Pucker Up!!!!

Everybody needs a good kiss once in awhile. Passionate kisses, the one's that give you that dip in your stomach and make your toes curl, sweet kisses from a messy faced child, a quick peck on the cheek from a dear friend, even sloppy slurpy puppy kisses can give you a warm fuzzy feeling (I just love the smell of puppy breath!). Basically, this form of affection is one of my favourites! There is a level of intimacy that a kiss brings; that just speaks to our basic need to be loved~!

Hugs are great too, but a kiss can just be the sweetest form of expression to me~! They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and although Perl may not be the most ravishing creature you have ever laid eyes upon, she looks like she could use a good kiss and a hug!

This is one of the latest Torrente images from Stampotique. In my opinion, Daniel's art just keeps getting more and more interesting!!!! I made this card for today's featured stamper challenge over on SCS, loosely basing my sketch on a card that I found in Jamie's Gallery.

The DP is from a Glitter Stack by DCWV, with a Real Red and Basic Black Base. I coloured with Copics, used a Prima, SU Big Eyelet and Wide Grosgrain to finish the image.

Thought I'd include a couple of my Favourite images from the Willie Nelson Concert I recently attended. Would I want to give Willie a Kiss??? Not really, a hug would probably suffice in this I fulfilled a goal of seeing him perform and was pleasantly surprised by he and Ray Price. Enjoy the pictures and watch for some Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks coming up this week!!!!

Melissa is running a contest over on her BLOG. Add the cute Blinkie that you see on my side bar for the Lily Release and you could win a set of these fabulous Stamps!!!!

Happy Stamping!

  4. Now that's a fabulous card! If I show it to DH, I wonder if I'd get a kiss!?
    I didn't know you're a fan of Willie Nelson! We saw him years ago at Oklahoma City, shook his hand too .... but you're right .. no kissy. hahahaha

  6. New Stampotique!? I am not bitter, that's not my style.


  7. Aww, that image is so scary that it's cute! I love the image!! Very funky! Love the dp that you used and the touch of red. Matches the image really nicely!

    I don't really like puppy breath, especially mine! LOL! My dog needs breath mints! I wouldn't want to kiss Willie Nelson either. . .yeah, a hug would suffice.
