Not a card post but a wee funny one!!

I saw this and I just thought it was great for a crafty giggle.  I have no cats or kittens but I have 2 children who would also act the same in this role  - "it wasn't me"
Hope it makes you smile too!!

Hello again x

Right well after giving the card challenge a go the other day I thought I would do another!  So this challenge was to use butterflies and lace on the going buggy blog site!  The lace being normal lace or paper lace etc.   So I have used peel off glitter butterflies and my martha stewart lace boarder punch for my lace look.  I quite like the lace look in white as i think it looks fresh. Anyway hope you
like it!

My card for the Fetch a sketch challenge x

Here is my card that I have decided to make for my very first challenge I have had such a great time making this card!!!   The is for Fetch a sketch challenge so I am hoping that I can link it now to the Challenge with no problems so watch this space!!! 
 have stayed with the neutral colous and have used my Fave stamp set called Vintage vogue by Stampin Up.  I wanted  a stitch look around my circle so got my tiny paint brush and brushed on some embossing ink ready for my gold powder!   So after all that effort of doing that as a lastmin idea and messin with my tiny paint brush my bessie mate says " Oh they do an embossing pen did  you not know!"   Ummmmm NO!!!  Anyway Hope my efforts fit the bill for a challenge and thank you for popping by to see my blog!

Tim Holtz Style

Wow well I back again and this time I have tested myself by trying to put together a Tim Holtz style card so here it is!!! I do prefer more height in my cards but my first attempt just did what I felt comfy with which was FLAT lol . 
I have also used the Tim Holtz rock candy to give it a shiny sheen and a crackle look.
Thanks for looking and see you soon
