hop hop hop along with the New Country Cousins - Day 1...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I have made a new little friend...when we came home from Town yesterday there was a rather skinny and forlorn little cat sitting at our back door...the poor thing looked so cold and unloved what else could I do but bring it in and feed it...well feed it a few time actually...poor Phil lost all the chicken I had bought for his lunch lol...now I cant get rid of the gorgeous little thing and it was sitting there this morning when I got up...oops I think I have a friend for life....right now enough waffling from me...we have a brand new release of the gorgeous Country Cousins stamps happening this week at Funky Kits, they will be on sale on Friday the 25th and if your following the hop you should have landed here from the super talented
Jane's
blog, if you haven't you can hop on over to Sugar Nellie to find out the start

oh and don't forget to leave a comment on all the DT's blogs every day for a chance to win some prizes from Sugar Nellie...the gorgeous stamp we are showing off today is called Telltale, hasn't she just got the sweetest little face...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these stunningly coloured My Minds Eye papers...I used a mix of cut out and punched flowers and dragonflies mixed with some satin ribbon, lace and pearls to finish

I hope your enjoying the hop so far, we will be having another on Tuesday, Wednesday and for the release on Friday so loads more chances to win goodies along the way...your next stop on the hop is the amazing
Vicky
who has something stunning to show you...the sketch I used is from the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge...thanks for stopping by and I will speak to you all tomorrow...don't forget the comments for a chance to win
