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??

Have a wonderful weekend!

IO has a new artist in the house and I'm showcasing a few of her stamps today. 

To make the background I stamped the following stamps

I combined 

Now y'all......... hehe, that's funny coming from a Canuck isn't it?

So you all know I love texture....... So added some texture to my card using a couple of yummy embossing powders from Emerald Creek.

The "splotches" are Seth Apters Baked Texture in Deep Sea
I used Allure Fractured Ice in the middle of the flowers

I am LOVING these Embossing Powders.....Thick and Delicious!!!

Impression Obsession 2018 Summer Release Hop

Welcome to the Impression Obsession 2018 Summer Release Hop!
If you've come from Laura'a blog,  you are in the right place. If not head the the Impression Obsession blog  for the start of the hop

Is it BBQ time yet? We've had a few BBQ's over the winter, but sometimes I darned near lost my toes to frostbite waiting for the meat to be grilled. I think after having an ice storm less than a month ago, we're finally safe!!! I created this fun invitation using the Hamburger Image, which I coloured with Copic Markers. I created the background with the Gingham CAC. I love this huge background stamp and have used it many times over. Finally I finished up with the Let's BBQ sentiment  
Well, since I didn't think I should add glitter to this one, I added some NUVO drops to the seeds on the buns

We have some beautiful new stamps to share AND Gift Certificates to give away! The Blog Hop will be posted on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST May1st – May 3rd. Visit our fabulous IO Design Team’s blogs (only one comment per blog per day please) for a chance to win one of FOUR $25 Gift Certificates!
