Something completely different!

Over at SCD the theme for the month has been Gothic Arches. Ive always liked the idea of doing these but just never found the time! When I saw Melody was on the DT earlier in the month I vowed to have a go and eventually here it is!

If you have been following my other blog you will know Im into making everything in two's just now so then had to do another! Any one who has been at our house for any length of time would recognise the top window as being Sid our split personality cat! the stamped image has a much friendlier face than our Sid when he wants to be let in!
Recipe 1
Card stock by Kanban
Lace from stash
Cat stamp from PSX (over 10 years old!)
Window frame cut out on the slice
purrfect - not sure of actual make but was a docraft promotion
Edges stamp - in white is a snagem tree
The swirls on the frame a little stamp I bought off ebay about 3 yrs ago!
and ribbon from stash
recipe 2
Card stock by kanban
Ribbon from stampman
window stamp paperartsy mini
Tree - snagem
Cat and purrfect not sure as above a papermania offer
White ink pad from stampin up
Red gel pen and crystal stickles
really loved the shape - shame the theme has ended but looking forward to something completely different for the next challenge LOL x
