Pink Cat Christmas Peeks Day 2!

WHEW!  Sorry I'm Late!
We're on to day 2 of peeks for the Pink Cat Release -- these images are BEYOND cute.  Today we have 2 more, one of Betty and Bobby on a Candy Cane being carried by little Gingerbread men.  I decided I wanted to make a gift tag -- so I trimmed my card stock to make a 3.5" x 3.5" card.  I stamped on Kraft CS, and got coloring.  I added some gold bling on Betty and Bobby, and the sentiment too -- and added some gold cord to attach it to my gift.
My next card is my favorite.  I looked at this fun image of Bobby dressed up like a gingerbread man, and saw my Nesties Labels 8 dies, and thought....Hmmmm...that shape would make a cool platter...So the platter of Bobby cookies was born!  I cut the CS just inside the fold using the largest die, and then used the next one smaller to emboss, and make the inner 'ridge' of the platter.

The 'cookies' were all colored with my copics, and 'dressed up' with some liquid applique, and crystal effects.  I even made the sentiment to look like a cookie with icing.

One last thing -- I don't know if you all saw my second post from yesterday about me being a finalist to win the Scrapbox from Splitcoaststampers.  I wasn't going to advertise this, because I wanted to do something special for a dear friend, but have decided that I should just make my intentions known.
My friend Laura (okiechic) on SCS is SO deserving of this AWESOME prize, and I was floored when I was chosen as a finalist, and she wasn't.  My intention is to have SCS send HER the scrapbox if I should win.

She is an INCREDIBLE Mom, and does such great things for her boys -- not to mention that I just ADORE her husband, one of the USMC's finest.  She's made lots of sacrifices for her husband's career, including moving to muggy Michigan, when she loved living in the desert ;).  Besides, now where ever they move with the Military, she'll ALWAYS have a place to create.  She's a real special gal, and I would LOVE if I could be given the opportunity to GIVE her this incredible gift.  She gives everyone else SO MUCH MORE, just by being her.

So , what so you say??  Before you go hop on over to the other Pink Cat blogs -- Stop by SCS and give Laura (through me) your vote???  Pretty Please?  I'm not a pretty beggar...you don't want to see me cry, do you? ;).

Thanks friends -- I appreciate the support!!!

You are a wonderful friend to give that Scrapbox to your girlfriend. I not only admire your intention to do so, I also liked your post on SCS. You are a lady after my own heart! I'm off to cast my vote...for YOU! Good luck!

Maria said...

Such cute projects, Tracey! I love the tag and the cookie platter filled with Billy gingerbread cookies. . .not sure I'd like to eat poor Billy but it's fun to look at anyway! LOL!

Awesome job as this month's guest designer. .


Mariska said...

Your cards are gorgeous sweetie. I love the kraft cs card, no Design Papers at all and still it's completely finished. Not being able to stop myself with adding new things most of the times I have the deepest respect for people who are able to keep things down to the basics and still have it look good. Thank you so much for joining us this release, I loved all your projects!
