Cards, Cats and...Carpet Cleaner?!

Ok, that's an interesting title!
The cards are all made using the Stampin Up! Stocking punch. There's a close up of the punch/legs so you can get a better look at how I have made the card. Also, the blue baby jacket is the stocking punch turned upside down & I have just chopped off a tiny bit of the stocking toes to make the sleeves on the jacket. So, you see, you can use the stocking punch all year round! It makes making baby cards SO much easier for me! Usually I struggle to make baby cards, I don't know why, but with this punch it's a breeze!
Now, the carpet cleaner/mop thing is what "Romeo-Valentino" won me the other day! His photo is published in the December 2011 - February 2012 "Pet Magazine"...he's famous yet again! I had no idea his photo was in there as I had sent it in some months ago & forgot all about it.
Then the courier arrives with this parcel for me, and in it was a congratulations note and this mop thing and a letter saying his photo was published in the latest issue of "PM"!! I tried it on the carpet & it really works! It's quite amazing!

Late Night Fun!

It was getting late when I finished these two cards, close to midnight! The cat in the stocking card was modelled on "Ro-Ro", can't you tell! He has tried, in vain, to get in the Christmas stockings I have on the Christmas tree but alas and alack, he cannot fit! Anyway I used the new SU stocking punch & some of the Raspberry Razzle card. Yumm, love that colour!
The 'shabby chic' sort of card took on a life of it's own which is why I was still making it at midnight! It wasn't going to have so much 'stuff' on it but it just seemed to glue itself to the card! Before I knew it, it was 11.59 pm & I said, 'I'm outta here', put the cap on the glue, and off I went to bed!
Ok, so that's all for this weekend, hope you had a great time! {{HUGS}}From me to YOU:-)

My Week In Cards!

I have to say, I just LOVE that little stocking punch from Stampin Up!! Seriously, it is just soooooooooo cute! In fact, I find it so cute that I even made a BABY card with it! This in itself is a miracle because I have trouble making baby cards. I just don't know what to "do" for a baby card! I have never found a baby stamp that I really like...if anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know! I also have trouble making masculine cards for the same reason...suggestions are welcome! BUT!! I will be making some more baby cards using that cute stocking punch, I just know it!
Ok, so what else have I got up there? Another SU punch/stamp set is the bird card, he too is very cute! And the punch & stamp set are both so easy to use, and did I mention quick?! (And fun!)

New Tag Punch & ?!

I love this new SU tag punch & am having a real blast with it! To be honest, I think I am addicted to it as I can't leave it alone for more than a few minutes!
You gotta get one!
Oh yes, that's "Romeo-Valentino" with my Pink Panther in the background! PP is wearing my rock & roll skirt!
Sighhh, it was one of "those" days!
Thanks for visiting, {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)

Guess What?!

"Romeo-Valentino", that's him in the post below with the pink umbrella haning off his foot, and sitting under the "Sexy GIRL" sign..sighhh; my cute black & white cat (shhhh, HE doesn't think he's a cat..) has just had his photo published in the 2012 RSPCA calendar!! We got a free copy in the mail! Oh Lord! Does that mean he will be out at the local shopping malls signing (p)aw-tographs?!! Heaven help me!
Having been published a couple of times already, he now believes he is famous...
Oh yes, I have some cards to post but seeing as it is getting late-ish, I will do them tomorrow..or some other time!
Thanks for dropping by, hope your weekend has been fabulous! {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)

Two Cats & A Ceramic Tile!

"Romeo-Valentino" just LOVES hanging around on my desk & pookering in all the nooks & cranny's & stealing 'things'! HE is not a 'Sexy GIRL' but he IS a cute bloke!
He just happened to plonk himself down in front of that sign & my sense of humour got the better of me! he's a real character.
And yes, he does have a pink umbrella (a photo prop I use with "Bella-Rosa) hanging off his back leg...I almost used him as a Christmas tree!
Oh yes, the ceramic tile is one I 'saved' from the rubbish bin down the road recently. I just glued some silk flowers and leaves to it, and a small ant.
It's going in my garden somewhere, just haven't figured out where yet!

Some New Stuff I Made!

Here's a mish-mash of a few things I did this week!
There's a photo of my Halloween Tree with spiders & stuff on it. Had to put it up on the microwave because I have an adventurous cat who would just LOVED to have climbed it! Not a good look!
There's a photo of my Memory Box die cuts. I cut out a pattern from each die & took a photo of them. Love those dies!
"Night Cat" is a Memory Box stamp. (Cat under the street light)
The Thank You card was a quick & easy card to make...gotta love them!
Ok, have a great weekend & thanks for visiting. {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)

A Gift From Sandra

...And if I go
while you're still here...
know that I live on
Vibrating to a different measure
Behind a veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time we can soar again
both aware of each other.
Until then, live life to it's fullest!
When you need me,
just whisper my name
in your heart...
I will be there.
