Did i say kittie bee blog hop!?!

Hello! Yes this is so exciting the very first kittie bee designs blog hop. Its also my first ever blog hop (to actually post) so im super excited.

Ok so our new release designed by the ever so talented Ruth is a valentines release. We all have a project to share using one of the images. They are super cute you will definitely want to purchase one or two.. To create for your loved one for valentines day.

Now i chose a gorgeous racoon for my project called Bowl Of Hearts Racoon. You can purchase all of the digis here at the Kittie Bee Etsy Store

Here is my finished project


To create my card i matted some hunkydory adorable scorable (hearts card) onto some centura pearl card. I printed the little cutie onto some super smooth card and coloured using promarkers. I stickled the big heart for some extra sparkle. The sentiment is part of the LOTV sentiments set and thought it was a great sentiment to compliment this gorgeous image. I added some finishing touches but wanted to keep it CAS.

Heres a list of the hop incase you get lost, you should have arrived from.    But if not you can always head back to the kittie bee designs blog and start again.

Chit chat

Hi all,

I was at the gym this morning and thinking about things i need to do when it dauned on me that i only blog when i have a dt card to post.. I am such a boring blogger!

So i thought id share what iv been up to lately. For the past week i have been on leave from work which i was in desperate need for. In that time i have caught up on my crafting which sometimes gets neglected with my long working hours, caught up on some tv shows my fave at the mo being desperate housewives.

I went to amsterdam with my other half last week on a mini cruise from hull it was awesome,we drank lots of dutch beer and brought home some engraved glasses from the heineken museum..

You can tell who drinks more beer!!

So tomorrow i am celebrating my 23rd birthday and i am going to tgi fridays for scrummy food and coctails with my other half i cannot wait, then its back to work again on friday :(

Hope you all are well
Pop over and say hi
Hugs katie and the furbabies x
