CD Sunday Plus - Challenge #124 - hosted by Jocelyn


I think that this is one of the most realistic animal stitching patterns that I have found.

It was made using a Sparkle Stitch card pattern -  downloaded from 'Add Some Sparkle'.  The pink and black mats were cut using Carnation Crafts Shabby dies. The sentiment comes from a box of various ones I must have had for years.

It looks so much more realistic in the 'flesh'.  The pattern seems to make the body of the cat seem rounded.  I know quite a few cat lovers and this will be destined for one of them.  I quite like cats but would prefer a dog - if I could cope with having a pet again.  My last dog was a beautiful black and white English Springer Spaniel.  He was gorgeous.  Ah well!!




  1. This is beautiful and as you say, very realistic.

  2. Perfect stitching and gorgeous framing, Carol. I read your message that you mailed our card and am letting you know yours went out in today's mail. Let's let each other know when they've arrived, okay? Have a great week, xoxo

    1. Thanks for liking my card. Yes, I will let you know when it arrives. xxx

  3. Fabulous stitching Carol, a lovely design.
    I've never had a cat. As you know, it's spaniels every time for me!
