Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat

I'm still feeling pretty tired this week and the sleeping fiasco last weekend hasn't helped matters so I decided to take a mid week day off work yesterday and have some me time. Of course me time means stitching time :)

I decided to try and make inroads on another of the postcards swaps that I owe in. So I took some of this fabulous fabric.Some of these kitty heads (I'd cut them off a larger piece of fabric a while ago and saved them even though they weren't full heads, knowing that I'd find a use for them someday!)And some of this ribbon. After I had put these ingredients together they were still crying out for something else. I was stumped for a while until a couple of the kitties started purring and convinced me that they were feeling ever so slightly Bollywood. So a bucket load of beads and sequins later here are the finished cards.


Now it was only a couple of posts ago that I took the less is more approach to my orange postcards. These are definitely from the school of 'the more the better', lol! Ok so they might be a bit over the top but I had the most fun putting them together :)

I love those cats and I'm not a great lover of them.

I found your blog through Kate and love these cards. Would you consider selling me some ? Pretty please lol ! Unlike some of the other ladies I LOVE cats.

These cards are wonderful (and I am a fan of cats, even though I own a dog!!)
Sometimes projects just shout out and let us know what they need to be finished ... we just have to learn to listen :)
