Return of the Squirrel !!

I'm back!  Flippin' technology eh?!  Morning all.  Not the nicest of mornings weather wise so I hope you are all ok.

We had a fab Friday off work and spent the day in Norwich doing some Christmas shopping.  Well, we got one present anyway, but it was an absolutely brilliant day, until I had to run for the train home.  Most of you know about my arthritis so running for trains is not on my agenda normally and this morning I am suffering for it.  Anyone got a spare Zimmer frame?

I have a hairy little helper today - Vince has decided to be the world's stickiest cat and is glued to me, he has even been to the smallest room in the house (a girl has no dignity).  I know what he is after though - he wants me to sit down in his favourite armchair so he can have a cuddle, but I am sorry to disappoint him for now.  Which means I have to put up with a furry, miaowy, shadow!  He is sat on the desk now, with a sad face on.

Anyhoo, enough rambles, I have a card for you at last!

So what have I used for this one?
The stamped image is Whimsy/Wee Stamps - Amy
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sorry, forgot to list the colours - told you it would take a while to get into the habit
Paper is from LOTV/Nitwits Bonnets & Bowties pad
Memory Box Spring Border inked in with ProMarkers
Sentiment is from LOTV
and finally black matting card is from stash

So that's it for now.   The postman has just delivered me a parcel of delicious loveliness from Bunny Zoe's so I am off downstairs to ooh and ahh for a little while!

Hugs, Sxx

Hehe my cats are the same, there's cat hairs of various colours all over my craft desk because they all like to sit there lol, there's a radiator behind it so it's always warm :P Silly kitties!

Your card is gorgeous, I love the colours and that die goes perfectly with the paper :)

Gorgeous card, what a wee sweetie. I can't resist LOTV. I'm scared to visit their website cos I usually buy too much! Stamps always bad enough but now they've got all that yummy paper. Oh dear!!

What a pretty card, Squirrel. Little Amy is coloured beautifully, and that paper is sooooo yummy.

You think you've got pussycat problems...one of my 'boys', Pally, (photo in my sidebar - all 6.5 kgs of him) not only always visits the tiniest room when I am in there, but insists that is the best time to sit on my lap!!!! P.l.e.a.s.e...

No cats here, I am allergic - but I still have a furry shadow in the shape of our adorable Westie Roo.
Great card my friend.

Fabulous card Squirrel. Love the image and pretty colours. One of my cats is just like that, can't sit down for 5 seconds without the lump landing on you. Lovely and warn on a cold day though. Enjoy the goodies in your package.
