MCH DT Card & Candy Winner

Good evening my lovelies I am here finally with my DT card & the candy winner.
First I will show you my card, then the candy winner with an updated pic of kitten. I will do it this way cus once you see the kitten you wont want to look at the card lol.

Ok so my card is for My Crafty Heart & the lovely Teresa now has the yummy Saturated Canary rubber stamps in stock.............so thats what I'm showing you today.
This is 'Autumn' & she is one of my favourite Saturated Canary stamps, its the hair........oh poop I also realized I forgot colour the leaves.........darn it, will colour them up later lol. I also ended up making the rake look like a broom........I dont know why I think its because I use a brush to sweep up my leaves off the path lol.

The dark brown die-cut that you can see some leaves on is actually the 'Jasmine Frame' which I snipped & added along the top.
Added 2 Prima flowers & leaf.

The paper is my absolute favourite one & its Prima 'Romance Novel' I soooooooo love this pad.
I've also added a piece of burlap, ribbon & lace from my stash.
The sentiment I cut from the paper pad.

I also added a Prima 'Papillon' (butterfly) & spots of pearls with my Pearl Pen.

Ingredients used.........
Saturated Canary 'Autumn' rubber stamp 
Prima 'Romance Novel' papers
MB 'Jasmine Frame' die
Prima Fabric Leaf 
Prima Papillon - Romance Novel
Prima Cabaletta 'Fall' fabric flower
Prime Selentium 'Tea Thyme' flower
Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen
All of the items above are all from My Crafty Heart. Pop along & get some yummy goodies into your basket ;0)


Ok now I know I am slightly late with this.......2 reasons, 1 is that I've had my family over for tea, we were invited to Ben & Megans but we didnt want to leave kitten within 24 hours of her being in her new surroundings.
The 2nd reason is that BOY did you make it hard for all of us to choose a name............boy o'boy we finally did narrow it down to 5..............it then took an hour to choose just one of those.....

This was taken this morning, the pic I posted the other day I think she was only 6 weeks old there. Isnt she just the most gorgeous little ball of fluff lol.

Anyway the name we finally chose for this beauty is............ 'MINKA' we loved this name as soon as we heard ourselves say it & the name we thought would suit her even when she's older & if like her mother VERY HUGE!!! lol

So this is 'Minka'. Now we the family agreed that any doubles we had it would be the first person to suggest the name, which seemed tha fair thing to do. So the winner of these Rubber Stamps is.........

Congratulations sweetie if you would like to email me with your address, can you title your email 'Candy Winner' plz shug.

Myself & my family would like to thank you all a BJILLION times for all of your help insuggesting these wonderful names............I have had fun even though it was so hard to choose one. Hope you all had fun doing this, it was something different lol.

Will have more candy again soon my lovelies. Thank you for all of your continued support you guys will are the best mmwah!!!!

DebraK said...

oh, that is the purr-fect name!!! She is adorable! I gave our baby furball a shower this morning and the screams could be heard from 2 blocks away! She finally calmed down, but there was a LOT hair that got caught in the drain. Best thing about it all--she still loves me... :) I think I need to do this more than once a year--stinky little girl. I came out of the bathroom and the other 3 looked at me like I killed that cat---too funny...!!!
