Fat Cat Fred

I particularly wanted to blog this card because I have to thank two more lovely cyber friends from MSE who went to a lot of trouble to help me out when my computer skills were sorely tested recently with a page of digi images. I had no idea how to extract the individual images from the page and Margaret (Marg) and Angie (Point of No Return) came to my rescue. Thank you so much girls, I really love these images and wouldn't have been able to use them without your help.

My first attempt using Fat Cat Fred turned out like this and I'm hoping to find time to get around to using some more of them soon:


Card blank is by Papermania. Paul asked me if I'd cut it myself (as if LOL!!!) but I do see his point, considering these are die cut blanks there do seem to be a couple of wobbles on the scallops.
Image is from a sheet of downloadable freebies from Papercraft Essentials which I've coloured with Promarkers and glittered the brandy sauce on the pudding (or custard if that's your preference!). Sentiments also came from the same sheet.
Backing paper is a freebie but not sure where I got that from, I've also glittered the brandy sauce on those puddings.
Gold ribbon from stash and scalloped circles cut with Nesties.

I was going to send this card to my cat loving friend who, by her own admission is a little on the large size. I'm sure she wont take offence at the sentiment but I would probably worry that she would. I might send it to my DS and d-i-l as they both used to cook for us when we had the restaurant so that would be more appropriate!
