Sneaking a peek naughty cat

Hello blog friends, hows it going, we are having a nice chilled day today,

Yesterday was havoc!! but it all really started last week.

Mums tooth broke off last week so we managed to get her into 

see the dentist, they were really nice really helpful, because of mums

chemo she can't have the tooth removed in the dentist chair she 

needs to be knocked out.... so they didn't treat it last week. 

On Tuesday we noticed a swelling on mums face so, I called the dentist

yesterday and they got her in right away which was brilliant

and she has an infection so she's off her chemo for another week

because she has antibiotics to take..... then next week they are 

going to put in an antibiotic filling... poor thing when it rains it pours doesn't it.

***********************

Let me get onto the card 

This little cutie is from the Colorado Craft Company 

its called No Peeking

the artwork is by english author Anita Jeram. Me being me

I can not resist a cute animal stamp.



Looking at it now I know why the perspective looks out, the tree
is slightly in front of the main image, its all a learning curve and
without mistakes we learn nothing. But it 
kind of looks like he's hiding away lol.

Here are a few challenges I've entered

CRAFT Challenge: # 660 Christmas Present
Crafts Galore Encore: #106 Anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge: # Christmas or Movement.

Have a lovely Thursday my friends, 

I will see you back here tomorrow with Crafty Catz Challenge.

Take card much love

Christmas Happy Dance

Hello my lovelies, after the big ole brain fart I had yesterday,

 I thought I'd share this Christmas card with you .... but this time

post to the correct blog. !!!

I made this card for my SIL and BIL they love guinea pigs and hamsters,

 so as soon as I saw this cute conga line of guinea pigs

by the Colorado Craft Company, I thought this was perfect.

The stamp set itself is a celebration set called Conga Line

 and at the office party don we not Conga lol.

This set is perfect for anytime. I probably went a little over board with

 the confetti.... oops. Its only paper lol.

The sentiment I used was free with a crafting magazine.



The checked paper is from Honey Bee Stamps, Make It Merry paper pad.

Here are a few challenges I've entered.

Digi Choosday: # 48  Anything goes
Allsorts Challenge: # 704 Wings and / or Tails

As you Like it Challenge: #  Favourite non traditional Christmas Animal
( I like to make cards to draw a smile, thats why I chose guinea pigs.)

Holly and the Ivy Challenge: # Anything Goes Christmas.

I hope you all have a pretty amazing day, here in Cornwall
 its a cold and quiet one, I love those days.
take care my crafty friends, see you again soon
Thank you so much for stopping by
much love

everyone else's needs before her own.

in her shop.  The sentiment is a digi set from Sweet November Stamps.
