Andrea's Kitties

We have had a nice relaxing day today and it made a nice change not to be rushing around. I eventually had a little stamping me time :-) Don't get me wrong I love having my girls at home..... but I need to get back into a routine soon.

Well you all know how much I love kitties so could wait to ink up this High Hopes stamp Andrea's Kitties from the newest release... and as my letter beads say.. she is such a cutie! I picked these up recently at Sainsbury's for the bargain price of 29p for 400 letters!!

The papers are a little more muted than I am used to working with but so beautiful. They are from the K&Company Designer pack Classic K Bailey. These little 6x6 pads are a bargain for 36 sheets! I have used pretty blue lace and buttons from the sherbert collection. I am so excited as I have a range of Crochet flowers arriving at Bunny Zoe's Crafts early next week. This beautiful red crochet flower was from a kit I used to purchase. To finish by adding a co-ordinating brad and double daisy spacer.

Going to now continue my lazy day by putting my little one to bed and ordering a dominos pizza washed down with a glass of wine.

Have a great evening!

Hugs,

Your card is beautiful Nikki and I love the new stamp. Love my kids to but will be nice to have a quiet house (lol). Save me some pizza, when I lived in London Pizza delivery was everywhere but we only have 1 chinese that delivers here so I'm just a tad jealous. Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Yes, I have had a couple of lazy days at home! Daughters 6th birthday party tomorrow so I needed to store up some energy. Those letters are a giveaway...must look in my local Sainsburys to see if they have any.
I know what you mean about them being at home. I love being on holiday and having days out with them but I seem to be forever doing them food and drinks or clearing up after they have had food. Lovely cards as always.
