Pretty kitty



I do love this little cat :o) This one's for an order - for something girly with a cat, so hopefully this will be ok. The image is from Di's Digi Downloads and it's available here. I've coloured it with promarkers, and used nestie circles to cut it out and blossom nesties to mount it. Papers are from the K&Co small wonders girl pad by Brenda Walton - I've got the boy pad too and I love them, they're such lovely colours. Cardstock is coredinations, butterfly cut with the MS monarch butterfly punch, with added pearls. The sentiment is computer generated.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I managed to get an anniversary card made for my hubby, but I'm saving it for a DT in a few days - he liked it anyway :o) Ooooh just realised I haven't blogged about my trauma on Friday lol (which was our anniversary)! I popped out for an hour to take the kids to see my Grandma, and on the way back, on the busy dual carriageway not far away from home, stopped at a traffic light and the car died on me and refused to start again! Aagh! Cars all around me, and I'm stuck there with no idea what to do! Luckily a lovely man in the car behind me and another from a nearby garden, offered to push the car out of the way, then the police turned up and I had a police escort too lol. Being me, I didn't have the RAC details on me and my phone battery was dying too, so I had to get hubby to come and rescue us, and we called the RAC when he got there. When RAC man got there, he pointed out that the car probably would have re-started if I'd taken it out of drive (it's an automatic), which was slightly embarrassing! To be fair though, the police tried to restart it and so did hubby, and they didn't think to put it in park either! He did change a part though that he said caused it to cut out in the first place. I was sort of hoping it'd be something serious so I'd have an excuse to get a new car lol - I've had it for about 9 years and it was already a couple of years old when I got it. RAC man helpfully said that it was in excellent condition inside and should last a good few years yet... grr!

Anyway, I'm off to wade through a few more of my orders. Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday!

    As for your trauma how awful, at least the mens helped you i broke down once and all they did was beep at me!! as for autos my hubby bought a car and got it home and couldnt start it again he phoned where he had just bought it from going mad, and the man said have you tried putting it in park!!! He was mortified, so its not just women!! lol!

  6. Lisa, absolutely goregous image...the coloring is beautiful! Such a darling take on the sketch for SSW! Your experience reminded me of a time I locked myself out of my car twice. I was at my husbands office. At the time, the police would come and unlock the doors for you...they don't do that now. The first time I did it my husband called and said "My wife locked the keys in the car, will you come and help.." A week later when I did the same thing, he called and said, "some lady locked her keys in the car. He didn't want to admit it was me again. The good thing is that I haven't done it since!
