Crazy


Remember I said I made another dotty card here it is, this time I used Tim Holtz Crazy cat. I just had in my head that the poor cat was a bit shocked to see a ball of wool as big as him.

I used Lets Polka in the Dark from Lawn Fawn for the cat and green background as well as diagonal strip for the scallop edging which was an Avery Elle die.

The ball of wool is from Memory Box die that I stuck to the same colour card then cut round it to give it a bit of dimension. Once again I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to make a frame with the Simon Say Stamps Wavy Stitched Scallop Border to make the green carpet.

To finish I used the Avery Elle Crazy die which I also have the stamp but decided just to use the die for now.

Now I'm sure this is the last busy week for a while, on Tuesday we had a Champagne Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, a Christmas Present from my daughter where we were treated like Royalty. Hair done on Wednesday and sitting by the phone yesterday. You may wonder what I mean by the phone, but one of my brothers under went surgery yesterday but he's OK and but has to have further treatment with chemo. So I'm looking for a few quiet days but first I have to go swimming this morning!

What a fun image the crazy cat is Debby and the ball of wool is a great and that cat does look a bit worried at the size of it..lol. I also love the stitched frame and dotty slope and the sentiment finishes it perfectly. x
