Wee stamps kitty for Mothers Day

Good afternoon all
boy, it's turned cold again, I don't know, a couple of sunny days and then it's been trying (and failing luckily!!) to snow again-just when is spring going to appear???
I don't know where this weeks half term has gone, I can't believe it is Thursday already. I decided to have a bit of a craft afternoon yesterday and got all my stash out on the dining room table and would you believe it I had one interruption after another, phone calls from the kids, text messages I had to reply to, deliveries to the door, nuisance selling phone calls and I just couldn't concentrate at all-just typical!!
I did manage to finish this card for my lovely Mum for Mothers Day though and have another three cards at various stages of being finished-I may well try again this afternoon (and might just take the phone off the hook this time!!)
For my card I used this sweet little freebie Kitty image from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet, coloured with my promarkers. I used a freebie paper pack from Quick Cards (no first edition papers today lol!!) and layered it with some lace and fancy punched strip using my Hobbycraft edging punch. I cut some fancy corners with an Xcut corner punch and added some paper flowers,glitter glue, and some adhesive pearls from the 99p store (which they don't seem to have any more, I do keep looking!!)  -hope you like it!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine challenge 74 - Ribbon lace or twine
Di's Digi Design challenge - Lace and Pearls
Fab N Funky challenge 159 - Flower Power
I Love Promarkers challenge 156 - Four Legged Friends
The Paper Shelter challenge 100- Celebrations
Simply Create Too challenge 31 - Mother's Day
Papercrafting Journey challenge - Bingo (lace, gems, sentiment)

Thanks so much for popping by, have a good week and until next time.
