Skiing Cat

As I post this card, it is 75 degrees outside but since this is how I image winter is like in most of the country, this is my Happy Winter card for today. This is the card that I going to send for my Glitter Girls and Guys Yahoo Group Card of the Month. The main image is from Cat's Pajamas. The sentiment is from DRS Designs (I think!). For the small amount of coloring that I did, I used gel pens. The sentiment was stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue.

Crafty Gals January Challenge

This month, Heather posted the following January challenge "As mentioned, I am expecting my first baby at the end of February. We're pretty excited to celebrate this new addition and new stage in our lives. My challenge to you for the Crafty Girls January challenge is to celebrate NEWNESS doesn't have to be a new baby...perhaps it's a New Year, new marriage, new job, new friend, etc. In addition, use the opportunity to try a out a new technique (or template, something you haven't tried before).

I decided to use one of my newest Hero Arts/Operation Write Home stamp sets. I used the "All The Time" set. I love to use clocks, so I was excited to get this set.

I used SU! Not Quite Navy for the card base. I mounted the DSP (SU! Letters from Santa) on Chocolate Chip card stock. I took another piece of Chocolate Chip card stock and used the scalloped punch. I stamped the clock image onto a piece of Crumb Cake card stock with Not Quite Navy and cut it out and mounted it with Stampin Dimensionals.
