Grab your favorite drink...

New Rubber Release from Pink Cat Studio

New Challenge and Sponsor for CSAYL

If you hop on over to the Color Me Copic blog today, you can check out the tutorial that I wrote on how to color a wood floor. This is the card that I used as my example...


Today there are 5 new sets being released over at Pink Cat Studio! Melissa took some of her most popular digital Christmas images and turned them into rubbah! Here are some of the samples that I made when these images were first introduced as digitals.

Penguin on a candy cane swing - adorable, no?During an insomniac moment at 3am, I decided to use the owl image as a template. I ended up with a super cute hand-stitched coffee cozy. Insomnia...don't knock it 'til you try it! I've come up with some of my favorite things when the rest of the world is sleeping :-)

What Pink Cat Studio release would be complete without Lily?

Here she is in Candyland... And check out the cute snowman.
I love that he's not just three circles stacked together! That Melissa is just so clever!

Here's a close up shot of the main image.
For the "bling" requirement this week, I added diamond Stickles to the snow and then dumped on some Doodlebug Sugar Coating to give it some dimension.

Wowza! I think I'm all done. Copic guest contributor, Pink Cat release, InStyle sponsorship for CSAYL....yep I've covered it all. Thanks bunches for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
