Wash Day Wishes - Jayne Nestorenko

This is the card for my third week as GD at  I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge Blog.  I have to admit there nearly wasn't a card to enter this week as I finnished it too late to photograph it last night and managed to knock a cup of coffee over the original card, so quickly had to make another one, my original had a decopaged backing, but I just didn't have time to do that again.

This week we are being sponsored by Letraset  and challenge #122 is the '1950's'.  It took a while to work out what I was going to do but finally settled on a Jayne Nestorenko stamp that she did for the Adorables collection at Crafters Companion.

Have you ever seen such a sad looking cat?  The backing is from the CC cd and is called Grandma's Back Yard.  I can still remember on just like that, can any of you?  I have coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils as always. The banner is computer generated and cut with a Spellbinders banner die.  The border is a MS punch, and the flowers are a mixture of WOC and Hobbyhouse. The ribbon and corner are from my stash.
I am entering Crafts and Me challenge#89 'Anything Goes'; and Craftroom Challenge's 'Furry Four Legged Family'

Only one photo as I was in such a rush to get the second one made.
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking and do check out the cards the design team have made over at
I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge Blog.  We look forward to seeing your entries

Gorgeous Eileen, and yep this image takes me back, even though I was a 60's baby. I can remember our tin bath, but it was for us, not the cat! and this looks just like our old back yard.... lol. Great take on this weeks challenge.
