You're the Purr-fect Gift!
Hello!! So sorry I've been MIA this week - can you believe my entire family ended up sick with this nasty virus going around? It was a pretty icky weekend - followed by a couple of crazy catching up days - my poor hubby even got sick and he VERY rarely gets sick. I am happy to report that we all seem to be on the mend - just in time for Fall Break - so the kids and I are enjoying a couple of days off from school and then preparing for Halloween tomorrow. We are gonna go see High School Musical 3 today - glad I am feeling better - not sure I could have set thru it feeling sick - LOL!! I'm kidding - they're cute movies and I should be thankful that my kids are into movies like that. Anywho - I do have a card to share with you today - it felt good to create today - my mojo was all congested with my sinuses and I am feeling the creative juices flowing again. This card is for today's MFT sketch challenge over on SCS - you can view Frances's awesome sketch here. I just got this Stephanie Fizer "Peppermint Cats" image over the weekend and am so happy to finally get to play with it today! I colored my image in with Copics - I drew the fence in myself with a ruler and a Copic multiliner pen and added some white dots with a gel pen for a snow-y sky. I highlighted the stars with some Stickles and then added some Liquid Applique to the cat's hat. The sentiment is from the Peppermint Cats set as well. The holly was done using the Bazzill In Stich'z Christmas templates set. I am telling you - these things are FUN - and really not that difficult either. I've been using just regular ol' DMC embrodiery floss with mine - saves a bit of money rather than buying the Bazzill stuff and there are SO many more color choices too! The polka dot paper is an old sheet of American Crafts Christmas paper I had in my stash and I embossed my blue background using the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. Thanks so much for stopping by - I can't wait to show you all the fun stuff I have been working on for next week - we've got some AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME Hanna Stamps releases for next week and I may even have an extra treat for you next week too...hee hee...have a wonderful Thursday!!
