I do hope we see your creations very soon.  

By the way - we are having a very busy week trawling around catteries - yup we've decided we're going on holiday and don't want to leave three terrors alone in the house - goodness knows what sort of things they'd get up to - orgies, parties, disco's, smoking catnip - oooh you name it!  So we've been out and found a lovely place and the 'rooms' are really big - of course we'd need to have one for each cat 'cos they never sleep in the same room - well they are divas of course.  Having said that, Donny is being left at home because he is so timid and frightened of his own shadow that it would be too stressful for him and our neighbour will take care of him for us.  Just got to sort out our insurance now - that's an hour or three on the 'phone because they need to know 'the in's and out's of Meg's backside' as my old uncle used to say - bless him.  They have to know all about my medical bits and bobs but we don't care as long as we are covered.  I had a week all planned out but we suddenly decided to do this so everything went haywire!  Oh well - just looking forward to that sun and if Scottie can beam me up and transport me without the aid of an aeroplane, I would be more than grateful.  Ooops just remembered - need to go to the Travel Agents now to book the holiday - duh!!!

Take care all of you - I hope you are keeping well and dry.

Hugs to you all.

Love Sue xxx

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Crafty Addicts Challenge No 7 - Anything Goes/Elegance
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge No 156 - Punches and/or Dies


  1. Such a cute card Sue, lovely LO and design and you've coloured that sweet image to perfection!
    How exciting to be going on holiday -somewhere warm and sunny! We tend to holiday in the UK because we take Mathilda with us...have thought of dressing her up and trying to sneak her onto a plane but we think someone might notice...would be nice to get some sun this time of year though!

  2. Awwww...this is so sweet! I have always loved All Dressed Up images. They have a certain feel to them which is so pleasing.
    Of course they way you have coloured your image makes it even more so.

    Gorgeous card as always, Sue. Sorry i have not been by for a visit in so long. I had a lot of health issues last year...some of which have sorted themselves now...touch wood!

    Hopefully I will get by more often this year!

  3. I do love to see butterflies on a card. This looks lovely in those colours. Just been sorting out our air flights this week and the prices have shot through the roof. Nearly had a heart attack when I saw how much but if you want to go then you have to pay!!! Blooger is having right fun and games at the moment. It un followed me from 8 blogs over night and lost me 5 followers! I se your no longer following me but would love it if you'd re follow. Hugs Mrs A. (ValeryAnne designs).
