Just Me And My Kitten

Hello i hope you and you family have had a fabulous weekend! Wow.. the new Magnolia Pet Collection stamps are just so adorable. Iam sure they will be posted soon on the store site for everybody to order. My card for today is created for 2 Challenge sites i am on... please check them out there are fabulous prized up to win just for making a card! The Copic Challenge blog wants you to color something "Wood" and on "Stamp With Fun" we want to see "Polka Dots" pretty easy right :-)

I know this pic looks kind of funny lol but it it was the best way to take a picture of the shimmer that i have created by using Shimmerz "Baby's Breath" spritz! I love it and i just spritzed of the entire card with flowers (focal point image not - i adered it to the card once dried)

Supplies: Tilda with Kitten from the New Pet Collection, Kitchen bench can be found in the Valentines line 2008
you can pre-order those stamps also over at 7kids College Fund
Cardstock/Design Paper: Stampin up (Very Vanilla, River Rock) Basic Grey (Wisteria)
Embellishments: Shimmerz (Baby's Breath Spritz), Prima Marketing (Bling Flourishes, Flowers) Making Memories (brads), Stampin up (Vanilla Taffeta), Fo Fa La (button), Hero Arts (Pearl stickers)
Tools: Nestabilities (Label 4), Martha Stewart (Doily Lace border punch)
Copic Sketch Markers used on bench: e55, e53, e39,e24,e31, yg91 and brown prisma color pencils. One more about the colors... i have found that the color B60 is really a wonderful color to use with the lilac soft lilac colors. I used the technique shown in my tutorial here with some darker colors (BV11) to color her dress in.
Quick Reminder, dont forget to pre-order the new StampClub SUMMER 2009 stamps. I assume the possibility to order the kit will be closing soon. You do not want to miss this great opportunity to get these cute stamps for an absolute fantastic price! (i almost forgot to order the Spring Kit, thats why iam mentioning it)

Nannieflash said...

Thanks Claudia for letting me know about the Summer Club, Im still concerned as I carnt find whether the order went through or not, as although I have my confirmation from them, I carnt find where it went through so Im wondering if it didnt, I have emailed them but whether they will get back to me is another story.
Roses are strange plants, mine arnt in the best place, but they do seem to struggle and I get a few buds on them each year, but they suffer from all the rust and black spot that others do. Anyway love, love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
