Goth Girl - What's A Goth?

I found a new challenge this week called Poisoned Peas, and their challenge theme this time around is Goth/Emo. Now I'm not entirely sure what one of them is, but when I asked the brains of the family he said lots of black & dah... use your Goth Girl stamp by Sugar Nellie, (ain't he clever!)

... so that's what I did! With basic grey paper, PB sentiment and a ribbon.

Made Especially For You - Lovely sketch
Poisoned Peas - Goth

My other two bits of news today are that I visited the new craft shop in Oldmeldrum called The Bee's Knees. That was fun, lots of lovely goodies a great coffee shop and an interesting demo off Erica Gunter of Snappy Crafts. I will be back there soon, (& often!)

Also, Tommy-Cat is ok. He was at the vet on Thurs after not being able to walk properly. On Fri he had an X-Ray and they decided he had tendon damage in his right ankle area. He was in a foul mood last night when we got him back home, he's an outside cat and despite clearly being under the influence of anesthetic gas he was determined to get outside. This he did under supervision in the latter part of the evening, but when the wailing started up again at 5am I let him out & he was gone! After a very worrying day, and many searches, he pitched up in the early evening, still limping, but much happier. He is now settled on the sofa after giving himself a bath.

Your cat's face is just too funny looking here!! It makes me LOL! Your shopping trip sounds great! I wanna go LOL! How clever that the "Brains" of your family knows that you have a "Goth Girl stamp by Sugar Nellie" I am going to go out on a limb and say this brainy person must be your hubby? I find it fascinating that he knows this. But I do think that it is cool that he does know this.
You made a comment about not knowing what Goth is. In a slight way it can mean anything you want it to mean, because it is a word thrown around in today society to mean different things. Ie: the way one dresses, the music they listen to or lots of black like your husband said. Goth is a type of architect Ie: Gothic Arches, buildings ect...
Emo on the other hand is not really Goth. Emo is short for emotional, which was started by kids calling other kids who dress in black, have different colored hair and looks sad all the time "emo" not that an emotionally disturbed kid has different colors in there hair all the time. There's just a quick fyi.
Thank you for playing at PPP's challenge #4 Goth/Emo!
