Pretty peachy PomPom!

Good evening all and I hope that your week has started well. Just a quick posting from me this evening - feeling a bit stressed at the moment! I've got a poorly grumpy cat at the moment. She's been a bit unwell for a few days and so a trip to the vet's took place this tea-time. She really didn't enjoy that! But she had a couple of tests and then back tomorrow morning for more blood tests. (So I'll get the cheque book ready as well lol!).  And I'm pretty busy at work, doing extra hours at the moment. I work part-time at an accountants but do extra hours at busy periods - and this month is our busiest month with all those tax returns having to be in by the end of January! So with the combination of extra hours, a poorly cat and a husband with a cold I'm feeling a bit fraught! Sigh. So time to pull the big girl panties on and deal with it all!
Anyway, just thought I'd share a card I made with a cute little stamp from LOTV 'PomPom' coloured with promarkers and pencils (and some added glitter!)

I decided to go for peachy colours this time, and just love that gorgeous backing paper from First Edition. I added an embossed panel and some flowers.

Stamp - LOTV 'PomPom'
Sentiment - LOTV
Papers - First Edition, Coredinations
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug 'Divine swirls'
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Dies - Sizzix circles and Spellbinders Persian Motifs (corners)

Hope you like the little cutie!
Back soon,
Kim x

  1. This is gorgeous Kim. I love the cute image and beautiful papers and embossing.

    Thank you, also, for taking part in the Card Mania Challenge

    I hope your cat is better soon, it is always such a worry when our pets are ill.


  2. Hello Kim, hope things slow down for you soon. And I hope your cat gets well soon, vet trips really dip into that spare cash that should be spent on crafty goodies lol.... We had to take poppy earlier last week for some hormone med as she was having a phantom pregnancy, that cost just over 60quid for the tinest bottle you have ever seen lol.
    Your card is gorgeous as always, love yours colouring and that panel looks ace.
    Take care and keep warm
    Hugs Kelly
