RUNNING TAP..JUST BECAUSE.



Hello Everyone...

I have no DT work to show you at the moment so about a tortoise shell cat in a garden?....

I had an order for an anniversary couple, no special mile stone or anything and they both love their garden and their tortoise shell cat...

The garden bit was easy enough but the tortoise shell cat was proving to be a problem as the pictures I found were 'too' real.....then I thought of something..

I found a cat and printed it as big as I needed which was nearly an A4..

Then I popped on my Marianne die cat and cut him out..ta daaa..a tortoise shell cat.



Cool eh!..I added some green card stock behind his eyes as he looked a bit vacant..



There is the whole card with Puss keeping watch..and used my "Congratulations"die from Janes candy [thank you]..

A few die cut leaves across the top and just a few flowers...



A side view...the lady was really happy and glad she was able to post this off without taking out a mortgage.

So there we go...I'm so run off my feet at the moment at work and struggling with keeping up with everything on blogland...so please excuse me while I catch up on colouring and stuff in the next few days..I will be back on the fisrt of the month with new challenge posts and new releases to share..in the meantime stay happy and safe....smile lots and be nice to one another..

Luv CHRISSYxx

So beautiful Chrissy! They sure do have a nice garden, I can see why they love it. Wonderful idea for the card base! The kitty cat is so cute and the vines are lovely hanging overhead! Very special for their celebration! :)

What a fab card you’ve created Chrissy! I love the cat - he’s very handsome with his lovely green eyes!
and such a beautiful garden. I feel like I could walk straight into the card and sit down on the chair, sip a glass of lemonade. Roll on next Summer!! ;-)
Hope you are keeping well
Have a great weekend!
Lots of Love Sue B xx

Absolutely gorgeous what a wonderful idyllic scene I can picture myself sat in one of those chairs just enjoying life at a much slower pace, the added die cut leaves and kitty are perfection
