Card for an MSE friend

I've not blogged for so long I've almost forgotten how! and I've got quite a few cards I'd like to share with you, hopefully over the next few days if I get a bit of time to myself.

I made this for one of my lovely friends, Susan, who I 'met' on the MSE card making thread. She had received some very distressing news and I wanted her to know that she was, and still is, in my thoughts even though she has priorities other than card making just at the moment.

I scanned the image from a calendar because I loved it, I thought the cat looked very relaxed and calming .........and pink!. As the background was already coloured I used white card to make the scalloped border and used Pink Petticoat papers, plain, gingham & dotty punched with an MS border punch. A simple Craftwork ready made sentiment was the only other thing I needed to add.

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

Thank you for visiting

  5. Had to search around a bit to find the posting for the Heart Song challenge because the link you left us took me to a later posting. Still, it was worth the search. :-) That kitten image and the pink colors are marvelous. Love the gingham check and the polka dot papers! Thanks so much for entering at Heart Song this week. Hope to see you again.
