Animal Companions at Corrosive Challenges

Hi folks
Back again to tell you about the new challenge starting over at Corrosive Challenges.
Our theme for this challenge is

Animal Companions

Simply include an animal image on your creation.
Our sponsor for September is the wonderful Delicious Doodles who are offering our winner 4 digis of their choice.

I decided to do something a little different with this card and include an actual photo.  Our youngest daughter is at University and she really misses one of our cats while she is away.  This cat always sleeps with Gayle when she is home.  So I decided to make her a card to take back with her to Manchester.  She can stand it on her bedside table.


I made it quite girly in the colours and papers used.  Lots of pink and pearls and a fab parchement butterfly that my Mum made me.  Misha, the cat, looks like butter wouldn't melt in this photo but she can be quite a little madam when she wants to be.

Looking forward to seeing all your fabulous entries.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Emblies - Picture Perfect
Kaboodle Doodles - Flowers
Papertake - Things that make you go awww
Forever Friends - Ribbon
Joanna Sheen - So sweet

Thanks again for popping by.
