Cool Cats and Jelly Beans

Welcome

No, this is not a scheduled post - after waiting all day yesterday for surgery I was dropped off the list as two paitents before me took longer than expected... now the wait for a re-booking begins. 
All very character building.

This was a commissioned card, and I had fun playing with the Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Cat set to make it. The set was an unexpected RAK from Shelly  (of My Creative Rumblings), and came with the thinlet dies too - a real bonus.


The jelly beans came from a set of stamps that arrived  with a magazine recently, as was the sentiment.
After stamping and colouring the image, I coated it with Glossy Accents


I also used Glossy Accents on the cats eyes.  The cats were coloured with chalks.


The sentiment was silver embossed before I dry embossed the base layer of card stock - shhh, don't tell but I debossed it instead of embossing.


The numer was die cut using a Couture Creations die and silver glitter card.


I stamped this fellow inside the card to add interest.

Cute card! Oh my...I get so nervous when I have to have a procedure, etc. I hate when I have to wait even longer...(I'm usually so anxious to just get it over with) Hope all goes okay for you.

Your fun and schparkly card is perfect for a 7-year-old, Maxine! Those jelly beans and glossy eyeballs are going to be a big hit!!

I'm so sorry your surgery had to be postponed. I do love your attitude and your "character building" comment. I'm going to try and use that to calm myself whenever I'm, ahem, flustruated! I hope they can reschedule you before too long and everything goes smoothly!! Lots of hugs, Darnell

Such a fun card Maxine and I think glossying up the accents looks so good. Hope you don't have to wait too long for the surgery to be rebooked but that's hard on a person because you get yourself all psyched up and then nothing....

This is fun maxine. I have TH crazy birds, and although you are a bit limited with what you can do with them, they are fun to use, but I think I like your cats better. The jelly beans look inviting too. Kate x

Best of luck with your new surgery schedule, that you get in as soon as you wish to! This is one cute card, and perfect for a 7 yr old. The jelly beans are really shiny, and I like the quilted look of the background. Those funky, crazy cats are just too cute for words. And how generous of Shelly to be so kind & caring. Take care, TFS & Hugs too. God Bless.

Neet said...

Sorry about the cancellation of your surgery - nothing worse than getting worried about an impending operation and then knowing you have to go through it all again. Hope it arrives soon.
Love the card - you know I love those cats but the jelly beans are something else. Perfect! And even better with the glossy finish. Brilliant card!
Blessings, Neet xx
