Cats In The Moonlight

Hello there,

I hope that you're all enjoying the Bank Holiday here in the UK.  Although we were supposed to be having thunderstorms here, it's been fine all day.  I was up with the lark this morning and straight into the garden.  The lawns could actually do with a little rain but I'm loving this fine weather.  I think it's because we had to wait so long for it to arrive.

Blog land seems to be very quiet at the moment and I'm suspecting that may also have something to do with the weather.  I know that this GDPR thing as been a nightmare for most of us too and I've read on a couple of blogs that people are thinking of giving it all up, which would be so sad.  It's such a shame when all we want to do is to share what we've made with like minded people.  Enough of that now though and onto cards, here's one that I'd like to share with you:


The last time I was over at Inkylicious dropping off some samples, Deby gave me a couple of new stamps that they've made to try out.  The cats are a larger version of some that I've used previously but the difference with these is that they are both separate from the branch, with I think is a great Idea as you can then use them in different settings and independently, so far more scope.    The second new stamp is the one that I've used around the top of my card, it's pretty isn't it.  I don't think these are on Inkylicious' web site yet but I'm sure it won't be too long before Deby puts them on.

All the stamps that I've used on this card are by Inkylicious, and I've used both the positive and negative brick wall stamps.  I'm very happy with the finished card and I decided that a few gem stones would make the tree a little more magical.

That's all from me today and I thank you for taking the time to visit x

I'd like to add this card into the following challenges:

Penny Black And More - Anything Goes

It would be hanging on a wall, the scene you have created looks really impressive and magical! The sequins on that little tree are just "the cherry on the cake", as we say in Italy!! :D The colours are absolutely amazing and the whole paint looks so real with the shadows of the cats on the wall! I could stay hours here looking at it! :) Thanks for sharing
It's a shame that Inkylicious doesn't ship outside the UK, their stamps are fabulous.

A little hi from me Sandra tonight... sorry for the absence from your lovely blog, for long maybe (too long!). Not because of the weather, but just because I continue to be over busy, trying to gain some students locally and develop my courses around my space. But well, it's just so hard some days to be known and go on :(
I absolutely adore this card. Wow, the scene is so magical and well done!! Really mastered (that's what I don't always succeed in doing haha. I need time to create beautiful scenic stamping, though I love that as you know! :)
Hugs,
Coco xx
PS: I adore also all your last cards for CI!!!!!

I adore those cats Sandra and the night sky colours are wonderful, together with that brick wall and the super shadow you have given the cats, also the new Inkylicious foliage and the gems on the tree finish it perfectly. x

Thankfully the thunder wasn't too ad in our neck of the woods, so I was extremely Pleased!! The ground certainly needs a drop or two but as you so rightly say we waited waaaay too long for some good weather!! Another fabulous card, a fabulous composition, lovely colours and I love how you have added cat shadows...brilliant xx

Love the colours you used for this striking card.

I love this - it looks simple, but that's the skill in the making of it - it's far from simple. So many elements, all coming together so beautifully. Lovely.

A lot of people are having problems posting but yes, I suspect the weather has a lot to do with people being quiet. I'm not getting blogger notifications and I know a lot of people who approve theirs aren't getting the emails either... there's absolutely no need for a privacy declaration if the blog isn't monetised, from what I've read - not sure why that would distress as many people as it has done...there again, people's privacy is sacrosanct, I'm sure we'd all agree.
