I used a Crazy Cats Stamp and Die SetMini Crazy Birds Stamp and Die Set and Mixed Media 3 Thinlits Die set. Three of my most fave stamps and die sets all on one card!! Woo hoo!


My Dad loves a local lager called Cisk, so I masked the 'milk' before inking the stamp. He also wears a hat most of the time so I had to give the cat one, set at a jaunty angle, doesn't he look dapper! :-) The kitty is quite worried that that crazy bird is going to swoop down and pinch his beer so he is holding it tightly ;-)
The birds eyes are pointing upwards on the stamp, so I masked those too before inking and then used a black pen to add them looking downwards ;-)


I am still in London on vacation so I will catch up with you all when I get back :-)

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.



You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in




Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

Those two critters from the 2 different TH collections, worked perfectly together in your clever and masculine composition. I like the fun color scheme you chose as well. Blessings!
