Hello lovely people,

I have had a lovely weekend with my sister-in-law, her other half and my niece and nephew but am properly exhausted now.  A Saturday night out at a Chaser gig accompanied by a few cheeky glasses (bottles?!) of red wine and a lot of dancing on the tables may have had something to do with that but oh, it was so much fun :-D

Earlier this week it was my other sister-in-law's hubby's birthday and I was running a bit late with making his card so opted for an easy CAS design and here it is...

I fancied a bit of black and white colouring and chose this fab LOTV image from one of the sketch pads, but it is also available as a rubber stamp.  The monochrome colouring proved to be a nice quick option as I didn't have to spend time matching all the colours to my DP!

Card recipe;
Image: Jack, Patch and Puss sketch pad - LOTV (rubber stamp version here)
DP: Flea Market 'treasure' - Crate Paper
Twine: The Ribbon Girl (temporarily closed)
Enamel dots: MME cut & paste flair 'sweet'

Copic colours;
Dog: W2-4 & 5-8
Cat: W00-1 & 1-4
Cake: various W series
Ground: W00-3

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and it's going to be an early night for me tonight so I am fresh for work tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx
