Pretty Kitty

I love this kitten stamp set.  It's been a long time since Stampin' Up has had a really cute dog and cat stamp set.  And this year, they have both in the catalog!  I love the images on both but decided to just get the cat set .... at least for now!!   It is called Pretty Kitty and you can find it on page 101 in the Annual Catalog just below the dog set, Bella & Friends.

This is a card we made in Stamp Club using 3 of the 5 kitty images from the set.  I let each person pick which image they wanted to use.  I used the Circle Framelits to die cut the circles on the Watermelon Wonder card stock and Shimmery White for the stamped images because I wanted to watercolor.  The Misti came in handy for this card.  You can position all 3 images and stamp at the same time.  The card base and the little hearts (from the Mini Treat Bag die) are Smoky Slate.  I used Smoky Slate and my Aqua Brush to watercolor the kittens and Cajun Craze for the flower pot.  The rest of the coloring was done with markers.  The top Watermelon layer is raised with dimensionals.  This is where the new Dimensional Strips come in handy!

This Wisteria Wonder card is basically the same as the one above except when I made it, I had not gotten the Circles thinlits so used made rectangle openings for the kittens.   I used the Swirly Bird stamp set for the circles and the little bows are from the Mini Treat Bag die.

We had a bit of a warm up today!  The temps got up in the 50s and it is supposed to stay above freezing tonight!!  Yay!!  My friends in Texas are going to be getting some of the bad weather though.  Ashley drove to Dallas Saturday and said the further north she'd go, the colder it got!  Our driveway and cul-de-sac was iced over Saturday.  Sonny told me he was going to go check on the boat (in storage a couple of blocks from our house).  Well, he was gone about 2 hours when he called to tell me he had been slipping and sliding in our driveway and in the circle of our cul-de-sac.  He slid off the driveway and the road in a couple of places, almost taking out our neighbors mailbox!  He finally got out of his truck and walked back to the house to get a bag of sand and a shovel!  He said the driveway and street were a sheet of ice.

Meanwhile, I was up in my craft room oblivious to what was going on outside!  Here is one of the cards I made.

I used the thinlet from Chalk Talk and the stamp is from Fabulous Four.  The rest of the materials I used are below.

Sunday I helped Marianne with her first ever Stampin' Up Workshop.  Her neighbor had a party and there were 7 gals there.  They all ordered quite a bit of product and we had a great time.  We made a sour cream container that we filled with candy, a Mini Treat Bag (see below) and two cards.  I should have taken pictures of the cards but I forgot!!

Sour Cream Container - filled with Tootsie Rolls

Mini Treat Bag - all pieces (except twine and paper clip) are included in the Mini Treat Bag Die!!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

We're getting ready for the Big Storm this week!  Temps have been dropping for the past couple of days.  Tonight it is supposed to dip into the teens with the high only 32 tomorrow.  Snow and ice are predicted to start in the early evening and last 2-3 days.  I have already canceled my Stamp Club for Tuesday and I am hoping I will be able to have everyone come on Thursday.  Tomorrow I will be bundled up to go play bridge and then take my mom to her doctor's appointment before the storm hits.

I wanted to share the Valentine's that I sent to the grandkids last week.

I printed off these wrappers and wrapped boxes of candy that I got at the Dollar Store

I used the Mini Treat Die to make little bags that I filled with candy.

More Dollar Store finds - Valentine pencils.  I used the smaller panel of the Mini Treat Die to make these cute little pencil holders.

We had a pretty quiet Valentine's.  Sonny and I went out for breakfast and then to the grocery store.  Later that evening, we went over to Marianne and Greg's so I could help Marianne get ready for her first workshop.  We took a break and went out for Italian food.

I got some GREAT news today!  Remember this sketch I did for MDS Monday's 100th Sketch Challenge?  Well, I was notified on Sunday that I was a WINNER!!  They picked two top winners and I was told in my email that mine was chosen by a landslide!  So excited!  I win a MDS download (value $9.95).  I had a whole list that I had to decide between.  I have so many of the downloads that sometimes I have a hard time finding ones I don't have!!  But I decided on a punch and several embellishments that I didn't have yet.  Check out the other winners here.

How do you like my new Blog Banner?  I had fun designing a new one on Sunday.

Mini Treat Bags

I really love these Mini Treat Bags and they are so easy to make and decorate.  I think they would be perfect for a little Valentine goodie!

This one I made at Allison's Stamp-a-ganza last month.  It uses the DSP from Sale-a-Bration.

This one is one that I made to give to my Club gals last month with a few candies in it.  I used the DSP Back to Black in the Annual Catalog.

I am feeling better but decided to go to the doctor just to make sure it wasn't anything serious.  I hate hearing the rumbling in my chest.  He listened and said it was just a touch of bronchitis but mostly this bug that is going around.  He said it was the worst he has seen in ten years!  He felt like I was on the road to recovery and didn't need an antibiotic unless I get to feeling worse in the few days.  Today was the first day that I didn't have to pop a couple of Alieve to get through the day.  By evening, I'm starting to fade but not like I was over the weekend.

The Weekly Deals (good until next Tuesday) are below.  My Hostess Code this month is:
