Furry fun

Wow.....2 days in a row....that's a rarity these days!!

As I said a couple of days ago, I did get my new High Hopes stamps....& oh what fun they are!! Can you imagine trying to decide which to use first? I know, I can hear the collective "Awwwwww......."




Since I'm a huge fur baby fan, I decided to ink up Andrea's Kitties first. I would say it's my favorite of the new release, but that will only last until I ink up the next one, lol. I used my Prismas to color her....stamping the kitties twice....cutting them & popping them on dimensionals. But then when it was done, I thought it looked dumb. I mean, now her hands are lower than the basket. That's not right. I almost ripped that layer off & tried to redo it, but decided to just let it be. THEN the layout was supposed to follow this week's Friday Sketchers sketch......but I couldn't get it to work. I couldn't figure out what to use for the 2 elements beside the image. I had tufts of tulle there....but yanked them off because they looked dumb....so decided to just finish it the way I wanted & forget the sketch. I'll have to try that layout for another card because I really do like it. But now looking at it, I wish I hadn't put the tulle behind the image. An actual ribbon would have looked better....or nothing at all. The tulle just looks.....you got it, DUMB!!!! (and besides it's crooked......grrrr.......)

Believe it or not, I don't hate this card, lol. The image is so darn cute that I don't have to like the rest of it. Oh, but I did use flower punches that kind of look like daisies, so that makes this my card for this past Sunday's High Hopes challenge.....to use daisies on your card!! At least I got something right! Until someone leaves me a comment that they aren't daisies.....

Do you see why some days it's difficult to be me??





Here's a close up of the cutie with her kitties.....the card doesn't look bad if you just look at this picture.......baaahahahaaaa.....

You still have a few days to enter my blog candy.....see first post above....& I just have to give a shout out to Patsy B.....who left the funniest comment on that post....but no email address or I would have emailed her privately. Girl, you made me laugh out loud with your comment....I don't know what's funnier....the wallpaper, or the frozen Snickers for dinner!!

Hi Michelle,
This is a gorgeous card, that anybody would be proud of. Boy, are you really tough on yourself!!
I can see that this stamp will have to fall into my shopping basket, love those little kitties. I have 2 of my own, two girls that are treated like royalty (as they should be.)
Have a good day.
Lots of love
Elaine xx
