Sweet Treats

Yesterday in Malta it was a Public Holiday. Being such a nice Summer day I thought we would go to the pool as usual, but no, hubby didn't feel like it, and me... well.. we've been going to the pool or the beach nearly every weekend so I didn't complain and I just spent it in my craft room.... like I used to do quite some time ago... aaah pure bliss :)
Don't you just wish that everyday was a public holiday!!
I just know what I would do.. First I would fix up my craft room, because it's always in a real big mess, then I would give a good makeover to our house, then I would do whatever else that I always keep putting off, and then when I'm done.... I would get into a nice and easy routine, doing the housework, cooking etc in a more relaxed time, have time for my training and exercises and leaving enough time for my hobbies, card-making of course, sewing and hopefully starting to draw again .... dreams dreams dreams.. but I have to wait for now, maybe until the day I can retire or win the lottery ha ha ha :P

Anyway, on to my DT card now for the new challenge that started today at
I ♥ Promarkers

The theme for this week is

 For this week I decided to use one of my gorgeous stamps from Lili of the Valley, I thought this cute cat would be just perfect for our theme! The background paper and banners paper is from my Bo Bunny paperpack. To do the banners, not having a banner die, I used a sentiment die , using just the ends of it... I think it came out quite good, really pleased.

Used quite a few dies this time.. there is also the balloons dies from XCut, while the zig zag die is Spellbinders. I'm really pleased with how my card turned out this time.. It really does show when you are relaxed and having fun, not tight on time as I always am lately!!!

We are this week sponsored by
Clearly Besotted Stamps and Dies and the prize is £15.00 voucher to spend in the store.
