Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Blog Hop and Use a product available in Simon Says Stamp  and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing Art Impressions stamps this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)  We certainly had a LOT of fun with these images this week!

I would like to thank the lovely people over at Art Impressions, especially the lovely Kate :-) They have been so generous and also sent all the DT a stamp of their choice to use for the challenge !

I chose this new Cat Lady Tri Fold stamp set 

OMG ,, she looks just like ME with all of our cats  ( if you didn't already know we have 7 little cuties :-)) I have tried to colour them to match mine ,, haha , the ginger tom is Tiggie, the grey one is Tom, the multi coloured one is Phoebe, Jack is hiding underneath the chair ,,  Mopsy is too difficult for me to colour so I left her in the kitchen having an early lunch :-)

I used a new Simon's Exclusive Brackets die to shape the top and I used a Wood Veneer Cat from Studio Calico to pop his foot against the door to stop it opening, then you just move it slightly and then ,,,,,,,,, the best bit !!

 I love how it opens up ! 
and that sentiment is PURRRFECT ! :-)

I really didn't want to add any embellishments to it,,, I thought the stamp was fabulous on its own and needed no distractions. All I did was to add a clock, cut on the Silhouette Cameo and set to almost 1pm kitty lunch time :-)

I had alot of fun making this and I know the DT had fun with their stamps too ,,, these Art Impressions stamps are hilarious  !! LOVE THEM :-)

So now it's your turn !! Hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and join in the fun !

This is so adorable Lols - a brilliant image and I love the variety of cats you've managed to 'cram' into there - especially the tortoise shell ones. 16 cats + 3 extra on the inside - that's a lot of colouring - phew!!!!!
Love it!!!
