A very good crafting hour!

Hello folks!

Well I came home from work this evening and after spending a total of 2 and a half hours in my car travelling to and from work today I decided it was time to put some Brad Paisley on nice and loud and get creative!!

There is a fab challenge over at Stampalot this month...they want to see your crafting cool is that! Some of you might know what my crafting passion is.....I love creating things out of a pile of paper. I love the challenge and find it sooo satisfying. I've made loads of car cards before for Joe and his car nut Dad....but I'll try anything out! Today I was asked to make a card for someone who wanted a leopard on the front....well I certainly haven't got a leopard stamp so I got my papers out and got creative.....

Ha, ha! Its a bit of an evil looking leopard...those eyes are a bit menacing, but I thoroughly enjoyed putting this card together! I've used paper scraps from my stash along with my Promarkers and a white gel pen.

Here is the photo I used as inspiration...

Inspired by this card I also decided to make another Birthday card...and I stayed with the cat theme...but went a little smaller this time....

Now I love this stamp! I've had it a while now, but it never fails to make me smile! I've used some more of those retro papers for this card, along with some shiny dots. The catd are coloured with my Promarkers and the fab layout is a sketch that I found at Passion for Promarkers this week. I'm really pleased with this card!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Cats & Dogs (I went with cats!)

Two great cards Rachel.

The second is so very cute, but it's the first that really jumps out at me and the sheer imagination you have used to create the leopard. It's totally awesome.

Wow! The leopard is amazing! I could never do that, not in a million years! The cat stamp is brilliant - I love the 4th cat's belly button!

Thank you so much, Sweetie, for the beautiful card you sent me. I love the summer colours in it. It's sitting in my kitchen and makes me smile each time I look at it. Sending hugs, Tracey xx
