Bonjour... Another sunny morning down here but Tristan is coming down with a cold again!!! I just hope he's not going to pass it over to the all family again but fat chance!!! He's been sitting on the couch watching his favorite movie twice -already- "the Nightmare Before Christmas"... Some people say that their little ones are into Teletubbies or else and I can say that mine is into Jack Skellington and Hoogey Boogey! lol... He's also having a "I don't want to go to bed phase" at the moment and he's been up again really late so I suppose he's feeling really tired too! At least he won't put up a fight for his nap...
I have been working on some new Pink Cat Studio creations -which I cannot show you just yet!!- so not much time to make any other cards but I still manage to make this one with the cute little pirate from Sugar Nellie... I used more papers from Crate paper again - I just love them!!!- and kept the all colour scheme to colour the image. I still don't know who it's going to be for so I will add a sentiment or something else once I have decided! Hope you like it...

To enter the contest, go to the Pink Cat Studio blog http://www.pinkcatstudio.blogspot.com/ and leave a comment in the contest post and suggest a name or two for this darling. If you like a name that someone else has suggested then please mention that in your comment. It’s okay to comment more than once if you come up with another idea at a later time but you will only be entered into the draw once.
We will chose her new name taking into consideration all of your suggestions.
The winner of the free stamps will not be chosen based on the name they suggest but by a random draw so that everyone who participates has an equal chance to win. The contest will end on February 12th at midnight EST and the winner will be announced on the Pink Cat Studio blog during the new release day of February 17th. The winner will receive her choice of 1 stamp sheet from the entire line including the new February releases.
Have fun and we can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Now... Who says Cats and dogs couldn't get along... This cute stamp is from Inky Antics and I so love it... I did try to make it a quick card but noooooooo... Took me quite a long time to make this one... The paper is from Cherry Arte and it is a doublesided one. Again I tried to use more scraps of cardstock too but the more I try the more there is to go back in the drawer!!!

I think I'm getting the hang of those "Quick Cards".. lol... Here is one of the little frogs from the same set as the Puppy. I have used thhis gorgeous paper by Crate Paper - so gorgeous that it took me ages to get it out and use it up!- And I got some scraps of cardstock and some rusty red ribbon to match the stripes on it. Again I got the nestabilities out and added some brads to finish... Et voila...

Last night I have managed to make a card in 45mns -max- which is a record for me who usually spend ages on a card!!! I am such a perfectionist that it's got to be as I want it to say that it's finished and I'm happy with it!!! And most of the time I go back to them and add or remove something... So for this "Quick Card", I have used some really cute stamps from Missy B -there are some very cute monkeys and frogs too in this set... And I sooooooooo love this mad looking puppy -put a smile on my face everytime I look at it! The paper is from DCWV, I used my nestabilities, added some ribbon and brads et voila... I'm actually happy with it like it is!!! lol... And I hope you'll like it too...

My lovely "step mum in law" asked me to make her a baby card... I had to use this cute little tweet from the new set from Pink Cat Studio -if you haven't got yours yet, go and check it out because it's too cute-... I watercoloured the image and added some stickles on the wings too. I used some paper from Pebbles inc and combine it with brown -yes again, lol...- added some flowers, ribbon and brads et voila.

I think I'm going to go and enjoy this little ray of sunshine... Have a great day and enjoy it too if you're lucky enough to have a bit of sunshine.

Last night I had time to play with the Magnolia images that Kim has kindly sent to me... I have a nephew who loves fishing so this image was very welcome - well any Magnolia images are very welcome, lol... - How cute is that little Edwin!? The papers I used are from Crate paper and I have used some scrap card I had left in my drawer... And to add a little bit of brightness to this card I have attach this cute little sun - also from Magnolia - I know my nephew is going to love it and he's the sort of little boy who keeps everything you send him! Aaaaaaaaaaawww bless... I hope you like it too... Et Voila...

Pink Cat’s Favourite Things
My comfy and cozy giant ______1_______.
My ______2_________ from which I’m fed.
My super soft fuzzy _____3_______, these are a few of my favourite things.
My ____4________ that I love to hide in.
My _____5________ where I sit with a grin.
My _____6________ that also can sing, these are a few of my favourite things.
My trendy ____7________ that I fill with catnip.

When my clothes cling,
When I’m feeling sad.
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

So I went to the Glitter Pot on Saturday and Bryan was such a great help there, so thank you soooooooooooo much. I got some fabulous papers and the scallop circles nestabilities - they're sooooooooooo great and I'll definitely will get the oval and rectangle ones too!!! I managed to stay away from the rubber stamps too - although I had a quick peek at the Whipper Snapper ones! Sorry -Kim- I haven't had the time to take piccies of the goodies I bought... I should also receive an order from Capture the Magic today!! YAY...
Obviously I didn't get the time to post any card this week end - been working really hard yesterday all day "creating" but I can't show them to you yet!!! The one I've got to share with you is a Bella - I think she's savvyshopabella- and she has the most amazing butt ever! Wish mine was like that... :o( I popped her and the sentiment on dimensionals. The papers I used are from Basic Grey, added some ribbon, buttons and brads. Et Voila our Bella du jour... Hope you like her...

I have to show you something which arrived in the post today... The lovely Fiona sent me this beautiful acetate card after I saw the one she made on her blog... The picture is very poor and doesn't do the card any justice at all but it's gorgeous!!! The acetate has been beautifully stamped all over and the position of the flowers are so pretty too... Thank you ever so much Fiona for the little bit of spring you sent me, it really made my day... You can view those gorgeous acetate cards on Fiona's blog...
Hope everyone is having a great day and fantastic evening for those who are out tonight!!!

Anyway I was cutting Ethan and Aidan's hair the other morning and he was really willing to sit on the stool so he had the chop too... Ethan always put gel in his hair - never goes out without his hair done!!! - so Tristan always brings the gel to me to do his hair! So here he is now and do NOT be fool by this cute little face, he's a right little pickle!
Hope you have a great evening... Tomorrow might even be a brighter day. Let's just hope!

This card was made with one of the new set from Hanna stamps. Isn't she just too cute! I chose some very girly colours and kept it again pretty bassic. The paper is from Daisy Bucket design and although it's a christmas design I love it for other cards too. I've added some ribbons, glitter to her tshirt and bow and 2 corners attached with a brad. Hope you like it.

The card for today is definitely perfect for today's weather!!! It is another of my latest Bellas and I just love her! She so cute and gracious on her skates... I have kept it pretty simple but I really like the way it turned out. I have used liquid appliaue for the fur on her coat - she's got to keep warm too! - and some stickles for a bit of sparkles! Do you like it?
