From Penny Black - 2002. I've not really used this stamp much in the past. I'm pleased with the results with Copics though - nice and bright!

Our dear bramble died at the start of June and our house doesn't feel complete without her. Now that we have moved and got holidays out of the way we have decided to add to our family - hopefully by 2 (cats!!).
This little lady is the first of our new cats - she was a stray and is two years old. She's gorgeous! Her name is "Kismet" - how lovely to mean Destiny or Fate. I don't think we will change it but we might call her Kizzy for short.
She's just settling into her new home at the moment and finding her way about. She has a very loud meow! so I'm guessing she will be the boss!
Second attempt! Used the cuttlebug for embossing and also to cut the sizzlits and nestabilities. Added bling with some jewels and some stickles. The backing paper is from the new Forever Friends Christmas Snow pack. She is coloured with watercolour pencils.

This is my first card for ages - even with being away on holiday last week!
I think "Simple Pleasures" works as a name for this one very well! I've used paper piecing on this on for the bubbles and bath tub. The colouring is done using Copic Ciao markers. The flowers are Prima Esprit and the scalloped edge is done using a Fiskars "Threading Water" punch. The papers are from a pack of Blue and Raspberry by Deja Views.

On a non-crafty note - I've made a cheesecake this afternoon! A first for me!
