There's just nothing to it


                                                       
                                                       
This is my kinda challenge. Today was my first day back at work, I have to admit it started off badly. My husband and I walk to the railway station in the morning every day. For the last three years we have been greeted by the cutest cat who always put a smile on my face. I am not an animal lover but I thought this cat was adorable. Very sadly today whilst we were walking "fat cat" had been run over by a car and was in the middle of the road, I was horrified and had to stop myself from crying. My husband picked the cat up and put it on the nature strip, we knocked on the owners door to advise them about what had happened but they weren't home, hope they weren't too shocked when they found out the sad news. I will miss this little cat on my morning walk.

I made this card basically to cheer up. It is a card following the challenge over at
City Crafter Chalenge Blog. The challenge is to make a creation with no bows, no lace, no flowers and no buttons. I love simple cards and so thoroughly enjoyed making this card that includes very little. I have had these rub-ons for a very long time and happy that I have been able to use them atlast.

The other challenges I have included-
Guylou's Inimitability Blog-Anything goes.
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge-Someone Special.



Anyway, hope all of you lovely people are having a good week. Keep smiling and thanks so much for visiting my blog. I have said it before and I will say it again, I really appreciate the time you have spent here.
