Cats for my Brother

Made this card for my brother and it too AGES!
I wanted to do a cat themed card for my brother as he is mad about cats and doesn't think it's a proper card unless it has a cat on it! The tree is the Clarity naked tree - I've just sold it on Ebay but maybe I should have kept it! The cats are from a Hunkydory set but they don't stamp very well so had about half dozen attempts and even this one has some marks on it. I made my own paw backing paper. I carried on and made the inside too...

Shoes and Handbags!

Well I have a new customer! I actually have her by default as she wanted a friend of mine to make cards for her but she is too busy making cakes which she prefers to do so she passed her list to me. It all helps pay for my crafty habit! This is my first card for her so I hope she likes it..
The shoe and backing paper was from some free papers by Nitwits. The other paper on the smaller layer was from a K and Co pad. The shoes were a template that I think I found on the internet but is a lovely shape. I cut in gold mirri then added the paper on top. You can't see very well in the photo but I have added some glitter to the shoes and the '20' on the greeting. I think the flowers I added are a bit big but I didn't have any smaller pink ones to use. Hope you like it too!
