Happiness is....

I thought I'd post this to try and remind myself why I love my cats, they are making life very hard for me today by being general little wotsits and won't let me get anything done!

I made this a couple of weeks ago and as always, hadnt got round to posting it yet! The image is a stamp from Dimension Fourth, but I've only used it a few times as it's quite difficult to get a good impresssion out of it. I still adore it though! Here, I've stamped in Memento and inked around the image with Pumice Stone distress ink. I've used Papers from the Papermania V&A collection, which are also inked around, and the corner is made with a sizzix die.
The Lace, Bakers twine and the mosaic tiles are from stash, and the sentiment is from a stamp set by Personal Impressions. I've added a touch of glossy accents to the cats eyes to make them shine :)
