A Passion for Stamps DT card meets Stamp Something Challenge - Favourite Embellishment

Evening folks!

I'm afraid I won't be on here long tonight - just about to go to bed! I left work a little bit early this afternoon because I had a headache and felt achy......... now I'm really shivery and burning up at the same time......... oh dear, no piggy jokes please, could it be the lurgy?! Two students have been sent home from college this week with Swine Flu so it's certainly possible I could have picked it up!

Anyway, I hope you'll forgive me for not going into detail about my card tonight - I just wanted to let you see this gorgeous image as soon as possible. It's 'Kitten at Wall' available now at A Passion for Stamps and I think you'll agree there sits one very cuddly moggy! I'm entering the card into this week's Stamp Something Challenge, make something with your fave embellishment........ well that always has to be flowers for me so that's what I did!

Here's an extra photo to show the paper bag gift holder I decorated to match the card - I bought these in a bargain shop, 99p for 10 and they're so easy to embellish.

I'll hopefully be back in the morning to add some details of the materials I've used, but that pillow is calling me just now. If I'm not back this weekend you'll know why, EEEKKK!

Have a great weekend everyone!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxxx

HI Tara! Sorry to hear you're feeling unwell, but lets hope you'll get a good nights sleep and feel a bit better tomorrow! Fingers crossed you haven't caught the dreaded lurgy alias Swine Flu. Your card is just adorable, and this little stamp is such a sweetie (I'm a really softie when it comes to kitties). Good choice on your fave embellishment! Thanks for joining in with us at Stamp Something this week. Hope you get well soon :)

Hope you are feeling a bit better today. I've had the dreaded piggy flu already and weirdly, didn't think it was as bad as normal flu! Take care of yourself ~♥~

HI Tara,This card is sitting in front of me as I type and it's soo gorgeous in real life!! I love how you've coloured my little kitten and I really love the paw prints in the flower centres. What a great idea to stamp the little images along the ribbon.
I'm sorry you're not too well and I hope it passes soon and you have a good weekend. Ruth xx
