'Kitty Kats'

I've got some super news for you regarding the arrival of my skunk....breeding season has started & usually lasts from now until beginning of March. The gestational period is about 60 days & then 6-8 weeks after that I will have my little ball of fluffy nawtyness!! Soooo excited, we nipped into The Range last night to get our Danni a new sketch pad for collage & there were a few crafty things I usually would have brought, but I want my skunky to be spoilt so I'm saving my pennies lol.!

Anyhoos enough skunky talk....
 Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Try Stampin'On Tuesday!
As normal we have a fab sketch for you to follow, which is at the end of my post or you will find here. But there is also a theme for you to follow if you choose to....


I will admit I really wanted to distress my card this week & follow the theme as well, but I totally forgot. My card mustn't be to bad tho cus as soon as I popped it in my pile to pack it disappeared. Danni this time for a friends birthday lol!
