Tom and Jerry ;-)

You remember my farm animal card I made a couple of weeks ago? Well this cute stamp and the sentiment was also in the fabulous McSplendid Farm set by The Greeting Farm. Silly Monkey Crafts have a great range of these stamps including the very cute Anya and Ian. The bright paper is by Cherry Arte and is called Bold Spots. While colouring this image I couldn't help but think of Tom and Jerry hence the colours I have chosen to colour them ;-) For more details of the products used please see below.


I would like to thank sweet Jodi for the above award which she awarded me yesterday.

Before I go I just wanted to let you know that this month my Pink Cat DT buddy Vicki is our hostess for the DT challenge on Paper Craft Planet. I hope you will play along!!
