Hi there! Since we have a long weekend (Monday is National Heroes Day) Luis and I planned to clean and paint the roof but unfortunately the weather has not been cooperating. We got the cleaning done but unless tomorrow dawns with blazing sunshine we'll have to wait until next weekend to paint. In the meantime I got some cleaning and tidying done around the house and then skedaddled to the Craft Cave to play along with some challenges.
First up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches and the Simon Says Wednesday Animal Magic challenge. I paper pieced this NBUS My Favourite Things kitty and her pillow and popped them up inside an MFT stitched arch. She's such a sassy little thing isn't she? I love her!

My second card was inspired by Anita's creation over at Muse. I decided to channel my inner Ardyth and really strip my design down. I took inspiration from Anita's colors, the butterflies and the sentiment strip. Because I went so CAS I'm also going to play along with CAS on Sunday's Butterflies challenge.
