Fussy and Fancy Challenge #121 with Crafty Sentiments

Happy Friday! Only one week of my holiday left and guess where I'll be spending it?! Not at the beach, no....Not in the countryside, no....Not visiting some fantastic place, no....I'll be back at work. I have moved classrooms this year again so I now have to go in, reorganise all my stuff in cupboards (just hope they have been emptied!) and start to put up displays and tray labels for the kids etc. That will take me the best part of the week as well all the planning I have to do with my partner teacher as well.

Anyway it's time for another challenge from the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog and this fortnight we have a great challenge for you, sponsored by Crafty Sentiments. Our challenge for you is pets, so included a pet of some kind on your project!

Here's a picture of my cat, Tallulah Zazzles (yes I let the boyfriend pick her name) and she's a gorgeous Blue British Shorthair and the stroppiest madam I have ever met! She snuffs her nose at any food that is not the posh food or cream - she will not eat wet food at all. She has about 6 different beds dotted around the house and her favourite place to sleep, believe it or not, is in the lid of a paper box that I brought home from work. It has completely fallen to bits and is taped up, but she will not sleep anywhere else - why? See, stroppy LOL

Enough about Tallulah and on to my card. I used the cute Friendship digi stamp from Crafty Sentiments for this card and went for a little more vintage feel for it.
