Tag and Card

Hi All. I can't believe it is already Friday as this week has flown by. I did manage to fit in a couple of craft challenges yesterday so will show then here today. Thank you as always for popping in and for your kindness and support

At Tag Along this week it is Bees for the challenge

Bubble wrap always reminds me of a honeycombe shape so I used some of that to make the background by using it as a stamp. Then I stamped some of a stamp set by Joanna Sheen which has the flowers and a little bee image as well.

The big Bee is by Cart-us and it is a stamp I love to use whenever possible :)

Now for a card I have made for the challenge at The Craft room where the theme this time is cats

Lots of crafters of all kind seem to have cats and the cats always want to help so I thought this image went very well with the challenge. The digi image was from sliekjestamps where the images are drawn by the blog owner and are free to use if they are for your own personal use. A real haven for cat lovers with lots of cat digis that made me laugh even though I haven't a cat these days-other images as well so do go and have a look.

I used white embossed card for the background and card and paper with a circle made from nesties dies for the topper.

Have a lovely day today and a great weekend everyone
