are a great thing to chew while I'm sitting colouring!!

Anyhows, all waffled out now so here's the card:

Front shot:

Close up of image:

No arty-farty - instead here are those two pesky kittens:

Ewok and (currently) Worried, but (probably) Belle.  As in Tinkers' Belle (Tinker being the mother, and hubby being the the sharpwitted name giver)!

So for the card I used:

Sugar Nellie - Pippi Longsocks
coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers
Sentiment - Elzybells

Cheery Lynn - Flourish
Go-Kreate - the circles

A combination of two First Edition packs - New Leaf and Desert Bloom

Anything else?
Butterfly from my stuff
Craftwork cards - the kraft card

So you won't see me again this weekend, but I'll be back on Monday with my card for The Cutie Pies.


PS - Off to finish of the housework, if I must!!!
