Oldie for Friday

Good Morning!

Well as it's Friday again it's the day for showing cards which were made a long time ago.

Erica at Snappy Crafts blog invites us to link up with her.  If you leave a comment for Erika she'll visit you too.  It's fun to see other peoples "oldies" too.

The little kitten is a wood mounted stamp that I bought a long time ago in a bargain bin (from Hobby Craft I think)

I stamped him three times onto pages from an old dictionary then gave them a light wash of watercolour, fussy cut them and stuck them onto the background which is a linen paper.

I have  many wooden stamps that at stored on shelves in Really Useful plastic boxes.  Not the best way to store wood mounted stamps but I really have a lot.  I must try to find this little guy and bring him out again.  He really is quite sweet, isn't he?

Happy Crafting Everyone.

Hi Barb,
what a wonderful card.
I love those cats, and they look gorgeous stamped on that printed paper or card.
Now I am not a lover of cats, as we used to have strays in the roof of were I worked many years ago, and smell when we got in the office every morning soon made me hate them, but those are sure cute looking.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

You've given me a new idea--to use my old dictionary for animal stamps! Love this cute card, Barb!
