Just a bit of fun

Hi there,
How's your week coming along? 
Mine is going terrifically. 
I did say each new week is full of excitiong possibilities, didn't I? 
Well so far:
  • My new stamps arrived (Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! don't tell my OH. Oh blow! forgot that he was the one that signed for them! haha!)
  • My crazy bird card was a winner at CAS colours and Sketches. Yippee!
  • I had an honourable mention at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Fab!
  • And I am 1 pound off loosing a stone in weight. Incredible really because my OH tries to nobble me with butter, milk, bread, cream, chocolate etc.etc every time he makes a dinner. Thank goodness for syns!
YAY!!! Happy week!
As I'm in such a good mood,  I made a card just for fun. Sometimes we take our card making too seriously, don't we? Well I hope you like this frivolous one (Yes, using the stamps that arrived today)  ;-)
I love this cat's expression.
I'm entering this into:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown February Theme - Baking (hope the Xmas Pud counts!)
One Layer Christmas Card Challenge # 26 - Anything Goes 
To prove it is one layer, here's how I made the border with a ruler and pen (note, only 2 edges have been done here)
Items used:
Stampers Anonymous Crazy Cats stamp
Papermania Silent Night stamp - the Xmas pud
Distress Pens: Antique Linen, Old Paper, Frayed Burlap, Pumice Stone, Lucky Clover, Festive Berries.
Thanks for stopping by,
Sharon xx
