Swing By for Some Pink Cat Sneak Peeks!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

I hope you all are having a nice weekend so far! Jason, Izzy and I are in Kansas City right now, getting ready for Jason's grandmother's 90th birthday party. I am so excited! I really think it will be a lot of fun!

We had a really nice trip in. Izzy didn't seem to mind the drive too much. She mainly giggled at Tuxy's discomfort and tried to pet him and poke him every chance she got! Poor Tuxy was so happy to get out of the car by the time that we got here that he was actually doing laps around the yard!!!

Izzy also was able to visit her friend Lucy yesterday!!! Lucy turned two and invited us to ride the carousel at the mall with her and then have lunch. It was so much fun, although Izzy was not too sure about the carousel part. She kept saying, "No, no!" every time I asked her if she wanted to ride it and when we finally tried it, she dissolved down into tears. We eventually wound up on one of the benches with her clinging to me for dear life. Oh well, better luck next time! LOL!

So, have I built up enough suspense? Are you anxious now to see a sneak peek of one of the new stamps being released Monday at Pink Cat Studio? Hmmm, should I let you off the hook and show you? Alrighty, I honestly can't wait any longer either!!! Here she is Miss Lily on a swing!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG!!!!! Isn't she the cutest ever!!!! I just love all the flowers on the ropes that Melissa drew and the branch is absolutely divine!!! It was hard to make just one project with this amazing image, I had so many ideas!!! I started this card by stamping Lily on the swing from Enchanted Lily by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored her in with my copics. I then drew in the rest of the background with my copic multiliner and colored it in with my copics as well. Next, I cut out a piece of maroon and a piece of pink card stock with my oval nesties and mounted my image on top. I then layered on some embossed designer paper along with some maroon and pink card stock. For the corners, I added some suede leaves I had that came in a strip, punched out some small flowers out of maroon card stock and DP and added pearls. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment, also from the Enchanted Lily set, cut it out with a piece of maroon card stock using my nesties and placed some tiny butterflies I created with a heart punch and some pearls in the corner. I just love the way the Lily actually looks like she is swinging back and forth across the page! A perfect card for a little girl or an adult!

Now, it is time to check out all the other DT's awesome creations!! And can you say, blew me away!!! Wow, wow, wow!!! They are amazing so make sure you stop by and give them some love!
And did you see that we have a guest designer for February!!! It is the amazingly talented Suzanne Dean!!! I am so excited that she agreed to guest design this month! All of her work is so beautifully colored and well put together!

Well that is it for me today!! Tune in tomorrow for another sneak peek of the Enchanted Lily set and don't forget the whole set will be available for purchase on Monday, February 23rd! Thanks as always for stopping by! Smiles.

This is gorgeous! I love the leaf embellies, and the way you drew in the rest of the tree. Totally wish I'd thought of that! Out of curiosity, what color of copic did you use for the sky and ground?
