Here Be Katz

Hello.  Welcome.  The day has arrived.  The Cat Lovers Hop is live.  I have been finding cat related items in my stash.  More than I realised!!  I may be more of a cat lover than I thought LOL.  So here is my first offering to all you cat lovers and fans


I cut my cat using Go Kreate Purr die from paper I have brayered with paint and added some Kaisercraft stamps.  He's hiding his fangs

I was going to make an ATC but my cat overfloweth.  Idea!  I grabbed my Prima 6 x 8 Free Spirit cards and found one that my cat liked

I smooched black archival on the card, added the cat and a couple of bats cut using Sizzix die, cos we was feeling 'weeny.  It's enough to make you want to journal.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
