Birthday Cat

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the easter break. Parcel Force arrived bright and early this morning with our new router so we're wireless again which is great because I can now use my printer without having to load all the software to connect it with a USB wire. Bad news is we still have intermittent internet because of the line fault. The engineers were out on Thursday and it seems that about 50 metres of cable will have to be replaced which also means digging holes so it will be at least a couple of weeks before it's sorted.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, here is a card I made this afternoon. I was looking at the themes of a few challenges - cats or dogs, a sketch, b + w with a splash, use greys, birthday and male - and thought they would work well together and this is the result. The cat stamp is Penny Black from the 'hello friend' collection coloured with Promarkers, the paper is My Mind's Eye 'lost and found' and the peel-off sentiment and card candi is from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'Cats and dogs'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'Sketch'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Cats and/or dogs'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'All creatures great and small'
That's Crafty challenge 'Black & white with a splash'
Graph'It Colour challenge 'Using greys'
Time Out challenge 'Happy birthday + option masculine' (I used the option)
Without Words challenge 'Gentlemen only'
