Lap of Luxury

This is my entry for the CD Sunday Challenge this week - Feline Friends.  I have so many CD's with cat images I just didn't know which one to choose, I eventually decided on my Joanna Sheen Furry Friends, I just love Rachael Hale's fab images.

The image and the papers are from the CD and the sentiment is from a Jayne Netley Mayhew stamp also from Joanna Sheen.  I made the little knitting needles with some cocktail sticks and beads and the ribbon, raffia and buttons are all from my stash.  The only tool that I used was a Woodware Craft Collection corner punch on the sentiment.

I have decorated the inside of my card with an insert reduced in size and layered onto some of the backing papers used on the front.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Feline Friends
The Corrosive Challenge 158 - Animal Companions
Craft Punked Challenge Week 37 - Pets
ATC's + Cards with Attitude - Anything Goes/Buttons & Bows
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 74 - Buttons
Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge 45 - Colour Challenge

Thank you for joining me this afternoon, please call back tomorrow for my Bearly Mine Designs DT card.

This is lovely Pauline, a great image and your embellishments are fab.

Sorry I've not been visiting as often, Sarah has just gone off to Uni for the first time and my head is all over the place!

You must be shattered with all the extra running around you're having to do. I'm pleased you're still getting some time to craft, I think we need it to help keep us sane, and I love seeing your creations.
