Hi Everyone,

Well Its Saturday and that means time to play over on Catch The Bug.  This week its a Bingo Challenge.
Ive gone for the Centre Line. So I have Ribbon, 3 Layers and Pearls on my card. 
 I spent ages colouring this image in a while back and just didnt get round to finishing off the card until the last minute. Its been the school holiday here so thats what Im blaming!!! Back to normality next week though!!! 

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Digi Fancy Sunbonnet - Christmas Stuff from Bugaboo Stamps
Coloured with Promarkers.
Sakura Pen for Polka Dots and White Faux Stitching. 
Die Cut - Memory Box
Ribbon Recycled from a Glossy Bopx.
Pearls from stash.
Stardust Stickles.

I also used Stick It. It was brilliant. Ive always been a bit worried about die cuts and gluing them onto my card. I end up in a mess and so does my card usually!!!!  I used it here for the first time and love it!!!!

This post is dedicated to Tilly.
Tilly the kitty passed away yesterday after a short illness. She was my wee sister as she belonged to my folks. She will be missed so much by us all.  Hope shes eating prawns and yoghurt (her fav treats) up in Kitty Heaven xx

Love and Sparkles

Aww this is gorgeous Hazel… she's such a cutie and I love how you've kept the card almost monochrome… the embossing and sparkles look fab…. love the hanging snowflakes! :-)
The 'stick it' looks really good… it's awful applying glue to those intricate dies isn't it… drives me nuts! I had to laugh at the video though.. when he said he finds poking out the bits therapeutic!!! Makes me want to rip my hair out!! :-0
Such a lovely photo of Tilly! she's a real beauty. She was one of the family, so know you will all miss her heaps. It leaves a huge void, but hold onto all the happy memories that you had with her hun.
Hope you can have a relaxing weekend with your boys! ;-)
Hugest of hugs, Sue B xx
