Blame the Wallpaper

We have a cat flap now! litter tray's are now outside think it will take a little while for all IMPs to accept the idea that they now have outside facilities!    At least i do not have to sit with the backdoor open waiting for any wanderers to return.

It has taken me a week to make this card, now I've found Rogue Redhead Challenge's it's a good one to try to join in with as it does stretch me a little.   This fortnight the challenge is to work in a grid pattern.  Could not workout a design at first until realizing that the answer was in the bedroom.   I've not decorated yet and so there is patterned paper greeting me each day and it is an off set diamond shape that I keep trying to fit together.   So time to use the diamond nestie set.

So far so good now onto images and as this is for Rogue Redheads more of Shar's own stamps this time from the Beach Babes plate looked good.   A that remained to be chosen was the colour scheme.   Colour Create and Everybody art have challenges of Blue, White and Silver and Blue and White so that sorted that, and hopefully makes this eligible for Scrapbook Sisters 2 colour challenge. 

Bit cross with myself that the bottom shape moved slightly out of alignment did not realise until editing the photo by which time the glue had set.

Well it's the last week-end before Christmas, if you have to go out to the shops you might take a good craft magazine with you to read while you queue!
