We’re so wonderfully,wonderfully,wonderfully,wonderfully pretty….well that’s enough of The Cure 🙂 and so onto my Love ♥ reminder post for Just Some Lines.There’s still plenty of time to play and the freebie is still up if you choose to use it to do so but any Just Some Lines image is fine 🙂

What could be more fitting for a milk carton than a couple of kitties 🙂 Well that’s what I thought when I saw Cat Love 2  by Just Some Lines.After scouring the internet for instructions I happened across one at A Load of Old Pickle but alas I don’t have a Hougie Board.Iwork in ‘old money’ on a Martha Stewart Scoring Board so I then found this one at Robin’s Creative Cottage which also included tips on how to make them in different sizes.So I’ve drawn inspiration from both and rolled it into one.And I managed it first go too!Thanks ladies for 2 great tuts.The box is made from linen effect card and I printed the image onto the same.After colouring them with Polychromos pencils I decided that altho’ it looked OK it wasn’t quite right (maybe it was the texture of the card) so out came the low odour oils thinners to save the day or the image in this case.Couldn’t be bothered to root around for my paper stumps so grabbed some cheapie cotton buds that were to hand.They work quite well on a smaller image like this plus there isn’t that much cotton wool on them to suck up all the thinners.They’re great for blending pastel pencils and detailed areas with chalk too.One thing’s for certain you wouldn’t want them near any part of your body!I layered up some spotty paper onto some red card and added panels on all 4 sides and 1 each side of the top too.I decorated the  binder clip I ‘won’ in a Christmas cracker (hoarding can be good sometimes) with more red card and  a contrasting spotty paper that were tiny scrap pieces.I added some ribbon and wooden buttons threaded with paper twine to finish.I’ve filled it with jelly beans to give to my DH.He’s not one for sweets and chocolate much (what’s wrong with him!!) but he does like his jelly beans… 🙂
