I also mentioned a get well card I made (to order), here it is. This one I am soooooo pleased with.Once again it features the gorgeous Alfie, this picture was taken just after hed had a holiday at the vets, so it was perfect for a get well card. This was for my Mum's cousin who lives in South Africa, she has five cats!!! I love the fact that one of my cards is now making its way to the other side of the world. I used the K & Company roam papers like I used for Big Bro's other card.

But somewhere in the design I had to include a torn edge!!!! I love clean straight lines and can often be heard saying "O no its gone all wonkey!" and getting myself in a tizz when Im creating. But actually I found it quite freeing and will definitly be including some torn edges in my future cards and collages.
Enough jacking heres the card.
I was kind of cheep making this one, Im blushing just typing it, but....
The white card and purple paper (around the photo and across the card) are from WH Smith, own range.
The Stripped paper is Lilac Boutique Stripe from Doodlebug Design,
The blue stripe across the page are from Kit 'N Kraft from the summer collection, The lettering (I think) is from Papermania - I dont have any more info as I have thrown away the packaging for it and had to look them up online.
The gems are definitley Papermania.
Finally the image in the centre is not available in any shop, its a photo of my beloved cat Alfie, which I took myself.
I hope he enjoys recieving it as much as I enjoyed making it. I look forward to completing my next blogger challenge, there are so many great ones to try.

A tradition get well card, made in 'boy colours' as specially requested by the folks. A chocolate and marshmallow inspired card for my very best friends birthday. And finally another special birthday card for a another very special friend. He only had 1 like this!
OK plans for the future include:
1. Many Birthday cards
2. Many many Christmas cards
3. Planning what I could make people for christmas presents (starting early I know, but these things take time)
4. (Hopefully) starting a Jewellery course next month.
So much to do and so little time, but Im excited to get going.
