There Can Only Be One Queen .....................


I found this great stamp in the dollar bin at Michaels, and knew straightaway what I was going to do with it, the cat was cut from the Paisley cartridge, all the papers are DCWV. I thought it would make a great card for a cat lover


I added a few white highlights to make her pop..............


I have finished all the word books/wedding albums/exploding boxes etc that I am doing for peeps back in the UK, as I tied the final ribbon it suddenly occured to me that I now have to pack all these things into my already overweight bags as well. Shipping to the UK is so expensive, but I may be forced to go down that route
Mike has just been browsing the local paper, where there is a obituary for a chap who was known to everyone as NASTY. What a nickname to carry through life, it seems almost cruel that it follows him in death (rather funny though, he is obviously a great loss to the human race............), still, nasty or not, someone loved him enough to put it in the paper. The local paper here is a great source of mirth between us every morning, I think my favourite, which I have probably written about before has to be the side by side burial plots that were being offered for sale, in a lovely spot, overlooking a lake. Reason for sale - Divorce!!
Mike's all time favourite was the anguished plea for a lost cat, black and white, looks like a cow
I the meantime, I have my last crafty get together today, so cheerio for now, off to play

What a wonderful card! The sentiment is just perfect for that cat. Love your stitching, too. I haven't stitched on a card recently ... not sure why. Maybe I need to rethink that!

You have done it again, you've had me in stitches trying to imagine you cramming everything but the kitchen sink into your cases and those obituaries are hilarious.

Deb said...

fabulous card, so love the cat, love your local paper stories, so funny. I agree on the postage to the uk, so expensive, a huge shock to me, not so the other way! I pay about $20 per parcel and yet my friend paid around a fiver to send me a similar sized parcel! Very unfair!
have a great weekend, hugs Debx

Neesey said...

I just found that same stamp last week! I love how you used it. Great cat!
