Flying Kitty!!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday and the weather is being kind to you.

We are not doing anything special, we do tend to stay local on bank holidays because of the traffic, we like our days out when places are not as busy, but then that's the beauty of not going to work, our time is our own.

We had a lovely day out in Llandudno on Friday, it was a lovely sunny day, a bit chilly but dry, so we were able to get about and do what we wanted. 

We had a potter about, sat and watched the world go by a bit, had a look round the shops and had a nice lunch too, so all in all, a good day out.

On our way home we were sure glad that we weren't going in the opposite direction and heading for where we'd just been, the traffic was horrendous, bumper to bumper of slow moving traffic for miles and miles and miles, in all the years I've been driving I've never seen anything like it.

 It was just after tea-time and I suppose people were setting out after finishing work for the weekend, guess they were thinking they'd miss the traffic that way, they were so wrong, I felt quite sorry for them actually, it must have taken them hours to get to the coast, hope they'll enjoy it when they do eventually get there!

So onto crafting.....

A little unusual, in that I have used papers from a CD Rom, something that I rarely do, I only usually use an image from a CD as I rarely like the papers, I tend to like to match the image with papers I already have in my stash, I take it as a bit of a challenge to get everything to match, but this time I quite liked the papers that came with it so I thought I'd give it a go, and this is the result.

As usual, challenges and recipe below, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Hi Jacee, we do the same over Bank Holidays - stay at home. Much better to take our trips out when everyone else is working :) Love your card - the cat with wings is fab and the combination of colours is fun. The orange ribbon is gorgeous. Elizabeth xx

We sound like two of a kind Jacee, why trawl around busy places when you can do it another time.

So many great things about thiss project Jacee! The image is fabulous, and using the paper for the background & the matching envelope makes a wonderful set! The holographic CS used for matting yields a super bling effect without making the design cluttered. nicely done! Delighted you are sharing this project & your creativity at Aud Sentiments!

I stayed local as well as we were invited to a 40th birthday party yesterday. Have been quite tired today even though we didn't stay late.
I think this unusual cat image has a great oriental look to it, and you're right, those papers sure match it perfectly! Looking cool!
