Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

Woo hoo!   This is the first time I've participated in the SPARKS Challenge.   Go here if you'd like to play along! I thought it'd be pretty cute to add the wine glass to the kitty image!   Two of my favorite things....cats and wine, lol!   I cut the little paws with my X-acto knife so that the wine glass fit right in there....had to finish the wine off with a little Glossy Accents as well!

Be sure to check out Paper Smooches!!

I've also got a card for my daughter's birthday this Sunday.  Love how this one turned out.   The banner is from Tribalation and was just curved on the block.   The balloon is vellum colored with Copics and looks really cool and translucent in real life.

My girlie is having 12 of her nearest and dearest friends over for an ice cream sundae party on Saturday and I have bunches of work to finish, cupcakes to bake and rooms to clean in order to get ready!   Wish me luck!!!

Inky Antics Challenge #4

Hi everyone!   I missed the last Newton's Nook Inky Antics challenge, so I was happy to have a bit of time today to create something for challenge #4!  Go here to play along for yourself!!!

I looked at the sketch and thought I'd use my Cameo to cut a shape to use instead of the circle.   I love the snowflake IRL - I covered it with Shimmer Spray, so it sparkles and shines!   I used Newton's Antics to stamp and fussy cut the cute kitty.   I thought I'd add some tinsel twine for the mischievous little guy to play with....and some google eyes, of course!   I really wanted a more "seasonal" greeting for this card, and since I don't yet have any of the Newton's Nook holiday sets, I handwrote the word winter and selectively inked the rest of the greeting to make it all come together!  

Hope everyone is having a great week!   The weekend is almost here....yay!!
