Lighthearted



I really should be catching up on free machine embroidery course work at the moment so to ease my guilt I stitched on a birthday card!!
The Twisted Thursday Challenge was to use this freebie Cheshire Cat digital stamp from Shirley's 2 Girls, an optional sketch was given, which I've sort of stuck to, and the twist was to use stripes - all in all I think I've complied and that this is a quite lighthearted card. I was planning on using the striped paper for a scrapbook page but it just had to go with the cat.

LOVE your card! What a clever way to deal with "guilt"! LOL I usually find something that "needs" cleaning when I should be doing something else! Thanks for joining us at S2G this week!
