My happy Place

'Your Happy Place'

I'm always happy when I'm with my cat.

 
 This is a card I made many moons ago but found recently when I was tidying up. It was made from a panel of gift wrap and I then made a 3D effect of the cats by giving them a number of different layer, depending on the different heights that I wanted.
I made a lot of cards using this technique at the time.

I am also going to enter this over at Simon says stamp blog were they are celebrating a holiday especially for use cardies

 
Pop over and join in the fun.
