Milly - Me and My Cat!

Hello Everyone and how are you all today, enjoying the warm sunny weather I hope?  It's been really warm here today, a bit windy, great for getting the washing done.

Really enjoyed the craft demo today, it was a Docraft Demonstrator, and she always has some lovely ideas and this time around as you all might know Docrafts have some lovely new products and I especially like the new Christmas range with their fabulous colours and designs. I treated myself to a Goody Bag as I felt everything was really usable.
Apart from this I've not done much.  I have been incredibly tired, almost no sleep last night and this morning I felt as if I had a massive hangover, really horrible.

Anyway, it's a short post today and here is my card;
LOTV Stamp
Prismacolour pencils
Adorable Scorable Card
First Edition papers
XCut border Punch
MB Sonora Rose die
All ribbons from my stash
Pearls from Hobby house
Liquid Pearls and Star Dust
My first ever go with Frantage, don't know what I think, looks good on others folks cards, not too sure about this.

I would like to enter my card into http://ideastoinspire.blogspot.co.uk/p/challenge.html "Pretty in Pink"

That's me for tonight, enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon.
Hugs Kate x

Another fantastic card Kate. Sorry to hear your not sleeping very well either. I'm a terrible sleeper sleeper too, sometimes only getting 4 hours. Take Care and Sweet Dreams for tonight. Hugs Rita xxx

This is lovely Kate. I love the colours you have chosen. Haven't tried the frantage yet but want to have a go -asyou say it looks good on everybody's cards.

Hi Kate.
Hope you sleep better tonight. Horrible having that hung over feeling without at least having enjoyed the alcohol!!!
Pretty card and the background paper is particularly lovely.
I have to confess, I'm not a Frantage fan on anyone's card I'm afraid but wouldn't it be boring if we all liked the same things.
Good luck with the challenge.

Lovely card. I was tempted by the goody bag but bought other items instead. I have major sleep problems which are starting to get me down-not helped by working full time or the fact i'm trying to come to terms with losing my Mum in January this year. Massive shock to the system.
Good job i've got crafting to keep me sane.

Hi Kate,
it's me again. Forgot to say I too have trouble sleeping.I suffer with RLS and spent 25 years with
about 2 to 3 hours a night sleep. Till I was given medication for it. I do sometimes get a longer sleep now. So I can well sympathize with you. It's only crafting at night that kept me sane. Also had to give up work 15 years earlier than I should have because of it.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Good afternoon Kate,
Hope you are feeling a bit better today. I am lucky I can go forever if I get what I call my "Dead Sleep" I go to bed, go into that mode if I get 3 or 4 hours I am fine. If I don`t get that for a few night well everyone beware......!!!

Glad you had a good day at the Demo Day and treated yourself. Crafting is good for the Soul even done in the middle of the night.

Great Card beautifully coloured and the layout is super.
Hugs
