Bows, Buttons and a Stitch or Two

Hello on this sunny Monday afternoon! Ok, I'm going to have to calm down as I've just experienced a bit of road rage! Without going into too many details, I've just had a 38 tonner right up my ar*e, beeping and flashing his lights as I wasn't going fast enough for him (despite the fact that I was doing the speed limit on that road). So when he finally overtook me, he got stuck behind the next car and tried to overtake them on a bend, what is it with these people!

Changing the subject to a more calming one, here's a little card I made for Penny Black Saturday Challenge (Buttons and Bows) and Cupcake Craft Challenges (Buttons and Stitching)...

The image and sentiment are both Penny Black, I've coloured the cute kitties with Promarkers. The scallops were done with a SU border punch, and I punched holes with my Big Bite to thread the ribbon through. The ribbon is from my friend Tracy, thanks hun! The paper is K & Co "Sparkly Sweet". I've added three little buttons to fit with the challenge.

Right, off to make myself a cuppa to calm my nerves!

Aaahhh Shelley put some whiskey in that tea - there aren't half some idiots on the roads ( home and abroad). Love the card, the colours on the cats are superb.
