I havent blogged for a few days so I thought I'd share this scrapbook page which I made just before Xmas and then framed to give to my parents.
Tukka was their cat who sadly was run over last summer and despite having lots of treatment, had to be put to sleep as she wouldn't eat.
She was 10, a shy cat around strangers but despite being the smallest of their animals along with a huge tabby tomcat and a staffie dog, she was definitely the boss! If she wanted a seat, she made the other animals move! She was also known to stare out a human who was sitting in 'her' seat!
Rest in peace Tukka, we all miss you xxx

Well I've tried my best but I must admit I found it very difficult and kept wanting to add more things! So I've ended up with a flowery topper I got free from a mag when I first started out, layered onto a few shades of purple, ribbon and some pearls. I know the pearls look a bit odd just plopped onto the flowers, but for some reason there was a weird hole at the top of the die cut , as if you are meant to hang it by a thread? It looked a bit naff just left as a gaping hole so I dotted a pearl on top then of course, you can't just have one so I had to add more. I'm hoping it looks ok though!

Here's my entry for this weeks Allsorts blog. This week the challenge was to create a card following a sketch but also either using something Old or New from your stash! I chose to use New - some of my Gemstones cardstock that Santa brought me! I love the pearlescent sheen it has and I've used this for the scalloped circle in the centre, along with flower faries decoupage, My Minds Eye papers, papermania E-line flowers, brads, card candy and some tiny green buttons I found in my stash, thought they were very cute :) Thanks Allsorts!

This week over at Charisma Cardz the theme is Celebrations! I've chosen to make a Birthday card. Image is a papermania stamp coloured with a sakura stardust pen, paper is Basic grey euphoria. Flowers are also papermania, sentiment is from craftwork cards, and other embellishments are from my stash. Thanks for looking!!
