Women and Cats shall do as they Please

Deann has chosen the theme of CATS on SPA this week....
 I've used this image from Terri Kahrs... It's one of my favourites and reminds me so much of our old boy cat Austin... 
 Can you see the resemblance?

thanks for looking

The Sweetest Thing

This week the theme on SPA is DOLLS....
I found this image on Pinterest.

I've used a lot of layers on top of a collaged background.

I've used the word 'courage' on here to represent Lily as on Monday 9th July it will be the 3 year anniversary of my beautiful girl dying of cancer. 

have a great Sunday

hey you, yes you

This week, our hostess on Sunday Postcard Art is Anne (cornucopia) she's chosen the theme of Asian.... lovely popular theme.

This is mine
hope it's not too dark, the difference in my phone and the laptop is huge.

I love the facial expression on this young lady and the quote goes so well with it.

 This is my birdhouse from last week, unfortunately I keep forgetting to blog after I've uploaded to Instagram :-( and then the week is gone.

Perfect little Gems

This year (yes i know it's May) I have been doing a monthly swap with a couple of friends of INDEX CARDS. I picked up a folder of index cards from Wilkos for a pound. And as we all know as artists we see things we can make with ordinary things. So a got a few and posted them off to some friends so we could do some swaps.
These two are made by me to keep for me... this months theme is Insects for one swap and mice/rats for the other. 

I love this little size... slightly larger than an ATC but not as big as a postcard... a perfect way to try techniques and products on.
A few week's ago I asked on INSTAGRAM if anyone wanted to trade so I've had a number of fabulous swaps going on. It's so much fun!
