The Early Bird

Good morning,

If you can call it morning, it's before 7am, and I've been up for ages. My kitty is still poorly think we're nearing 3 weeks that he hasn't been well for now. Currently he had an abscess under his chin/mouth which is now open, he has antibiotics and a cone which he HATES! When he is 'coned' he always wants lots of cuddles, which means I haven't had very much sleep for the past 3 nights since the cone went on.
So at the moment I'm trying to type at the timy computer desk while he sleeps across the front of it.

right back to crafting, I have made this card for two challenges the sketch I have followed is from the Paper Players and the colour combo is from CR84FN,



I have chosen Basic grey as my neutral colour (hope that counts) I still had it out on my desk from the previous card I made and I thought it went well with the blues.


I have used Just Believe, for this card. I recieved a thank you card Saturday using the set, which reminded me I had it and I'm sure I've never used it!! How terrible so it has now seen ink! I have added a distressed edge to the circular layer, and embossed the grey layer with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder.

Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend, xx

I'm glad those stamps finally saw the light of day!!! :) those colours look gorgeous! I think this might be my favourite of all your cards so far (well, other than the one you sent me of course :)) it's very elegant and sophisticated-I love it!! :)

I hope your cat gets better soon, you really need to get some sleep else you'll be useless at work tomorrow :)

Beautiful card Kelly. I hope your wee cat gets better soon. Our wee Nimbus got an abcess 3 days before our wedding last September which was all we needed!! Thankfully she got over it quickly enough with a lot of antibiotics and attention! Cats can be so dismissive of us sometimes but as soon as theyre sick they bombard us for attention.....so fickle!

Kerry, I left you a really long comment but my computer acted up so I'm not sure if it went through! Hope this isn't a repeat! Glad you finally inked up that pretty stamp! LOVE the embossing and the gray! Sorry about your kitty with the cone. Neither of my two kitties would do well wih that!!

Kelly, poor kitty.... I do hope he is feeling better. I can understand why he wants some extra cuddles from you!

Love your take on the challenge this week, the colors are beautiful and the Just Believe set looks wonderful in the circular focal point. Beautiful.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and shared this lovely card.
