Kitten fun

 Hope today finds you happy and well. Today my card has these super cute kittens sat in a pot from the fab lily of the valley. Its not just kittens that are playful as I am cat sitting for my son as he is working from home post surgery and when he has his cat at home she goes sits on the keyboard of his works laptop which doesn't go down well. She is supposedly a house cat as we live near a main road and there are quite a few other cats live around us and many of them are fighters. My son is protective of his baby so his cat comes to my house and with her walking harness on and a long length of washing line has the run of the garden. She loves trying to catch the frogs in the pond but fortunately isn't interested in the fish, and has almost though not today yet had a pigeon by the tail feathers.

I coloured my image with promarkers and decided to use up some scraps and found I had an off-cut of pearlised blue paper, I cut a square from it to mat the image on and used the rest as a mat on the base card.  I found a co-ordinating patterned paper that added another layer and covered the hole I made to make the image base.

I wanted to pick out the yellow from the flower on the image so I used some yellow ribbon from my stash and hand-tied a bow. I then took a wired rose and threaded it through a yellow daisy type silk flower and then through the bow knot before coiling the wire stem.
Appologies again for the photo I am so missing my photo editor.
