Coco Cat Birthday!

Happy Tuesday!!

Have you missed me?!!  LOL  I can't believe I haven't posted anything since last Wednesday.  I've been so busy!  I had a garage sale on Saturday and sold a ton of my stamping stuff - it felt good to purge and create clean space.  I need to do that more often, even if to make more room for new stuff.  Right?

The ABC Design Team Fearless Leader, Justine, has posed a new challenge for all of us to play along with!! We would so love to see what your interpretation is for the theme "Spring is Blooming All Over!"  Really, these challenges are totally subject to interpretation, so if this sparks some inspiration in you, we'd love to see what you come up with!  All you have to do is create a project and link it up by Sunday, March 28th to Mr. Linky, located HERE.  There's a $10 ABC Toys & Crafts gift certificate for one random winner.  How easy is that?!!

When I heard what the theme was, I immediately thought of the new Helz Cuppleditch/Stampavie image that I received from Julie (owner of ABC Toys & Crafts) - Coco Cat Flowers.  Isn't she just the cutest ever?!!  I stamped her on cream card stock and cut her out using my Square Classic Nestabilities.  I then colored her with my Copic Markers.  I won't bore you with the rest of the details of how I constructed the card, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

STAMPS:  Coco Cat Flowers (Helz Cuppleditch/Stampavie), Birthday Basics (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Pixie Dust Chalk Ink (VersaMagic)
PAPER:  Kraft CS (Papertrey Ink), Vintage Cream CS (Papertrey Ink), Green At Heart DP (Basic Grey), Raspberry Fizz CS (Papertrey Ink)
ACCESSORIES:  Copic Markers, New Leaf Twill (Papertrey Ink), Janome Sew Mini, Scalloped Border Punch (SU), 3-D Dots (EK Success), Tag Die Cut (Spellbinders), Square Classic Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug

We're in the last few days of the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team competition, so if you're in need of any of the new Nestabilities, the new Stampavie images, new Slice products, or even some new Copic Markers, then Julie's your girl!!  She stocks a fabulous array of products that come as close to a one stop shop as I've ever seen.  Her service is second to none, and I tell you this with first hand knowledge, but wouldn't say it if I didn't believe it.  Need new stuff?  Then click on the blinkie below, and that will take you directly to ABC Toys & Crafts.  Shop to your heart's content!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll be back later on this week with some of the other cards I made during my "stamping in my jammies" session.  Lots of goodies to share!!

You know that I am "canine" all the way, but I have to say this kitty image is pretty freakin' cute. Kind of looks like Maggie, lol! Beautiful coloring and I love the layout. Great job on the challenge!
