You’re my kind of Purr fect!

Hello and . . .   Happy Thursday!  I like Thursdays – they always had great lessons in school on a Thursday and I think that’s why (even now, a gazillion years later) I still like Thursdays.  There’s something friendly about a Thursday.  I always (mostly) seem to find that people are in a good mood on a Thursday.  Why is that?  I wonder.

Aw, – enough of me blathering on ….

I’m here with a  gentle looking, pretty card ‘offering’ today.  This is one of those great cards which could be a birthday card,  a ‘hello’ card,  a card for a daughter, for mom, wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, partner (in life or crime! lol)  …  or it could even be a Valentines Day card!  And .. what’s even better … it has a matching box!

My kind of Purr fect 5

I decorated the outside of the box (shown above) so that it pretty much matched the card inside it.  I used the same soft pink and white striped backing paper on the box lid as I did on the card, along with the same colour of my favourite rayon ribbon,  –  and the flowers and little bird, although in different shades of pink, are the same as on the card.  The little bird is bringing a tiny red love heart in its beak – so bringing the love to … the card?  The bird’s nest?  To you?

The little birds nest with the ‘eggs’ inside it;  I made by simply winding string round and round (and the use of glue to keep it in place),  and I used three pearls from an old broken necklace as eggs.   The die cut ‘Lots of Love’ was made using a die made by Tattered Lace.  (I’m very much a bunting kinda girl – so these little bunting style word dies were right up my street!)

My kind of Purr fect 3I love to make boxed cards as they always feel more like a gift than just a simple card, and so I like to decorate the boxes – inside and out.  The inside of the box was lined (top and bottom) in 6×6″ vintage style sheet music, and into the centre of the inside lid I fixed a beautiful topper –  from DoCrafts as part of a selection of die cut toppers.

My kind of Purr fect 4The little girl sat on the step and snuggling up to her cat is from a book of toppers made by Lili of the Valley.  I have a few of these books and love them for the delightful colours which LOTV use in their production.  I highly recommend them.  They’re brilliant quality.  The sentiment banner is one I made myself on the computer and printed it out.  If you can’t quite read it, it says:  ‘You’re my kind of Purr fect!’.

Top and bottom of the front of the card is some lovely white, cotton, crocheted lace.  The bird(s) are resin, and the flowers are paper flowers, from a selection I have.

My kind of Purr fect 6Isn’t she just adorable?  I love her cute face, cheeky smile and want to squidge those cheeks!

All the photographs here will re-size as if by magic if you click on them and you’ll be able to get a better view then.  (but don’t forget to click ‘back’ so that you can come back to the post!)

I would like to enter my card into these fabulous challenges:

Thank you so much for coming and sharing a few moments with me and taking a peep at my card.  I really hope you like it.

Wishing you a day filled with warm smiles, gentle touches and peace filled moments.  Have a wonderful day my friends.

Love Cobwebs

  1. What a lovely card Cobs…that little sweetie looked like my daughter when she was small…
    I do hope you are going to enter it into the challenges…
    How do you get the boxes? Do you make them from scratch or do you buy them somewhere?
    hugs…Eva

    • Hello Eva – as always I love seeing your name pop up when I open up my blog, it brings a sort of warm glow of friendly love which swishes over me. Wonderful feeling.

      The boxes … I try to make my boxes if I at all can, as it’s cheaper than buying ready made. If I don’t have the right size of card (for bigger boxes) then I have to use ready cut boxes – which I have a small selection of – just in case!. If you can’t make boxes (and I know some folks just can’t seem to get around the instructions) then you can buy boxes all over the place. I found some lovely mirror board boxes on eBay a couple of years ago, at quite a good price. So do shop around if you’re buying ready mades to make sure you get a good price.
      Sending love, as always ~ Cobs. x

  2. I just finished telling my littlest one, “Tomorrow will be Thursday, my favorite day of the week” and then I saw your post. How interesting that we both like Thursday!

    Lovely card, as usual, with so many nice details. I especially love the “Lots of Love” banner and adorable little girl. Beautiful!

    • YOU TOO?!!! I think we should come together to make some sort of ‘group’ –
      Supporters of Thursdays. Noo.. that sounds boring – let me try again
      Thursday Lovers … Oh NO! That sounds like we might be taking part in a 50 Shades of Grey experiment!
      Try again Cobs!
      Hmmm.. this is going to take more brain power. My brain hasn’t had enough coffee yet. If I come up with a title, I’ll be back… but if you come up with one before me then that’s what we’ll call ourselves! 🙂
      Thank you for the comment Michelle. I love you for it.

    • Hello dearest Astrid.
      A comment from you is like finding a wonderful treasure. Thank you, a squadillion times for taking the time out of your busy day to come and visit. (And I know your days are busy because I’ve read a tiny bit of all that you do!)

      You love Thursdays too?!!! Again … we match! I’m beginning to think we were separated at birth. LOL.

  4. Tuesday has always been my favorite day of the week. I think because so many thing need done by Friday, it’s more pressure. Tuesday is a day you can just coast on by.

    I hope you do enter the challenges. Your card is beautiful. I do love the box idea for cards. It does make them like opening a gift.

  5. Hello from Queensland!
    You gave my Sunday a wonderful start this morning when I saw that you had visited and then signed to follow KenMaursCorner!
    I started my day with a wider smile than usual, after reading ” We’re all mad here” and then “You’re my kind of purr-fect” put the happiness seal on my day.
    Thank you for following my blog.
    Was it Patsye of Whimseytopia…..that caused you to come and visit?? I hope you have a Sunday as great as mine has been.

    • Hello Maureen. How wonderful to have a visit from you. … aw …I’m all wriggly with glee bubbles now. lol

      Thrilled to pieces that you liked ‘We’re all Mad here’, and also ‘You’re my kind of Purr fect!’, and hugs to you for leaving me a comment. I very much appreciate comments as it allows me to actually get talking to folks and get to know them better. It makes blogging such a friendly sort of place. 🙂

      What caused me to come and visit your blog? … Well you’re sort of correct when you think of Patsye.

      I visit Patsye lots (a talented, wonderful lady and so easy to love) … I happened to read a comment you’d left for Patsye on her blog. You came over as such a lovely person, so I visited your blog – and one read turned into another and then another… and I decided right there and then that I had to include you on my list of wonderful folks who’s blogs I follow.

      And now you’re here, and we’re already chatting! Awww don’t you just love Blog land when it works so fabulously?
      Great to see you here Maureen. Sending love to you ~ Cobs. x
