Cool Cat

Here's another cat card, made with the cricut lite Meow cartridge. You cut her perched on the piano keyboard, isn't that cute? I cut at 4", base in black, then the white keys, then the top layer of the face, again in black. The pink background paper is Bazzill embossed spots, it doesn't photograph well.

I gave her a bling collar...........

I had a great time at Stampfest yesterday, I have never been to a craft fair in the USA before. I had lots of basic stuff on my shopping list - bind it all wires, Tim Holtz foam inking pad refills and so on, I was able to get them all, plus quite a few stamp sets which will be getting an inking very soon. I took a video, which I need to upload, and if it is any good will put it on here tomorrow - I thought my UK blog friends would enjoy seeing the booths here. I was very taken by Inky Antics stamps, and a company called Darcey, which I had never heard of, they did the loveliest decorated shadow frames, and some unusual stamps. The Tim Holtz booth had some gorgeous samples - I am not at all into the grungey side of altered art, but these were just downright pretty

So, watch this space, off to do a bit of editing now, see you tomorrow

I am not a huge cat lover but this is just way too cute! Sounds like you had a fab time at the craft fair, I reckon a US fair would have to be the best, can't wait to see the video.

I have not been impressed with the preview pictures of the Meow cartridge from Cricut but this kitty is sooo cute. You have changed my mind about this catridge all together.

I love your card, En. It reminds me of our black cat, Nerys, who is a real softy and spends hours curled on your lap, but can also look very haughty too just like this one, when she wants.
The craft fair sounds wonderful, you lucky person. So many different exciting things to look at, I know I'd spend an absolute fortune.
Looking forward to seeing the video.
Hugs Lisax
