Truly Scrumptious DT - Hiddden Message

Here's this weeks sketch for you over a Truly Scrumptious and the optional exra this challenge is is to design the layout so that the tag shaped element slides out to reveal a hidden message or sentiment.


Our sponsor this week is Crafty Individuals - just check out the amazing prize on offer.

I couldn't resist using this adorable cat by Crissy Armstrong - he/she is called Pebbles the Cat and he so reminds me of a cat I once had - his name was Roger (don't ask - or I might have to tell you about the rabbit and the guinea pig) and was commonly known as Fluff.  Pebbles is a digi-image available at Whimsy stamps HERE


I coloured Pebbles with Copics and and sat hime behind a Nellie Snellon frame, the gorgeous check paper is from the lovely Martine - they are a free download just go and check them out. The flowers are cut with a die from the Sizzix leaf and branch set and hung on braid which I braided myself. I've been asked for a tutorial on braiding which I am working on at the moment.  The sentiment is also a digi-download that compliments Pebbles along with others in the set.


Here is a photograph of Roger aka Fluff, curled up in a large plant pot around the trunk of my acer tree.

Copics used
E31/ 33/ 35/ 37 E70/ 71

Well the Hayfever season is truly here - I've done nothing but sneeze all morning, they are cutting the grass outside so it's all windows and doors well and truly closed.

Roger is far prettier than fluff who looks quite bad tempered. Roger could almost bed the twin of my cat Sandy, is he stupid and daft like Sandy?
