Patience Is A Virtue

I realised last week that I only own one Mo Manning stamp (oh the shame of it) so I quickly dashed off to correct that situation and ordered four more from Stamping Bella.

Here's a little card that I made using Patience - I think this has to be my favourite all time MM image.  The look on that cat's face is priceless.

Painted in Distress Inks (what else these days, lol) and a lot of fiddly cutting out later (why are cats so fuzzy?) I mounted it on some gorgeous Making Memories paper that I've had kicking around for ages.  All the papers are from the same pad.  Martha Stewart border punch for the faux lace, which didn't quite go round the oval, hence the flowers.  That fabulous Hero Arts sentiment and a couple of Card Candi and a few pearls to finish.

Here's a close up of the freshly trimmed image

Hugs, Sxx

OMGoodness that was a lot of fussy cutting but so well worth it. I don't like when people leave a white edge around their image, this looks fantastic as does the entire card. Love your papers, frame and lovely flowers.
Blessings Bernie
