Another retirement, and still not me!

Believe it or not, but I've finally made a card. One whole card since, umm, lets not even go there. This card is for a friend at the office, who is sending it to a colleague in Zurich, seems lots of my cards are going north. Pretty cool.

When I saw the free shipping offer from Elzybells recently, and it was free international shipping, I just had to order some stamps. I love Elzybells stamps, they are so easy and such fun to work with. Believe it or not, but I ordered a stamp I already had. Thank goodness I realised it before my order was packaged and shipped and Elizabeth was very kind to exchange it for me. Of course this was the one I chose. Now look how handy it has come in. The lady who's retiring loves cats, and I figured this image was just puuuuurfect.

I coloured the image with my lyras and blended it with Sansador. Oh I knocked my bottle of Sansador over the other day! What a stupid thing to do, and at the cost of that stuff, so not something I hope any of you ever do.

I've included a close up picture of the image, just so you can see how cool this cat is. Not even scared of the dog, typical of cats though. Cheeky, unpredictable and ever so adorable.

I've got lots of images all coloured up waiting to be made into something other than a coloured image laying around my house at the moment, so hopefully I'll be getting to make at least one more card before the end of the week, but I won't hold my breath, so don't hold yours either :-)

If you have some spare time and want to see some great cards, go do the My Favourite things Blog hop, it starts here with Kim. But ladies, and guys if there are any of you out there, please don't get too excited when getting to Paula's blog - don't ask why, you'll see when you get there, LOL!!!! Don't we just love her.
