Truly Scrumptious challenge

I've been having a play with my new Hero Arts cat stamps today, they are so much fun, and speaking about fun Truly Scrumptious has a new sketch and the theme is black, white and one other colour, so I just had to have a go.

As you can see, I choose orange for my 3rd colour. Not a colour I would of normally picked unless I was doing a Halloween card but I wanted to use the goldfish in his bowl so I had to use orange.
All the image stamps and the sentiment are all from the same Hero Arts set, available at Aries Crafts. You get loads of stamps in this set and the dog one I used yesterday (11 in the cats and 12 in the dogs) and they are both £11.99 each., and all my papers are downloads but I have no idea where I got them from. Sorry I really am rubbish at keeping note of where I get stuff from.
The flowers are punched with my usual SU and Dovecraft punches and also a tiny punch but don't know who makes it. I have also used a cute little bead cap that is also from Aries Crafts

I was having a nosey around the store today and ordered my usual Primas but also a cute mini stamp set for only £1.70!! and there is loads of different ones with funny saying too, will have to get more of them I think. And I also bought a small leaf punch which was only £2! and of course I got free postage as always so me thinks I got some good bargains today :) I also noticed they have the most gorgeous new huge Primas in and loads more that I would of bought if I had money to spend today. I realy do recommend you pop over and have a look, I am sure you will find something you like and they are always getting in new stock so if there's anything you would like but can't see on the website, let me know and I will ask them if they can get it. Ian and Lynne the owners are great at sourcing products and always at a good price too. If you do order, there is a comment box that you can write in, if you would be so kind as to write that you came from my blog then it would be much appreciated :)
Now that the card is done, I have one more thing to ask all my lovely visitors. Why have you not entered the Yellow Company Blog candy yet? Do you know they are giving one lucky winner all 3 sets of digi stamps, that's 10 images!! All you have to do is hop on over there and leave a comment, stick a link on your blog back to them, then sit back and wait to see if you win. I know if I was not on the design team, I would be over there. For all you older music lovers, they have the singers set (Elvis, Elton John, Buddy and Dusty) which are great fun to play with, for those of you who like something a bit different, there are the quirky birds and if you like prettty birds, there is the Eastern Birdies. So whaat you still doing here? Get your bum over there and enter. Oh and if you really want me to be your bestest friend, you could enter this weeks Baby Blue challenge as well ;)

Lora! First, thanks so much for your visit to my blog. I'm certainly honored. Secondly, your children are absolutely darling! What beautiful children! And finally, I've spent some time looking at your work and your cards are wonderful! I love how you match colors, your layouts are so pleasing, and most images you use (the several I looked at) are sweet and whimsical. Great stuff here Lora! Best, Curt
