How to scare the cat...

My husband was sitting on the verandah soaking up the sun with our cat Hamish at his feet, next minute Hamish awoke frightened by some loud noises. He walked up and down the verandah before he came back and settled down on my husbands lap this time. Once again he was woken up, ears twitching and ready to run and hide. My husband patted and stroked him, calming him down and telling him " It's ok Hamie Waymie, it's just mum down stairs having fun with her ladies."

Yes it was me and my lovely bunch of ladies giggling, well maybe we weren't just giggling, I suppose if we disturbed the cat it may have been a bit louder. Anyway it was a great morning and we made 3 very different cards. It was all about shaped cards and this led to a lot of chuckles over misshapen bottles and wonky left feet.

The first card was an apron. We stamped, coloured and fussy cut all the pocket inserts. We used the Crafting Forever stamp set.

The next was the bottle, this is when all the giggles began. Oh dear, how hard can it be to add a layer of textured Brushed Gold card to a bottle so that it follows the line of the bottle!!
The label was punched using our brand new Pretty Label punch.

Thankfully we finally made it to the last card. It was a cute little thong in Daffodil Delight. The new Daisy Delight bundle was used for this one. We stamped the daisy in Daffodil Delight and then sponged the outer edges in Pumpkin Pie. Then stamped on Whisper White and punched out the daisy.

The inside needed something so out came the retired stamp set Day at the Beach for the sun and Sunshine Sayings for the sentiment.

Oh and in case you were wondering what our scardy cat Hamish looks like, here he is.
