A blast from the past.......

I was sorting out my rubber stamps, trying to find the best way to organise them, when I came across this long-forgotten Bagpuss stamp.  I'm not sure if it was shown in the US, but Bagpuss was a popular children's televsion programme in the UK, back in the 1970s.  
To keep the cat theme, I used a Creative Expressions 'Pawprint Lattice' embossing folder and a pawprint border punch. The image was coloured with Promarkers and was die cut with Memory Box Stitched Squares.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Stamping Sensations July Challenge ~ Feature a Creature
Penny Black and More July challenge ~ Anything goes with a sentiment
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 186 ~ Used turquoise snippets
Bizzy Bec's July Challenge ~ Anything Goes

Love your card. Hugs Mrs A.

Oh how sweet! I love it - and now I'm thinking "Bagpus, dear Bagpuss, dear fat furry cat puss, wake up and look at this thing that I bring..."
