Friendly Challenge - Cats.

Hello my scraptastic friends, I have the latest Friendly Challenge to share with you today. 
If you are a regular visitor to my humble blog you will know that my dearest friend Helen and I set a scrappy challenge about once a month and this month I set the challenge to use this set of wooden cats by Studio Calico.

Here is my take on the challenge and I have been waiting patiently for this challenge to come up as I had the idea of what I was going to do as soon as I bought the packs of cats!

I few bits of ephemera from one of my Like Forever Kits and the gorgeous 'I Love You' washi just had to feature some where!

I only coloured the larger wooden cat orange as I couldn't quite get the shade I wanted to match Gingers fur. but I did colour all the stars yellow.

One last look at the embellishment circle.

Two great minds think alike - Helen also has a stitched circle effect on her layout. Her photo shows five of her cats asleep on one of her daughters beds! 

I just love not only the nursery rhyme title but that she has made it from Dymo tape!
How great doe's this look?

As Helen has multiple coloured cats in her photo she was able to colour her wooden cats a variety of shades. 
I love that this wood embellishment pack has several poses and types of cat in the set. Helen has shown a variety here and aren't they just adorable!

I absolutely love how Helen has some cats walking around her stitched circle together!

There we are, a couple of layouts featuring cats, cats and more cats! Hope you enjoyed seeing our challenge today and I hope to be back with our next challenge soon, which is using this Fiskars hexagon stitching template.
Thanks for stopping by.
