Crafty Kitty in the garden.

Colour Create have got some fabulous Blog Candy this week- Miss Anjas and lots of other goodies. They have asked us not to combine this week to be in with a chance of the candy so this card just follows their 'lilac and blue' theme. I was looking through my papers when I came across this little flower one from Partners which immediately made me think of this Crafty Kitty from Pink Cat Studio that I stamped out ages ago but had not used. The blue panel is Core'dinations which I sanded lightly and the ric-rac is from my stash. I put a button with my felt flower for a change (money saving tip- felt flower cut with my Sizzix from some cheap felt from the market!). Not sure about the gingham mat- looking back I think it would have been better plain lilac, but it's stuck now!

My son is having a really rough time at the moment- on top of the tonsillitis we had to take him to the out of hours doctor yesterday evening with really bad earache and his eardrum perforated in the night.

Fab card Alison - great use of the colours. I like the gingham, I think it helps to lift that cute image (I know what mean - hope it makes sense to you)
Thanks for joining us at CC.
