My happy Place

'Your Happy Place'

I'm always happy when I'm with my cat.

 
 This is a card I made many moons ago but found recently when I was tidying up. It was made from a panel of gift wrap and I then made a 3D effect of the cats by giving them a number of different layer, depending on the different heights that I wanted.
I made a lot of cards using this technique at the time.

I am also going to enter this over at Simon says stamp blog were they are celebrating a holiday especially for use cardies

 
Pop over and join in the fun.

Sticker tags

Cuttlebug mania have this cue
'Fruit, berries or anything from the garden' and off course you have to use a die or embossing folder.

I made these gift tags.

 
 The flowers are all made from the labels of a discontinued range of soaps and toiletry.
Initially I cut 2 identical tags, one out of plain white card stock and the second out of the flowery stickers. I cut about 1.5cms of the bottom of the flowers and added some checks to the white tag so that they stick out of the bottom.
 
Supplies:
Card stock: 160gsm in white
