A Wedding Card and a Mucky Boy!

Hello to Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your evening, I'm on my own for a wee while as Alistair is at his little music group and won't be home till late.
Thank you all for your kind comments on my little hearts, I got them wrapped up today and will give them over on Saturday when we all go for coffee and cake.

I have also been trying to finish a card asked for by one of my clients for his niece's wedding, here is what I came up with;
I've used one of the new Die'sire Create a Card Dies and Centura Pearl card, SB Cherry Blossom dies, MB Bow die, Xcut hearts, and I'm not sure what the flourish dies are., Pearls from Hobby House. Hunkydory sentiment. Made the box myself Yeah!!
I hope it will do, I struggled with this one, don't know why, My client couldn't give me much to go one, except it was a same sex wedding and his niece was very girlie. I have to say, these dies by Die'sire are absolutely beautiful and cut out well.

I thought you might like to see a couple of photos of my very dirty cat,

He came in this morning with two very dirty front paws and a nose that looked like he had snucked up all the soil in the garden. Picture doesn't show it too well. He was having none of me cleaning him though. No explanation from him, but later I found a wee mouse in the front garden, so I think he has been under the shed or something chasing his prey. Thankfully he didn't bring it indoors, I freak at things like that.  This is the first time he has brought anything home, cats will be cats.

Well back to work tomorrow, I've had a lovely holiday off, manged to get the bedroom cleared, had to be brutal though, but glad it done.  Strange to think this will be my last ever holiday from work.

I hope you are all well, but sending out positive thoughts for anyone not too well for a quick recovery.

See you soon and thank you for your visit,

Kate, your card is beautiful, I love my Die'sire dies. Gillian and Alice's wedding invites have those make of dies in the centre. I cheat and buy my boxes, so well done you for making yours. Now cats will be cats and he is so cute he can get away with things. At least he didn't bring the mouse in and alive, our cat even brought a rabbit in once. Good luck for the farewells on Saturday and the tears when you hand over your little gifts. Hazel x

Hi Kate, love those heart dies too, just perfect for the occasion. Great box too.
Our dog always comes in with mucky paws and rushes straight past the towel, luckily I have a carpet shampooer!

Have a super evening, hugs Erika.
