Crafty Catz Challenge #571- optional twist- add a tag

 Good morning- 5th November, Guy Fawkes day here in the UK, not my favourite time of year, I feel too sorry for all the poor animals traumatised by the ever-louder bangs and whizzes from fireworks, sometimes it feels like living in a war- zone here the explosions are so loud! I have no problem with people having fun and enjoying themselves but wish it could be limited to one day instead of dragging on for weeks. At least Marvin doesn't seem too bothered, it just makes him bark a bit, he's not a trembling wreck hiding under the table like one of Great Danes was, bless her!. OK time to stop moaning and get back to the card.

This week at Crafty Catz our fabulous sponsor is


Billie is hosting the challenge and the theme she has chosen for the DT is

I used  Goldie a pretty image from our sponsor. she's coloured with Copic Markers. I made a little scene for her, a sponged and stencilled sky, extra pumpkins stamped onto inked and splattered card and fussy cut, leaves stamped and coloured with markers, a die cut fence and sunflowers- put it all together ...then realised I'd forgotten the tag element!!!  My forget-ory is better than my memory these days. So I made a little tag stamped  the sentiment and added it to the card with the little sunflower brad and a twine bow.

There's plenty more inspiration from the rest of the team over at Crafty Catz, as always my teamies have produced some fabulous cards using these sweet digis.
We hope you can join  us this week- remember the theme is an option, you can join in with any project you wish.

Thanks for visiting
For those who celebrate Guy Fawkes night., have a good time, keep safe and remember the animals.

Beautiful card Chris, love the frame too.
Agree with you about the fireworks, think it should just be the organised ones these days and be done with it, safer anyway.xx

Gorgeous card and so beautifully coloured Chris ..I'm dreading tonight Woody just freaks out and has been for a few weeks because they just set them off all the time! He has had his meds so I'm hoping they kick in because we got stronger ones off the vet I just wish they weren't sold and just kept to proper displays for the one night. Have a lovely weekend hugs Sue x

What wonderful Autumnal colours Chris fab image super colouring and card design love the added tag. Fireworks have been going off here for a few days now they seem to get louder each year, Jess is scared to death she hides under the table in the front room or tries hiding behind the door in the bathroom, I do feel for all animals both pets and the wild animals that are just as scared.

Awww, your card is so sweet and pretty! What a cheerful scene it is. I hope things have settled down a little bit there. Our dogs do not seem to mind any of the noise (referring to Independence Day here), but our neighbor friend's dog gets quite traumatized, even when he has a tranquilizer. Thank you for sharing your darling card with us at Four Seasons!
