It’s all so Black & White

This is a bit of a quick extra kind of post. My new stamps arrived from Katzelkraft and I really wanted to stamp out that little jazzy looking cat. It reminds me of 1950s style.
I didn’t go to the craft room; I just had one black ink pad, one acrylic block, the stamps and some plain white greetings cards.  
I decided that, as I had made the cards, I may as well share them with you. There is plenty time for more interesting projects to follow.
I started by stamping out rows of the little cat (because it made me happy), but then I decided to do one or two black and white, clean and simple, cards.
A few simple elements come together to make some fun cards. As I am always forgetting about birthdays and special dates, I often need a card quickly and with no time to get to the shops.
these are ideal.
Not that I think I will need very many “Get well soon” cards for cats but it is my favourite. I guess it will do for humans who have upset tummies too...

Simple and effective but I expect I will be heading for some colours tomorrow.
