Grinning Like a Cheshire Cat!!!!

And WHY am I grinning you may ask???? Actually I think it's more than a grin, I think it a Great big Ginormous toothy goofy grin!!!!!!!

I have been lucky with felines this month! I have been busting at the seams to share my totally exciting news with you............ I will be designing for PINK CAT STUDIO for the next year!!!
MEOW!!!! How exciting is that???

I was selected along with a totally talented group of ladies, whose blogs and artwork are simply delicious! I have added links to their blogs on my sidebar. Please take time to have a look at what they are doing, it's simply amazing. Melissa sure must have had her work cut out for her choosing a team and I feel blessed to be a part of it.

You are going to cough up a furball when you see the sneak peeks for Melissa's latest illustrations. I know I'll be chasing my tail until my new rubber arrives!! Perhaps i'll just have to have a little "nip" to keep me content until I can play!

I was So excited that I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to create this card to accompany my post. ( Do you think there is a Night owl Design team calling my name? lol)
The Basic Grey Figgy Paper was the inspiration for my creation! I love the little dotted paper and decided that the pattern was small enough to paper piece her coat and snowy's hatband. I coloured the rest of the image with copics to compliment the colours in the Designer Paper and Sponged in some Cool Caribbean ink around the main image.

Liquid applique sprinkled with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter adds some dimension to the images, as does the white gel pen highlights to the buttons, eyes and Cheeks oh my!
I would like to thank Nesties Square, SU! Ribbon and a Martha Stewart Border punch for their part in today's creation...............nope catnip hasn't gone to the head........ I am just very very excited, which for me sometimes translates into a little bit of SILLY!!!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend. I can't wait to share more Pink Cat creations with you soon!

    I have been enjoying reading thru your blog the last few days since the DT announcement. How excited was I today when I went to
    SCS to look up a tutorial I had been waiting months to teach my Stampers Club on Snow Globes. I saw it back like in April or May. Wow I saw your name and thought well I know who she is!!!!

    You are one awesome stamper Vicki and I am glad I have had the pleasure to be introduced to your stamptabulous work!!!
