revenge of the sumo cat...

Good morning all you wonderful people, I hope your all well and happy...my Dad is much less tired now, well he must be as he headed to Ikea with my Sister yesterday evening, I think he loves Ikea as much as we girls do lol...well its official I'm allergic to cats, my eyes are streaming, and I'm itchy all over...so its revenge of my Daughters sumo cat she was sent to torment me and her hair is everywhere so no escape...oh well its only a few days and antihistamines will have to do until she leaves and then a good clean up should sort out the hair...I cant believe I'm allergic to cats up until about 6 years ago we always had cats...isn't that weird...anyway onto my card for today which is using this stunning image from Crafts and Me, isn't she beautiful, shes by Sara Burrier and is called Sienna, I coloured her very simply with distress inks and did black/grey hair again to match this stunning Graphic45 paper from their Le Cirque range called Magnifique ...you cant beat a bit of Graphic45 can you...it suits her so much doesn't it...I cut some of the flowers from the paper and added pearls to their centres and finished with some thick black ribbon (wrapping from a box at Christmas, we crafter's throw nothing away do we lol)...the sentiment is from a Fizzy Moon stamp set...the sketch is from Sketch Saturday and Im also entering it for the Truly Madly Crafty Challenge and Robyn's Fetish Challenge...I'm going to lock myself in my craft room today to stay as far away as possible from the hairy sumo cat, poor thing its not her fault is it, but hopefully my tablets will work a bit better today and I can get back to stroking her again, I tried to get a photo of her yesterday but she doesn't like the camera and every time I went near her with it she gave a little moan and toddled off so I got fed up chasing her round and I'm sure she was fed up being chased lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and watch out for the revenge of the sumo cat lol

I suspect hun that you have always had a slight allergy but in that six year gap you have lost your tolerance. Solution - get a permanent cat! Gorgeous and elegant card, so classy. Hugs Sxx

Sue said...

Great card, Mina, and wonderful use of that DP. Some cats have more dander and shed more...so you may only be allergic to this particular type of cat. Spoken from experience!
