Ode to a Kitten

Hi everybody

It's time for Make My Monday again.  We are continuing with Fliss's Nature theme, and this time we want to see Animals on your cards.  Well my stock of animals is pretty non-existent, so I guess I am going to have to do something about that!!  So out came my lovely kitten stamp again.  Please do pop along to the challenge blog - there are some fab inspirational pieces of work.

The background papers are from a couple of pads, and the base is Bazzill.  I have stamped the kitten and then used Pan Pastel in turquoise around it.  I have done the same with the little poem as well.  A while ago I bought a couple of metal shim plates from Dies to Die For, and put them in the bug at the same time as cutting out - sigh - no more messing about with embossing mats as it is all done in one go. The flowers are a mixture of various Prima sets, and the ribbon, just seen on the tag, is from stash.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Paint - something old - my stamp is very old
Dream Valley Challenge - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - use Embellishments
Sparkles Forum - Anything but a Christmas Card
Crafty Emma - Anything Goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.



  1. little Domino is back so I can bear to look at your adorable kitten image. Its beautiful as its not too cute, has a vintage feel to it.
    Val - could you let me have more details of the sheets you are talking about that emboss as well as cut through the Bug.....please?

  2. Sweet kitten and I love the verse on your tag! I'm sure that my not so little kitten would be twitching away dreaming of the rustle of birds' wings!

  3. This is gorgeous Val. Such a cute kitten and I just love the text on the tag which goes so beautifully.
    Hugs, Fliss xx
