Hi All & Happy Thursday!  Another week almost over and thank goodness for that---I'm looking forward to doing NOTHING this weekend!  No cleaning, no Xmas stuff putting away, no errands--just hangin around the house & lots of reading for me :o)  It is actually gonna break 50 degrees on Saturday--whoah nelly-that's a heat wave for sure since it's been in the 10's & 20's for 2 months now!  I might have to break out the shorts & suntan lotion for that, LMBO!!

I sure hope the weather is fine when I fly out to CA next week--I HATE flying (flying & claustrophobia are my 2 fears) and I hate it even more when it's nasty weather.  My poor friend Marti has to put up with me, but I will have some sleepytime Dramamine in my system to keep me calm, lol!  But other than the flying part, I'm really excited to go to CHA again this year--I had such a blast last year!  If you're out at CHA and wanna meet me, I'll be at the Scor-Pal booth all day on Monday so stop by and say "HI" okay!!  I'll be blogging of course while I'm gone, so make sure & stop by to see updates on all the new CHA stuff too!



-Today is the last day to enter for Blog Candy for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design for the new Victoria Case Release tomorrow.  You have until tonite at 10:30 pm EST to enter--so go HERE for all the details!  The DT will be having a fun Blog Hop for you tomorrow featuring all the new stamps--they are ca-ute!!

Pink Cat Studio Digi Release

Today is another fabulous digi stamp release from Pink Cat Studio and I've got 2 fun projects to share with you!  I ADORE this lil' panda stamp Melissa created called "Panda Holding Heart"--isn't he/she a cutie pie!  I started to put this card together using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #121 to make a Valentine card, but I got to thinking and it was calling out to a Baby Card :o)  It still would make a fabulous Valentine card just by switching out the sentiment too.  I'm not sure who the dp's are by since I dug them outta my scrap basket, but lil' Panda is colored with Copics and then I added diamond glaze to his heart, nose & eyes.  The sentiment is a rub-on from SU, bow was made with the bow-easy and finished off with some pearls!  Panda-licious I say!!

For my second project I used the same cute Panda but this one is called "Panda Holding Heart-BACK"!  I've had a brand new package of large lollipop sticks cluttering up my desk for weeks, waiting patiently for me to use them, LOL!  Well they got used finally, hee hee--I made these fun Valentines that would be fabulous Valentine favors, kid's Valentines or just a treat for your loved one (this one is for my hubby)!  The hearts are cut-outs from my Nestabilities that I embossed with a few different CB embossing folders.  The red cs was embossed with the CB folder "Candy Cane" and then I added stardust Stickles to the stripes.  The sentiment is from the "Feeling Groovy" set from Verve Stamps.  The backside of my Valentine holds a personal message to my hubby & a piece of Dove chocolate--I'll stick this in his briefcase on Valentine's Day before he leaves for work!!

Hope you liked my projects today--but don't forget to stop by the Pink Cat Studio Blog HERE to see all of the DT projects!  And stop by the store HERE to see all the new digis including the new backgrounds!

See ya back here tomorrow with lots of news & fun announcements & releases!!
