Who’s for Lunch…

I wanted to share this cute House Mouse creation with you, I am just wondering
who is going to get fed the Cat or Fish ?? I do hope its the Fish getting fed!!
As most of you will know I love these cute stamps, BUT am having a moan bout
this one..which is called  “Something's Fishy” I do wish they hadn't cut off kittys tail,
it would have looked so much nicer with it curled round the front…image is
coloured with markers & prismas some stickles on the fish bowl..nestie shapes  mount
onto foam pads..DP is from Basic Grey Marrakech pad..matt onto pearl satin card..
all the edges have been stitched with a zig zag stitch on me trusty  machine.
Fancy corners are CB dies..plain blue BG paper has been thro swirl E/folder.
EK success border swirl punch..tag is a T/Holtz  distressed with D/ink..

When I read Heather’s, DT post for Simon Says stamp I can totally relate to
her use of “fancy stitching”  her machine does..I have a sewing machine that does
lots of fancy stitches so yes Heather just make sure you do have a few MILES of cotton..LOL
I am using sewing machine needles for Denim which are a thicker sturdier type better &
stronger for sewing card.. some challs for me card..

Oh this brought back memories Christine.. our old cat Tabitha once pushed the fish bowl off the dresser ( cos it had a net over and she couldn't get to the fish) ... the bowl smashed and Beth got told .. the fish had swum away ... but you can guess what really happened lol

Fab stitching.... i must give it a go ... but its a right palava getting the machine out .

we will try not to disappear as followers! But we can not help it if mr blogger does not play nice.

Gorgeous card, cute colours. the image is sweet and funny. However i think both the fish and the cat are going to get fed.
