Birthday Cat


I have a dear friend with a Birthday tomorrow!!

I wanted to create her a special card because she is a wonderful person!
I sure hope she enjoys it.

I stamped the Birthday Cat image with Memento Ink in Desert Sand as I wanted to have a predominantly lineless image. I actually like the tan colour peeking out from the grey as is gives a little extra dimension to the kitty. I coloured him with Copic Marker...mainly in the C series- 1, 3 and 5 and aded a touch of colour in his hat. The background paper and the sentiment sticker is from photoplay. Isn't it scrumptious??  

If you like this stamp, you can purchase it a discount by using my code!!!


Have a wonderful weekend!

Impression Obsession Thursday Designer Challenge-Foodie Fun




Good Morning! 

Our challenge today is to create a card with an edible image! 
Does that mean you can eat the image or just that the image is of something edible ?? You decide, but I think these Strawberries look amidst good enough to eat!!!

I created this card with the  Farm Fresh Stamp and Die set.

Be sure to link up your creation on the IO Blog for a chance to win a gift certificate. We can all use new stamps right?



Check out the DT creations, I know you’re going to love them !!! Here’s who is playing today;
