Charity Card - Kitties!

Well you know me and cats! You can tell by my background, it has my beloved Bertie on there, who sadly died 26th June 2009 and I miss him every day.

You will find cats on a LOT of my cards, they just look so cute don't they!!


Here's what you need to make these cards (top card first!):

  • Purple cardstock for the base card - in fact any colour you like - this is just my choice at the time obviously!

  • Fancy decorative paper (with butterflies embedded in silver in the actual paper) - freebies from a friend

  • Pink kids craft paper pleated and using DST add to the right hand side of the card

  • Butterflies (punched by a friend) and added to the top of the pleat and randomly placed on the backing paper

  • Kitty image (freebie download) coloured with Twinkling H20's

  • White oval cardstock behind the kitty

  • "Happy Birthday" peel off from stash

Second card used the following:

  • Pink cardstock from stash

  • Flowers embossed using Cuttlebug machine and used as backing

  • Kitty (freebie download) coloured with Twinkling H20's

  • Sentiment printed on PC, matted and layered onto gold card

  • Various flowers from stash

  • Add a button to the centre of the middle flower

Two more to add to the charity box cards! mojo is back!

These are really lovely Karen - you've combined things beautifully and kitties will always win the day! Glad to hear your mojo is back - just as well considering Christmas is less than 100 days away apparently. :)) Di x

I think cats always make a good card we all love our kitties. You certainly have your mojo back and look forward to seeing lots more of your lovely cards.
