Penny Black Puddy Cat.


Now I truly know the Christmas Holidays are over with our first Penny Black Saturday Challenge of 2011 and its for New Beginings which is perfect for the New Year.
I nearly used the Hedgie that Nat and Joey used but remembered this cute little puddy cat swinging on the moon which I think works well for a baby card. I decided on these colours cos sometimes you hear about a New Baby and you're not always sure if it a girl or boy, especially if my Mum tells you, she gets easily confused so this card would work great for that.
The papers are Fine and Dandy from My Minds Eye and I used brought flowers for change but still punched some stamens for the inside. I've also distressed round the image so the white card doesn't stand out among the papers that look more like cream.
Now we have some fab prizes this week so don't forget to join in and don't forget to check out the amazing team.

Another beauty, Debby. I so enjoy your colour combos and that swirl you have used alot recently is beckoning me to buy it even though I have lots of flourishes already.

I am so sorry for your friend who lost her daughter. My heart goes out to her.

Warmest wishes,Lesley

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for your incredibly kind comments. I really love this babies card. I can't work out whether you pieced the little cat or whether it is just your fabulous colouring and shading. Either way it looks like he is really swinging on that moon. Soooo cute!! All the best for 2011 :-)
