I ordered a couple of stamp sets from a new company to me. It is Pink Cat Studio in Vancouver, BC. I was thrilled with the service and the sweet personal response from the owner. She told me to allow 2 weeks for delivery and they arrived in less than a week. Not too shabby coming through customs! Their stamps are more cutsie, and that is something I do not own much of. My original idea when I saw this set, was to use it for a pet sympathy card. I may still use the images for that purpose. I have seen some beautiful "Loss of Pet" sayings, I just have to find the right one. In the set you get this sweet doggie, a kitty, frog and an owl fairy. There is also a large mushroom, swirls and a couple of great sayings! Here is a link to the online store. http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/ Feel free to tell her I sent you! You can earn points for referrals. Not my goal, but it is nice to offer incentive. The name of this adorable set is "Fairy Friends".
The papers I used to create this card are from the Basic Grey, Granola collection. Even the distressed white that I stamped the doggie onto, is from the paper pack! I used Stampin Up! soft suede cardstock as an accent color. I think it worked well with this dp. My images were stamped in Memento, tuxedo black. All images were colored with pencils and OMS. I glittered up the dogs wings and some of the stars near the sentiment. Clear lacquer was applied to the doggies eyes, nose and bone. I am beginning to think I am addicted to piercing. Oh, and I know I am totally addicted to Dewdrops! I added a couple of ribbons for extra texture.
Since I do not travel well, I am always thrilled when my DH takes a little time to go off on his own. Yesterday, DH and DS went to the Atlantic City Air Show. Since the temps were 90 plus, I did not even think that this trip would be for me. They took all the precautions, hats, good sunscreen, light colors etc. Ha, they even rented umbrella and chairs from the guy on the beach. I am ready to melt some butter because I now have 2 lobsters! Silly guys. Me thinks there was more time taking pictures out from under the umbrella then there was using sun safety! Glad it isn't me!
