Dressing Up for a Special Occassion.

Hi everyone. I have some very exciting news to share today as i have been invited to join the Cute Card Thursday design team!

First of all can I say a heartfelt thank you to the ladies on the are such a lovely and friendly group an I am really looking forward to joining the 'cuteness' in future months.

Also, I should mention that Cute Card Thursday was the first challenge that I ever plucked up the courage to enter! I did it via email as I didn't have a blog back then, and I could only dream of being on DTs having samples on TV or being in magazines. Since then I have done all of these from that little seed my crafty ambitions (and crafty spending) just grew and grew!

So - here is my first card for Cute Card Thursday which is all about - Dressing Up.

I thought this little Cowgirl would be perfect for the theme.......yeee aaaa!!!!

She is a Scruffy Little Kitten, and oh what a cutie she is! I have coloured her with my spectrum noir pens and mounted her on gingham.....just because it seemed right. Finally, a bit of good old garden string to add a bit of rustic embellishment.

I look forward to seeing you all over on Cute Card Thursday...can't wait to see all of your crafty makes!

See y'all!!!
