Card from a freebie by Black Pumpkin

Well blog hopping as you do, and I came across this cat!! Seriously, she sat there in the middle of my screen staring at me!! So I took her out of the screen and put her onto a card!!

Every time I look at her I see a different expression, its really weird!!
So Downloaded her from Black Pumpkins site, here and at first thought, looks like the cats got the cream. Then looking in disgust at a plate of Rabbit food, and so on until, I came upon the Cheshire Cat in My Craft Studios A very Important Date. Now I do apologise, but the 2 of them seem made for each other, so I had to go for Valentiney type stuff, all the yewky things, like kissing, and day dreaming, and things no self respecting woman would do about any man, well ok, I do have a weakness for a certain Mr Connery, ok ok and a Mr Cruise, well ok then!!! Loads of them!!!

So into MCS she came, to be with her Paramour, so music, floaty dreamy stuff was called for. Luckily A Very Important Date is a very surreal type of disk, being based on Alice, and I swear that Caterpillar is so stoned he couldnt smoke straight, how did they get away with it back then?
So in the backing papers on Cd one I spotted this floaty background, loads of promise, no substance if you get where I am going with this, all dreamy and romantic, Ideal for the 2 love birds.....

then I thought well no actually I dont want him right there with her like that people could get the wrong impression you know, so off I trotted to the Artists Collection, again by MCS, as I knew that there was some "bubbles" in there, having done a frantic route round 3 of the CD's last night, (waiting for the all clear before I come clean, lol.)
So bubble in hand off I trot back to the 2 love birds, (why cant she see he's Mr Smarmy?), and pop him in to a bubble to stop him getting his wicked way with her!!

Then a sentiment, something suitably sloppy and yewky.............so off I trot, feeling a little happier this time, as I know there wont be any miniature Cheshire cats with Grey fur trotting around inside my screen by the time I get back, into More than Just words Vol 3. Hmmn nope not that one, not that one, scroll to the bottom of the page and finally I find one.
Out comes the old Mr Happy, and the Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2, and cut and emboss the sentiment, adding a touch of Purple ink through the die to take the edge off it. Add a few Ribbons from the stash, a couple of Butterflies, not that she's noticing them at all look at her, little hussy!! a bit of Crystal Accents, and mount it all up layered onto Lilac, and pink card...........Do you think I out to tell her not to hold her hopes on him?

No I havent been drinking, and no I havent taken the wrong tablets, but thats where my thought process went!!! Sorry thats the sort of mood I am in tonight!!
