Cupboard Love And A Hanglar Card

It just goes to show that you cannot turn your back for two seconds on a nosey cat .......

I'd been in the cupboard to get out a couple of boxes of stamps.  On attempting to put one away, I encountered something warm and furry that really does not belong there!  Little devil, but I had to laugh at him.

I haven't played at Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar for a while - not because I don't want to but because I simply don't have enough hours in my days right now.  But, at the sacrifice of some of my more regular challenges, I could not resist having a go with Jane's brilliant sketch this week.

And here is my card - it's a fairly literal translation of the sketch

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image:  Hanglar & Stanglar Sitting Ladybugs Girl
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers:  Doodlebug, Basic Grey, Wild Rose Studio
Punch:  Martha Stewart butterfly
Extras: Gold border peel-offs

Thanks for coming over for a peek.  And, once again, I am sorry if I haven't visited you lately.  I am trying to keep up with you all but you are just too darned productive!

Hugs, Sxx

Any cat will tell you it's not nosiness... it's that every space he's not in deserves to be blessed with his presence. hee hee

I think i'm seeing spots Lol, I love spots and I love your creation Squirrel.

My cat sneaks into the cupoard under my craft desk, but if I knock the door it startles her and she dives out dragging everything with her.

Happy crafting

What a lovely cheerful card Squirrel. I love that sweet image and I love using spotty DP too.

Isn't that just like a cat. They're so funny! We used to have a really big fat cat who loved chasing birds. Her favourite place was the very top of the roof of one of the pig sheds when we had the farm. Sadly she is no longer with us and we have no cats at all now.

Adorable kitty! Closed one of ours in a cupboard and left for the day. Needless to say she was not happy when we got home and of course it was all our fault she had hidden in there in the first place.
Fabulous card!
Blessings Bernie

He's a sneaky devil isn't he? Please do give him a good ear scruffle for me! He's so cute, but you probably shouldn't tell him I said so, or let him read it over your shoulder!

Fabulous card Squirrel!
Love the photos of Vince! They are so nosey! Bozzy likes to try and get under the bed and he's also fascinated with the new oven as he can see his reflection in the door. I've not yet worked out if he knows it's him of if he thinks that there's another cat living in it!!
