A little Lavendar, Lace and Gato!






I love purple, and I love frilly, so this weeks Tilda and Friends ATC is Lavender and Lace is a favorite of mine! The DT's this week totally rock, so make sure to head over there and take a look. (After you are done here of course LOL!).



I wanted to use one of the new Summer club stamps, especially since of drove 45 minutes one way to get my EZMount yesterday! But while at the stamp store, I found this adorable window stamps from Art Impressions. Sadly I had to cut off the flowing cutains from the bottom to make it fit on the ATC, but you will be seeing this stamp again!
I stamped out one of my new Tilda's and some clouds in the background. I colored her in with my Copics and stickled her wings. Then I stamped the window on a separate piece of card stock and cut out the window and cut the card down to ATC card size (2.5 X 3.5 inches). I colored with my copics and white gel pen. I then stamped the small flowers on the "wall" with a Rubber Tapestry Stump stamp. I then stamped the window a second time on another piece of card stock and cut just the valance off the window. I then used the smallest Pop Dots and stacked the three layers, and then matted the entire card with a darker purple card stock. I love it! Hope the girls at Tilda and Friends ATC like it to.





Had to share this photograph of Gato I took this morning...... this cat is wearing me out! She is into EVERYTHING, she is climbing EVERYWHERE, she is chewing and clawing ANYTHING she can get her teeth and claws onto. But then I come in to take my photo this morning and she is in my photo tent again, and look at that face - you gotta love her.





Ok, have to scream just a bit here. I got the greatest email yesterday! I am still grinning from ear to ear! Elisabeth Bell, yes the Elisabeth the hugely talented artist with the Sweet Ebony Images left a comment on my little donkey blog, and she posted my DT card from Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog this week on her blog and on her site! I have adored her images and found her blog a few months back and can't even explain how exciting it is to see my card there! Thanks so much Elisabeth! You have made my day, week and month! If you haven't seen her site, take a look it is fabulous - http://www.zhibit.org/elisabethbell/blog


Well it is my MIL day... so I have a couple of minutes to hop to a few blogs and then I have to get dressed and get out of here to hit the mall and the hundreds of other stops that is on our list today! Oh and for those that have asked... Rosie is doing better, the meds really have helped, she has to take a two week dose this time. I just hope that after that she stays healthy this time.


And only one more day to get in on the Blog Candy! I will be drawing tomorrow, so look further down till you find the Blog Candy Post and leave a comment! Have a great Thursday!

HUGS and-

Oh great card Michelle. I love Tilda looking through the window.
Gato looks really cute, don't worry we are having the same problems with Milly, have to watch her like a hawk.
Congratulations on the Sarah Kay card too!!

Allison said...

Terrific scene Michelle....you should do a tutorial for dummies like me on how you did that (love the curtains)!

I am going to post a pic of my evil cat...he is into the garbage all of the time, out moonlighting with other cats and meowing so loud in the middle of the night for water, food, to be let out, etc. Seriously, who runs this house anyway?

So glad to her Rosie is doing better. Cats are like that, just worm their way into your heart! They seem to know when they've pushed you to your limit, and so they do something completely adorable to get back in your good graces!

love those curtains Michelle and that wallpaper is brilliant! She looks so sad peering through the window - has she locked herself out or has Edwin changed the locks?! :)

Saw your card on Elisabeth's blog -it looks brilliant (I know how you feel ;), it's such an honour, isn't it?!!)
