Something Different...


Hi everyone, have had my parents down for the day.  They have as good as told me that the large box wrapped up on my dining table (no pressies under tree this year due to puppy!!) is a sewing machine!  Yay!!! Can't wait to open it on Christmas Day now!
Logging on just now I have just noticed that I have lost a follower :(  Not sure what I have done but am sorry that someone has left... Was hoping to reach 200 soon but that may not happen if people leave...
Oh dear....

Todays card is a bit different for me.  It is using an image from Pink Cat Studio called Rex.
Isn't he just so cute!!!
I coloured with copics and added some circles and buttons for embellishments!
My resolution next year is to make some more varied cards and not just cute girly ones that I love so much so this is a start!





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes (first entry)
My Mums Craft Shop - Anything Goes

A sewing machine! how fab, I keep think of getting one of thosse small ones just for using on cards but even that sounds too extreme - someone buying you one is more than acceptable!! I'm so jel!!
Love your cute little card Catherine and the funky colours.
I lost two followers in the last two weeks - I was really distressed lol! You can't help but take it personally, though I have just found out there are more important things to worry about lol
Hope Toby has left some of your possessions un-chewed!
Hugs Laurie xx

Yay Catherine you'll love it! I love my machine, it's funny because I didn't bother with it for years then as soon as my cardmaking started it hasn't hardly stopped!
As for your follower someone posted on Docrafts about that happening to them, I think it's a blogger problem. I love your card by the way, makes a nice change to see a boys card, I rarely make them. Have a great Christmas, luv Teresa xx

This card is brilliant Catherine. And dont be worrying about losing a follower, Im sure they will come back. It could also be as simple as them no longer having a blog or google account any more so its automatically deleted. Lee x
