Special Card - Kitty of course!

This image came amongst many other goodies from my good friend Diane for my birthday. I thought I'd make some cards out of it and have made four so far, all with different coloured flowers, and with many more to come too!

I used a backing sheet from a Creative Pad I'd got for only 99p! Yes 99p you read that right. I wasn't sure it would be when I purchased it, but the till came up with 99p so I went back and got another colour too! Shame they didn't have many.

I then used gold mirri card, and embossed it with ye olde CB machine and added some Prima flowers along with some Glitterations spots. I think these are going to be the 'in' things for now, seeing as postage is SO expensive now the cards are classed as "Large Letters".

After spending £30 on Postage before Christmas, I'm making sure my 'posting' cards have no large embellishments on them if I can help it. Probably the same as you guys huh!

Cute, cute, card! Just adorable.
I'm like you about the extra postage on cards being mailed......I made that mistake at Christmas this year - but won't next year for sure.
