Let's Celebrate Kindness

Morning all, how are you today?  Hopefully well and wrapped up cosy - don't know about where you are, but it's defo cooler here abouts and soooo wet ... Winter is on it's way!

Another thing that's on it's way is the latest challenge over at Moving Along With The Times, it's set by our boss lady, Hazel, and she's looking for projcts inspired by the theme,

Let's Celebrate Kindness

It's up to you how you interpret this one, but the most obvious way is with a thank you card & I needed one of these a couple of weeks back to give to the vet who sorted out Merlot Mogs.

Now Merlot is a fun lovin, playful adventurous cat and as it's Autumn, I thought this Stampendous Fluffles image would suit him perfectly.


Fluffles himself was double stamped and set on gel to raise him above the leaves.


Papers are LOTV and colouring by Promarker.

Challenges;
Papertake - 2 or 4 legs (and an old sketch of yours too!)
My Time To Craft - Farm Yard Animals - well most farms have a cat... don't they?
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Cats/Kitties
Eureka Stamps - Four legged friends
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes

And for those of you who have been following Merlot and his health issues, well I'm pleased to report he is doing well.  He's back to his normal self again, up to his old tricks and it's just amazing how well he's adapted to loosing his eye.  As I was told at the onset - cats are amazingly resilient creatures!

Hi Janice, this is a beautiful and a fun card really like it. Glad to read your cat is doing well. Our little pets are close to the heart aren't they ?
Winter's in the country here in Belgium aswell, this morning the grass was all white and icy. Nice crafting weather with a hot cup of tea and the fire on. What would one want more ?
Hugs, Veerle xx

It's Fluffles! One of my favourites! I just used Snowboard Fluffles the other day - and I had so much fun looking at my old Fluffles stamps - I hardly ever use them any more but I'm going to rectify that! I have this stamp too - a bit of a Fluffles collection I have! Adorable card!

Janice, this is such a lovely card, and the image is just adorable! I'm very sad to say, however, that it doesn't meet the criteria for our Farmyard Animals (pigs, chickens, sheep, etc)theme at My Time to Craft.

I am so sorry about that, please do join in on our next Challenges!

I hope you have a great weekend and lots of time playing with Merlot :)

love Mags B x
