Bellariffic Friday Card

My computer is acting very weird tonight - very slow and it seems to get stuck and then lets go. Maybe all the rain we've had today has the lines mixed up somewhere. So, this will be a short post.

We drove to Windsor today in the pouring rain to pick up my camera that had to go in for repairs. First though, we stopped at our favorite Chinese buffet for lunch. If you are ever in Windsor, Ontario and in the mood for Chinese I can recommend the Garden Buffet on Walker Road, opposite Cosco. Delicious, reasonably priced and lots of choices - both for us vegetarians and meat-eaters.

This week Stampin' Bella provided us with a sketch. Here's my card made from the sketch.


Love this little kitten stamp. Every card I make with it is sold quickly. This time I stamped it on water colour paper and coloured it with water colour pencils. In the past I coloured the cat grey but this time I decided to make a brown cat. The flower in his tail has blue gem for the centre. I was in Dollarama the other day and they had a huge package of large gems, half coloured and half clear gems. I picked up these turquoise ones, plus black, red and purple. I obviously have enough clear gems to last a life time but that's OK. They look great on Christmas cards.
Pretty straight forward card to make. I decided after it was all glued down that I should have stitched around the edge so I used a brown pen and just made dots that look like stitches using my Tim Holtz ruler as a guide. It works! It set it off and that's what I was looking for.
