a special smile!

well today i am showing my card for the "cute card thursday" challenge, which this week the theme is "cats and dogs" ~fantastic news ~ i can used one of my favourite cat pennyblack stamps!! then decided it was time to use some paper from my basic grey archaic collection ( haven`t been able to bring myself to cut it up and use) , so on firday , as the internet was not working, again, i got down and made this card!! so was so surprised on saturday when on "pennyblack saturday" challenge the theme was ""mens card" using no blue, and the new "basicgrey" challenge was to use buttons!!

have used "absolutely silly about you" pennyblack stamp, basic grey archaic paper, sizzix buttons (made with the paper/card), heroarts and stampendous stamps (used on the inside) i
really enjoyed making this card for someone special!

hope you have a great day, byeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Hello Nessy
This card is fantastic, no wonder its one of your favourite Penny Black Stamps, its adorable. You certainly have a busy day ahead of you I hope Lewis goes to school with no problems. Your schools are later than ours. Jasmine has been back a week already. I need to do a shop too, but don't have the heart to go, would much rather be crafting. Hugs to you. Linda x

oooo I do like, especially the way you've painted the pussy cat, he's cute, but not as cute as Jazz. Like those buttons too. Another brill card hugs Vicki oxo's
