Meowy Christmas...a Pink Cat Challenge!

WHEW!! Finally...after the stockings were hung by the chimney with care...I headed to the basement to have some time with Pink Cat, before I tore out my hair... ok, bad rhyming I's late, cut me a break, ok??

I've been forcing myself to do housework and decorating all weekend, so I finally demanded some time for myself (it was really hard too, everyone was already in bed *wink* I'm real tough, huh?) and particpated in the Pink Cat Challenge over on Papercraft Planet.

I pretty much only go over there to check on the Pink Cat Thread there...I have so many other things to keep up with, I can't really handle much more! Ha ha ha ha...

Anyway - the challenge was a 1,2,3... 1 Ribbon, 2 background layers, 3 here we are...
See that fabric in the background?? That was my inspiration for the colors of this card. It's a pair of pants I picked up for my daughter at Kohl's the other, and a bit 'non-traditional' wintertime colors.
Now, check out my ribbon...yep, it's stamped. I used the snowflake images from Lily & Billy Winter, and stamped them on SU!'s 5/8" Chocolate Grosgrain ribbon, with Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream Ink. This is AWESOME for stamping on ribbon...I hope they come out with a true white with this formula as well...I just love it...look how crisp it comes out, plus the visibility! I added my 3 embellishments cute little bling.
It felt good to get out there and create...I also worked on coloring some images I purchased today from squigglefly... of course I learned about them from Lauren Meader, and fell in love, so I hope to be back maybe even tomorrow with a finished product with one of the images :)
Well, thanks for stopping by - back to work tomorrow...BLECH.
