We have had a great weekend, hope you have too. Kip built a compost bin for our backyard and I managed to get some things done around the house. We have been eating healthier for the past couple of weeks which means time sent planning meals, shopping, food prep and cooking all our meals. It has gotten easier with each week and I try to do as much of the food prep as I can on the weekends to save as much time as I can during the week. I think I chopped about 10 onions today, but that is the only time I will have to chop them all week. On the menu tonight; chicken fajitas and it's time to get them started. Thanks for dropping by!

This is my card for the Shirley's 2 girls Twisted Thursday Challenge. There is a sketch provided and then a twist--this week it was to use the sketch and twine or raffia on your card. When I read the challenge, the post says that the DT will be using cats on their projects and for some reason the cat part of that stuck in my head so I thought I had to use cats too. Next time I will read a little closer! I only have one S2G stamp that has cats on it so I used it, but I cut the cats out so that they would fit with the sketch. We have three cats here at our house so I colored them to look like two of them. Images were stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic and Spica makers and I used a white gel pen to make the strips on the orange cat. The Christmas tree is from Inky Antics and was stamped with CTMH Chocolate ink and colored with Copics. I used some red seed beads on the wreath and the tag is a Cuttlebug die. I bought that patterned paper when I first started making cards, it was a giant pack of Christmas papers and I love them, I can't remember who made it though, card stock is Making Memories.
