And there was George Clooney ......

..... sat in a corner drinking coffee with Brad Pitt!  I mean how lucky can a girl get in one day.  What?  Don't poke me, I'm not dreaming, it was real I tell you, real !!  Well it was real enough, until I woke up to a little wet nose pressed to my cheek asking for breakfast (and no, that wasn't George sadly).

Right, for the few loyal, regular, followers that do visit, let me get on with my cards for today:




Ingredients for this card are:
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Backing papers:  White cardstock stamped with Hero Arts Small Stitched Snowflake and
Hero Arts Cling dotty background - Bahama Blue Memento Ink
Matting Card:  White cardstock edged with Sky Blue ProMarker
Extras:  Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch



Stamped Image:  Inkadinkado 6710.N
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Corners: Lili of the Valley - Stamp I Corners Delicate

Can I just say that the best chicken is a roast one?

Hugs, Sxx
Going to crawl back under my rock now.

re - catnip

we have a patch of it in the garden, must scan in some photo's of kitty antics in the garden for you to see ! Troubleis the patch is just outside the studio window so in summer you spend to much time watching 4 tripped out kittys love the nip patch lol.

Lovely cards Squirrel - especially that dignified looking cockrel! I'm wondering whether the little wet nose belonged to Mr Toad or Vince! Vx

You have to tell Toad to dry his nose first thing in the morning...lol...

Mags said...

George Clooney AND Brad Pitt??! Wowser!!!

Ahem! What elegant cards, both so simple and pretty. You're absolutely right about the best chicken is a roast chicken! The only problem there being the washing-up afterwards....

Net said...

Sorry to hear Toad woke you up with a wet nose Squirrel....

Fabby cards as always.

Rufus said...

Cute cards! I think I've got that chicken, will have to look, although I doubt mine would look as good. I didn't know that Toad had a wet nose? Maybe he was jealous? LOL One of "the few loyal, regular, followers that do visit",

Bernie said...

Oh Squirrel you do make me smile. I haven't been by for a bit so did a lot of catching up just now. I cleaned up before they demolished and remolded my kitchen. Love your Furrari team member Vincenzo Spaghetti, SO cute. Wish you’d share your cards for the fair. I’m doing three this year and could use a few ideas.
Having said all that I must say I LOVE all your cards. You are so creative.
Blessings Bernie
