Must love cats

....actually and dogs and birds too! LOL!! Anyone coming into my house now is going to have to be an animal lover. Not that it was any different before, but now there's so many and such a variety, I think it's going to be a must!

I just had to use this stamp, Kittycattabella from Stamping Bella, seeing I have a little kitten (taking over here I'll have you know). I figured it was a good time to pull out this stamp. Even if there is never ever a use for this card, I'll just look at it every now and then to remind me of this time.

I coloured the image with prisma pencils blended it with sansador, then cut it with nesties and layered it on nesties. The idea of the layout comes from a creation Amy Sheffer did not so long ago. Amy is probably one of the people who inspire me the most. I have never come across anyone else who can make such stunning creations. If you have possibly, although I cannot imagine that, never come across her blog do go and check it out!

I am so depressed today, rofl!!, it's my last day at home doing as little as possible, okay that's not true, I've been quite busy, but I have NOT been going to work. Tomorrow it's back to that silly old place that pays the bills, damn if only they would pay themselves.

I shall be back soon with more and we have a new release at Stamping Bella this week. Don't forget to check out the Bellablog, you'll find all the details there.

Have a great Sunday.

Oh my goodness, I actually teared up a little bit when I read this, Meahni! You are too kind! Thank you!

I love how your rolled/folded flaps turned out! I love that Bella image, too - I've never seen that one before!

Oh hunny this is so beautiful, love the design, the colours, and the image is so adorable.
You need to find a nice rich man that can give you a fabulous life style and you won't need to work, just stay home craft and play with the furry babies, I'm dreaming again aren't I lol
big hugs Mandy xx
