Cats (and some birds)

The challenge theme this week on Make My Monday is cats, large or small and there are some great ideas from the design team, including of course some Halloween ones!  My cats are of the small variety and they are watching birds in a tree.  The background was embossed and sponged with Distress inks before adding the little die cut birds and cats.  Sentiment is a free stamp which came on a magazine (again) and is popped onto some die cut shapes.  The background piece of card was lurking in my bits box from a demonstration day so I decided to assemble it with the other items for this challenge - another 'bit' used up!!  As the weather has turned nasty after the lovely days we've been having I went into the craft room with good intentions to have a sort out but again became distracted when I came across this embossed piece - there are other items to use up too of course so the tidying could take a while at this rate.

Birds - Memory Box dies
Cats - Impression Obsession dies
Background - unknown folder (on loan for a demonstration)
Sentiment - free magazine stamp on various Sue Wilson die cut shapes


  1. What a gorgeous embossed background, love the colours and the delightful birds and card.

  2. I like the background! The die cuts look very effective on the card. Glad I'm not the only one to get easily distracted rather than tidying.

  3. Such a beautiful card Val, I love the embossed background with the addition of the cats and the birds it make a lovely scene.

  4. Amazingly sweet and beautiful scene you have created by using silhouettes on the delicately coloured embossed background. Really lovely.
