Crafty Catz are back!

 Good morning, I'm delighted to say that Crafty Catz Challenges are back after our summer break. This week our optional theme  Use a Stencil  was chosen by Billie, our lovely host for this week. Our sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digital Stamps- more details over on the challenge blog.

I made a one layer card and matching envelope using some lovely Lavinia stamps and a beautiful stencil, also Lavinia. I had been watching some tutorials on u tube and this was inspired by one of them.  

As always there's plenty to see over at Crafty Catz where my lovely, well-rested teamies have been busy creating their magic to inspire you, so please do hop over for a visit. Remember, our theme is optional, you can join in with any creation you please do.

Thanks for visiting

Have a great weekend
