Kitty Crafting...

...I have a rather special card for you today... oh yesh, my little AlfieCat has been rummaging in the Room of Stash and made a birthday card for his Dad... I meant to show you this earlier in the week but you know what it is like, one day it is Monday, the next thing you know it is Friday already!    Alf told me he wanted to use a birdy stamp because he loves birdies... he loves to sit and watch them and he chatters away to them but thankfully he is far more partial to the odd mouse or shrew.. or three!



I helped him out by holding the new Gothic Layering Stencil from Tim... he blended a pawful of Frayed Burlap through the stencil and then did a bit of stamping over the top... Jet Black Archival for the eggshell speckles, birdy and fig.1 stamp and then Tumbled Glass for the egg itself (I love that egg sooo much!)   The letters are Alphaparts and you might have noticed that one of the D's isn't actually a D.. it is an upside down P as we have run out of D's, works tho, right?   The strap is a Grungepaper strip, coloured with Vintage Photo and he added a little Idea-ology buckle to it... Yes, I am as mad as my cat... but it is fun here lol


Please do check back tomorrow... there be a brand new Compendium Challenge launching at 7am GMT... which means you have a few hours left now to join in with the current challenge -= all the deets are HERE on Linda's blog.    Thanks for looking, have a grand day!  TTFN

Wish I was as clever as Alfiecat. Lovely simple card, he's made. Guess his dad will be thrilled.

Wow,can Alfiecat come and give my ragdoll cat a lesson in stencilling? She is good at 'rearranging' all my arty bits but that's about the extent of her expertise :)

Great weekend

Hugs

What a talented cat, hope the ink comes of his paws more easily than it does off hands! Fabulous card, the leather fastener and buckle are gorgeous, so realistic. Wonderful Alfie! Ruth x

Alfie needs to meet Frankie and teach her a thing or two. Last night havoc on the craft table or should I say onto floor as Frankie tried to catch the roaming moth. Phew no upside down ink pads on carpet! Nikki x

Well, all I can say is that Alfie did a brilliant job and not a hint of a paw print anywhere - well done Alfie, your card is fabulous! Hugs, Anne xx

Blimey Hels, Alfie cat can sure give you a run for your money...all that time hanging out in the craft room has certainly rubbed off :) Wish our hens, Bella and Cara, had this talent, I've always got to make a card for them and pretend they made it...sorry I was time challenged again this week and nothing for SS (hangs head in shame), hugs Carole Z X
