So behind on my blogging!  It’s been a busy week.  We started painting our bedroom over the weekend (it’s long overdue) and realized we hadn’t planned ahead enough so all we got done was the closet.  I am a bit disappointed that we didn’t meet our goal but we cleared lots of junk out of the closet and now everything is tidy, easy to find and there is a fresh coat of paint on the walls.  We’ll have to get back at the bedroom this coming weekend (a long weekend in Canada) and I hope it only takes a couple of days (ceilings and trims need painting too – yuck!)

Anyhoo…on to the card.  I made a card and a matching bookmark for a client who wanted something with cats on it.  I used one of my favourite Whipper Snapper stamps (it’s hard to pick a fave) and here’s what I came up with:

The colours aren’t quite as lively in real life but it was a very cheerful card for sure!  The flowers are dusted in doodlebug glitter and I used a fat, velvet bow as an embellishment.  The layout is cased.  Don’t forget to take a peek at the bookmark:

The tassel is hanging behind the bookmark so you can’t see it but I used a cute little Jesse James cat button to secure the knot.  Fun!

In other news, I have a cold – again!  That’s the second one this year plus I had bronchitis in December so I think I’ve had my fair share for a while.  Hopefully, I’ll be back tomorrow with another post as I still have a few projects to blog.
