Furry Friends

Hi Everyone
Can't believe we are now into the last week of January.  How time flies lol.  Hope you all have a good week.  I am at work all week but got next weekend off so looking forward to that.

I had a good clear out of my craft room at Christmas and came across so many stamps, dies etc that I have never used.  I therefore decided that if I get any new stash it is going to be used before I put it away.  With that in mind today's card share is made with a free embossing folder and stamp set that I got with the latest editiion of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.  

I used just the stamps from the set for this card.  I made the background by stamping the little fish and paw stamps with various colours of distress ink.  Some faux stitching was also added around the edge.  I stamped the sentiment and the cats onto white card and cut out using a scalloped circle die from Tonic.  The backing card is kraft card that has been darkened with a bit of distress ink.  Some ribbon across the bottom finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I do appreciate all the lovely comments and the support that you give me.
