Stranger than fiction!!

2nd Post 
I wasn't planning on writing a post this evening ... but I have to let you know something VERY strange ...
I wrote on my earlier post about the cat ... my DH reminded me that in fact it is more like 6 weeks since we last saw her ... I was touched by your comments ... and when I finished reading them I started to clear up my craft room then .. "MEOWWWW!!!" ....... there she was ... honest to God .... she was standing right beside me!! I thought I was seeing things but that cry ... I knew .. I screamed to Mikey and he came running down stairs ... OMG ... how did that happen?? But here she is again .. a little thinner but non the worse for wear and following me everywhere ... To be honest I am a little stunned ... Ok ... I am in shock! wondering where she has been and why .. after I write about her - she comes back .....
How weird is that??

Till soon

Cat ... Aperture Box ... & CR84FN

Hello ... 
I hope you are all well and enjoying what is left of the summer ... In the USA I see that you are getting ready for the new school term whilst here in the UK the children are just starting the Summer break and so far we can't complain about the weather ... 
First up I wanted to let you know about "our" CAT... since a few of you have commented ... We lost the sweet little cat about a month ago ...  having decided to secretly keep her ... she was so happy here and did not want to go home .. she settled in ... my son adored her (so did I) and she him ... then one morning she went out and never came back ... At first we thought her real owner had kept her indoors ... We looked for her ... even got up in the night to search ... Then after 2 weeks of not seeing her... the owner came here to ask if we had her ... I knew then that we were never going to see her again .. I have no idea what happened to her and was angry that it took the owner 2 weeks to check up on her ... But either way she is gone ... I want to go to the RSPCA to get another cat but I am wary as cats here seem to go missing a lot ... So we'll see ...

Now yesterday I said I would show you the box I made for the Anniversary wall hanging ... so here it is 



I made the box from heavy CS and covered the top with papers ... then cut through all layers with my Sizzix heart die ... I made a little shallow 'tray' from CS and adhered some flowers to it and then sealed it to the underside of the box lid and neatened it all off with another piece of CS ... this is the back


I decided against using acetate ... simply because I wanted the flowers to be free to hang over the heart ...


and here is the gift in the box 


CR84FN Colour Challenge this week has the most beautiful palette


I have not entered any challenges for ages but now my Thursday Club is closed for the Summer break ... I have a little more time and I have so many birthday's coming up this month ... it was the perfect excuse to get creative ... this is my take


Sorry about the quality of the photo .. I am struggling both with my camera at the moment and the light conditions ...


Both my papers are digital ... the grey dot is Vintage Finding from Jen Allyson and the floral paper is from the Evergreen collection of Jopke Design both from DHD ... the flowers were made with some paper from my stash ... sorry I don't know the make ... it was single sided so I covered one side with TH distress stains ...
Rather a long post today ... so now I'm off for a nice Cappuccino ...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by

Till soon
