Once Upon A Time

Morning all and welcome to another challenge over at Ooh La La.  Today it's the turn of Allison to pick our theme, and she has chosen

Once Upon A Time

By that she means childrens stories and the likes.

Well once upon a time, there was a little girl called Emily, who owned a toy cat called Bagpuss, and upon hearing this verse
Bagpuss, dear Bagpuss
Old Fat Furry Catpuss
Wake up and look at this thing that I bring
Wake up, be bright, be golden and light
Bagpuss, oh hear what I sing

Bagpuss came to life and his adventure began!  Not quite sure what story unfolded that he ended up hanging from a washing line, but I think you get the general idea!

So here is my Bagpuss inspired card!

Ok, so he's not pink, but he is a stripey catpuss!

Papers and image all from the Ooh La La CD - Everyday Occasions, available here.

This is such a cute image and I love your layout and colour combo.
What memories Bagpuss brings back - I started watching that programme almost 40 years ago with my daughter, and she loved that saggy, baggy old cat. Thank you for joining in our Something New challenge at Fab'n Funky.
