June Clarity Challenge entry

Nearly at the end of the month and I find myself posting my entry to the Clarity Challenge on the last day again!  I did start early this time, getting all the artwork done, but didn't get round to mounting it until the last day.
The letters and boxes were from the wonderful Letterbox kit, this time teamed with the ballon stamp to form "Happy".  The tree stamp is also Clarity.  I have created my own stencils for the undulating hills and fluffy clouds, and was quite pleased with the overall effect.

Here is a close-up of the clouds:

Pop-up Fathers Day card

 This is the Father's Day card I made for my wonderful Dad.  
I've done a few pop-up box cards, but this is my favourite, so fitting that it is for my Dad.  Of course it had to include a Siamese (front row, left)!  Each cat was individually stamped and coloured, using masks made from post-its.
I'm still limited with shades of brown but generally managed to create a menagerie of cats!

I'm entering this card in the Papermill challenge, as the card was made using card from the Papermill.  This was my first purchase from the Papermill, and I have been very impressed.
