Christmas Kitty

The Cat Lovers hop was such a sweet challenge I just had to make a second card and as we are fast (very fast ) approaching the festive season I thought it was a good idea to make a holiday card.

Her  Peaceful Garden - Cat Lovers Hop - I used lots of glitter on the hat and gold thread to sew a few different stitches. A second star was cut out and raised on a sticky dot.

Kitty cat

For more than 20 years cats played a big part in my life - I can think of nothing better than to snuggle up with a big ball of fur. Sadly since we came to Australia our home has been pet free - we are constantly told to keep cats indoors as they kill wildlife - cats are great explorers , I  wouldn't want to keep my cat confined so I'm on the lookout for an agoraphobic cat LOL.
The stamp is from DEEP RED and called FANCY CAT

Tip Toe through the tulips

Every year the tulip farm in Wynyard is open to the public for about six weeks - we arrived very early in the morning when the mist was still low .Row upon row with thousands of tulips -some small and neat others with large  loose petals . I forgot my camera so these are just from the phone - they also have fields of beautiful purple iris.The day soon warmed up and by 10am I was glad I put on lots of sun screen.
We stayed overnight at The Waterfront Wynyard Motel which has super comfy rooms and a great buffet breakfast .

Love is in the air

Love is in the air with my balloon shaped card for our challenge 106 at Let's Craft and Create -our theme this month is ribbon or twine - this shape is from The Cutting Cafe - pop over to the other team members and see what they have made using the cutting files- you don't need a fancy machine I cut mine out by hand. Cutting Cafe also have lots of sentiments to match the cutting files.
