Egads it is

Hello.  Welcome.  The delightful Darnell thinks we should bring back Egads!!  I am agreeable to this.  Darnell also wants to see twofers involving Pets.  And our pets that inspire our pet creations.   Well, the cat is out for the evening, so I will have to add her at a later date.  But here's a catty twofer

Yes, it's my favourite cat from Rubber Dance stealing the show again and joining the fun at the Twofer Challenge #4

And The Cat is in the house........

Meet Puddy.  Too busy to pose nice for the camera!!

For the first card I embossed Curious Cat on a scrap of purple card, fussy cut and added some white gel pen highlights. Purple card base and a scrap of designer paper cut with a double stitch die.  The hearts are the reverse of the patterned paper.  I stamped and embossed the Rubber Dance sentiment onto vellum.  

Second card.  Black card base.  Curious Cat stamped, embossed, fussy cut and coloured with Wild Honey and Hickory Smoke distress inks.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on a piece of the same card and embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder.  Then I added some chevrons.

I made the chevrons by putting some double sided tape on a piece of card and adding gold foil.  Then I die cut it with Sizzix Chevron on the edge die.  Was worried my foil might stick to the die, but it cut beautifully.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget, if you are shopping at Rubber Dance you can get free worldwide shipping with my code GTFreeShip when you spend over €15! Hugz

  5. What gorgeous cards, and helloooooo Puddy! Nice bunny Hop badge, Jo x

  6. Just noticed the sentiment on your purple cat card - brilliant! I miss-read it at first, Jo x

  7. That's an amazing cat stamp! I love all the detail, and how it lends itself to two different looks. The purple card's sentiment is absolutely true from a cat's standpoint, and I had a good chuckle at that! Those gold chevrons look amazing, too. Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev
