Here Kitty Kitty Kitty!

Hi Folks!

Hope you're having a lovely day?  It's been wonderful here...a tiny bit chilly with the wind, but bright and sunny.  We had a lovely walk in the park with little poochy so all is well.

Today...I've done something without using the Quintessentials cd, lol.  Bet you're surprised!  Instead of made a card for a lovely couple me and Jamie often meet in the orang house at Chester Zoo...other members of the zoo.  And, as we're all animal lovers how could it be of anything but an animal?  So I chose to use Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley-Mayhew Collection (first, I think) and have selected a gorgeous little lion cub.  Awwwww...isn't he cute?

Because it's for a couple I didn't want to make it too manly or too girly...think I've got it just about right here. 

I've used my Cameo to cut this one, using a Penny Duncan cutting file for the base card and layers.  And the circles and flourishes were cut using my cutting dies and Grand Calibur.  Add some little brown buttons and that's it...done! 

Hope you like it?

Take care everyone.
