Monochrome, and the Kitty Saga Continues

Good Morning Crafters,

It's Saturday morning so it must be challenge time (although I've now searched for so many challenges that it seems like everyday is challenge day!) This weeks challenge at Less is More is Monochrome a favourite of mine as I always think that black and white make a very stylish card, I've teamed this with the sketch at Simply Stampin' (if you love your Stampin' up! supplies pop over there and check it out).

Don't you just love the texture and deep impression that the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder gives the main black panel?! I have also used some of the gorgeous white organza ribbon, I think this may get over looked in the catalogue, I love it, and you can change the colour with your re-inkers!
I have used a retired SU! stamp called Vintage Labels (which was one of last years SAB sets), I love the frames in this set!

Now some of you may remember that last week my poor little kitty, Salem has a swollen paw. Unfortunately this continued to get worse, even wit a second course of antibiotics. So yesterday he was taken for surgery on his paw. When they shaved it for his op they found several more holes both on the top and bottom of his paw, and had to removed the dead infected tissue, he now has a rather large bandage for a little kitty, several stitched holes and a third course of antibiotics, which fingers crossed will do the trick.

He's desperate to go outside and the other cats in our road keep sitting outside the window, I hope they are wanting him to go out and play not taunting him!

It's back to the vets Monday to check how he's healing and then hopefully stitches out the following Monday, sadly it doesn't look like he'll be able to go out before we move.

Have a fab weekend, xx

I hope your Puss is Boots soon gets better!
Lovely card too... although a lot of the card is covered with layers... don't forget about white space, but that folder embosses beautifully.
Thanks so much.

Thanks for joining in with this weeks Simply Stampin Challenge, love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Hope Salem gets better soon. Our kitty Mister broke his leg in two places, and was caged for 4 weeks. He was almost biting off our hands when it came to coming out of his cage!Seeing Salem sitting in the window with his leg hanging down, is exactly how Mister still sits! x
