The loss of my little fury Princess

Before I go ahead with my DT posts I just wanted to say and international goodbye to my beautiful Princess, she was our adorable long haired cat aged 6yrs. Unfortunately we had to make the decision yesterday to have her put down as she was having mental problems which we could no longer treat, it was one of the hardest decisions my husband and I have ever had to make but we know we made the right decision.

We are missing her ever moment of everyday but thankfully we still have our beautiful 14 year old male cat Checkers, and he is part of the reason we had to make the decision that we did due to his diabeties. This is our beautiful Princess

RIP beautiful girl, remember you where loved unconditionally and we will miss you every day for the rest of our lives.
Miss you so much already and it's only been 1 day.
Love your mum and dad

Love is in the Air is the new challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenges

So it's that time of the week again and that is time for a new challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenges and it's "Love is in the Air", I guess this is really appropriate considering it's not long know until Valentines Day.

I wonder how you will all be celebrating, my husband and I don't celebrate as we celebrated our Wedding Anniversary yesterday so there isn't any point to it for us.

I loved seeing everyones creations last week and it was amazing there was over 300 entries which is amazing but a "Anything Goes" challenges always brings lots of entries.

So onto my card for this challenge using "Hugs and Kisses" from

who is also our sponsor this week. I was going to use "Queen of Hearts" as I'd requested but I've been so busy at work and already had this stamp so I coloured her instead but certainly look forward to using "Queen of Hearts" in the near future.

So this is my card


I've used very unusual colours for this one but I think I think they ended up working well together.

The Products I've used are

Bazzill cs
Ribbon Girl UK, Fancy Pants & Maya Road pins
WOC & I Am Roses flowers
Spellbinder dies
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Basic Grey alpha
Resin flower heart

The Copics I've used are

So make sure you all come over and enjoy all the fun, you've got to be in it to win it and who doesn't want to win Saturated Canary stamps.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges
Pink Gem Challenge - Hearts/Valentine
By The Cute & Girly - Roses are Red
Allsorts Challenge - Lets get Cute
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing what you all come up with, I'm sure they will be fantastic as always.

It's a Love thing over at A & T Emerald Faeries

Well I'll have to make this post short and sweet, it's running late as per usual but this time it's because I've been quiet sick over the weekend and haven't spend very much time doing anything especially being on the internet. So this week over at A & T Emerald Faeries challenge blog we have a "love" challenge, everyone is gearing up for Valentines Day.

We don't celebrate Valentines Day in our house as we were married on the 10th February so there isn't much point, and it could get very expensive buying gifts for each other with it being only 4 days apart. For everyone who does celebrate I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Days what ever you are doing and with whom you are spending it with.

So onto my card, this week I've done a step card for something a little different and I also wanted to use one of my new dies.

I had a lot of fun making this card as I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and was very happy with the result, something a little different.
Unfortunately I'm unable to upload the copics I've used on this creation as it looks like I must have forgotton to take a photo of them, sorry but I've mainly used the R's and RV's for the clothes and E's for the skin and hair.
