Art Impressions Cat Lady

Good Morning all, I hope you're all having a great weekend!

A challenge blog teamie is going through a pretty tough time at the mo' and I would just like to send her special Get Well Soon Wishes XXX  

I made a little kitty treat bag to share today! I have 9 cats (all were strays and just turned up starving, or were in need of a home and adopted from the SPCA) 2 of them have been having health issues and yesterday hubby and I spent the morning at the Vet Clinic with them. They aren't out of the woods yet but I thought it would be nice to make them a little treat bag to put some very special nibbles in there for them ;-) 


Now I know some of you will think I have completely gone off my rocker, but really, honestly, I am not a mad cat lady!!! 😜

I used a super cute Art Impressions Cat Lady Cling Stamp Set and a Lawn Fawn Goody Bag Die. I stamped the paw print background using a Furry Kisses Stamp Set and Watermelon Ink and used a LF Harold's Alphabet Stamp Set for the sentiment banner 


Thanks for looking!! :-) 

I receive a small commission on sales through my blog, this makes no difference to the amount you pay. I donate 100% of this to various charities, including SPCA Gozo, Birdlife Malta, Island Sanctuary Malta, Oxfam. every little helps xx Thank You

Simon Says Stamp Classic Bicycle


Just a note to say that my thoughts are with the friends and families of the poor people who were involved in the Genoa bridge collapse. Such a terrible tragedy, so very sad.

I am here to share a card I made using a new Classic Bicycle Die from Simon Says Stamp!


I started by slightly blending Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced marmalade Distress Oxide Inks onto some Watercolor Paper. I then die cut the bicycle from the paper and again using Silver Card stock. I then layered the bike as shown. 

I also used a fabulous Reveal Wheel from Lawn Fawn, love this die set!! :-) The papers are from older, now discontinued, Lawn Fawn Paper Packs 


and I finished the inside 


Thanks for looking!
