Best Fishes

Hello, thank you for visiting me. An other card made with some scraps of paper... This kind (i believe it was an older Basic Grey line) is now all gone. If you are interested.. the other projects made with that paper can be viewed here:
"Valentines" Chocolate favor box with instructions
"Get Well" Teabag holder card (Magnolia)
I thought the flowers of the paper matched quite nicely with the flower style of my new Martha Stewart Deep edger.

I tried to color little Lucy as a Seal point cat - kind of like our "Maus" looks like. He has gotten very big. Sometimes he likes to sleep here on my craft table. Not in the way AT ALL :-)

sentiment: Computer generated
Papers: old Basic Grey line, Stampin up
Embellishments: Stickles, Martha Stewart Deep Edger punch, Charms

Beautiful card Claudia.

Maus really has grown - my cats like to sleep in funny places too, they also like to "help" with crafting !!!!

Happy New Year to you all.


Danielle said...

So beautifully done Claudia! The papers are gorgeous and your colouring of Lucy is superb! Love your kitty pic - adorable! They definitely find the most 'convenient' spots to laze don't they!!!

Cool card!

I have 3 cats who all loves to "help" me with my crafting, sometimes they all help at the same time. It becomes quite crowded on my carftingtable from time to time ;o)

You have colored this cat very beautifully, and I love those fish-charms!
