I scheduled this post before my operation so hopefully that went well and this will post properly!
For my birthday Jen and the family bought me some stamps and dies I have been wanting for a while - Cuddly Critters from Simon Says Stamp. I finally got round to stamping and colouring some of these adorable little chubby animals.
I decided to make this cute cat the focus of my card and kept the rest very simple. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to create the background and mounted it on a lilac card base.
The balloons are a cut with a Paper Smooches die and stamped with mini messages from Mama Elephant. I then added glossy accents to them. I was a bit heavy handed with this and they took ages to dry! (Note to self: be a bit more sparing with the glossy accents lol!)
They did turn out quite well though. I used some twine to create strings for the cat to hold. I then sliced around his paw and stuck the tails underneath, so he can hold them tightly.
Hope you like it. TTFN Jude xx
