A Little Sneaky Peeky of Pink Cat!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope all of you are having a great weekend! Jason's Grandmother's party was so much fun yesterday. My mother-in-law pulled out a whole bunch of old pictures and everyone was looking through them and reminiscing. It was so educational and exciting to hear all the stories being told. I just can't believe all the things that Jason's Grandmother has accomplished. She was actually a teacher in a one room school!!! Wow! She would have to come in every morning and light the fire in the grate so that the 10 children she taught (grades kindergarten through 8th) could be warm! And all of this she did the year after she graduated high school!!! Simply amazing!

Izzy had the best time as well. She played with all of her cousins and got to read lots and lots of books. She even conned great-grandma into reading her a couple. Although I am not quite sure who had more fun at doing that! Then we had a nice little dinner together last night and headed out to Archivers with my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law. The perfect Saturday!

Speaking of crafting and stamping, I know a little stretch there, lol, it has come to the part of my post that you all have been waiting for. Drum roll please!!!!! The Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks!!!!! Today I am showing you two more creations I made with two of the other fairies in the Enchanted Lily set that will be released tomorrow!!

My first card features the new stamp with the adorable Lily sitting on a mushroom, holding a ladybug! This is actually the card I gave to Jason's grandmother yesterday.

Isn't she just the sweetest sitting on her little mushroom! I love the expression the the ladybug's face as well! So, so adorable!!! Anyways, I started this card by stamping Lily on the mushroom from the Enchanted Lily set by Pink Cat studio on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I added touches of glitter pen to her underwings to give it some sparkle. I then mounted her on some red and black card stock cutting out the corners so that I could add some rhinestone stickers. I then layered on some black and white polka dot DPs I believe from Pine Cone Press along with the remainder of my black and red card stock. I punched out my lady bug using my new Martha Stewart punch, attached it to the upper corner and created a trail with some more rhinestone stickers. To finish the card off, I stamped the sentiment on white card stock, mounted it on red and curled it with a pencil to give it a more whimsical feel. I really think Jason's Grandmother liked it!

My second card for today features the new Lily with frog stamp from Enchanted Lily. I just love how Lily is pointing her wand at the frog, and I imagine her hoping for a prince! Here she is!

How can you resist that adorable little frog!!! EEEEE! He is just so cute! and I love the lily pad and flower! Can you say gorgeous!!! So, I started this card by stamping Lily with frog from the new Enchanted Lily set by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I added lots of glitter pen to this one so that she would sparkle (too bad you can't see it in the picture). I then mounted her on a piece of lime green paper and a piece of dark green paper I cut out with my nesties. I turned her at an angle on top of my Basic Grey DP and layered on pink and green card stock. I added two lengths of pink stitched ribbon and tied a bow on either side of my image. For the sentiment, I stamped it on white card stock and mounted it on top of a piece of green I cut out with my nesties and a DP flower I used my Cricut to create. To finish the card off and to make sure she had enough sparkle, I added two rhinestone flowers to the sentiment and three bella baubles to the corner! I really hope that Lily's wish of a prince comes true!!!

Now it is time for you to go see the other DT member's fabulous creations!! Weren't yesterday's unbelievable and today's will surely knock your socks off as well!!

Well, tomorrow is the big day!!! I not only get to show you the last Lily in the Enchanted Lily set, but it is also release day!!! I am so excited!! Thanks as always for stopping by! Smiles!

What a life Jason's grandmother must have had. Can you imagine running a class with kids from all different ages on that age... I'm glad to hear you all had such a good time. And now let me talk about your creations... these are just so gorgeous sweetie!! We picked just about the same colours for our cards so let me tell you... I love the colours you picked :). Gorgeous colouring, and I am for sure going to use the sketch for the frog Lily, love that design. Have a great Sunday sweetie (or what is left of it in your part of the world) see you back tomorrow!!

Hey Janna! Glad to hear Grandma had a awesome birthday. Wow, she accomplished a lot in her life and already a teacher at that wonderful!

It's so nice that Izzy was able to hang out with her cousins! Kids grow up so quickly...because we moved to California, my kids have not seen their cousins for such a long time and have grown apart. How sad.

I love both your cards. . .the colors are STUNNING on your first card. ..the ladybug trail is awesome. .you colored the images so beautifully too!

Your second card is AWESOME. .beautiful colors, the shading and highlights are perfect . .I love the ribbon placements. Beautiful DP too! As always, your cards are so beautiful to look at!!
