Craft is something that belongs to you in a way that nothing else does. You may share your passion with someone else, and provide inspiration for each other, but at it's very core it is a private joy that feeds your soul. It is there for you on the sunny days, the rainy afternoons and in the middle of the night when your worries are keeping you awake. At the same time it can be restful, meditative and exciting.

Number 14 in the black and white challenge. I had to double layer the ribbon at the top and the bottom because it is so sheer that you could not see the green in it at all. The panel under the cat panel is handmade paper and was a perfect match for the sea foam green ink that I used with the stamp. I used a corner punch turned upside down to create the scalloped edge. This was surprisingly difficult because the handmade paper is so soft that it wanted to mold itself to the punch rather than be cut and there was a lot of tidying up to do with scissors =^..^=
