Crafty Catz Challenge #555- Optional twist- Make a scene

 Hello! Running a bit late today with my post for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz. I'm off on holiday tomorrow so I've been busy packing and getting and getting the house ready for Marvin's 'babysitter', a lovely friend who has kindly offered to stay here with him while we are away. Usually we take our dogs with us when we go on holiday but at 5 months he's too young for the journey. Also he has kleptomaniac tendencies and I wouldn't trust him in someone else's property! He really loves his Aunty Helen and she loves him so I know he'll be perfectly happy with her but we're going to miss him!

Anyway back to the card...this week the optional theme has been chosen by our lovely Nick, 

'Make a Scene'

We are sponsored this week by 


I made a bridge fold card, the background toadstool houses are a Polkadoodles stamp,  the little fairy is from Jenoviya Art and the toadstool border is a die cut, also Polkadoodles. I've used Copic Markers to colour.
As always there's plenty of beautiful makes from the Crafty Catz over at the Challenge blog- hope to have you play along this week- remember the theme is always an option, we love to see your creations whatever they are!
Thanks for stopping by- see you in a week.

You will miss Marvin, Bella has separation syndrome and needs to be with us all the time, so we are trying to leave her outside for a while on her own but always cries.. a real sookie baby. Enjoy your break though as Marvin is still in his surrounds.
Love your card and scene too. x
