showing some love to my pinkies....

**edited to add**
COMPLETELY forgot to add an important tidbit to this post - the bag is done for the FIRST pink cat challenge over on the Planet - paper craft planet that is. have you been?? go check it out - a superb new place for hanging out!!

for today's gift set i pulled out some pink cat studio stamps - they have been a bit neglected for awhile now which is so sad because they are simply adorable - some of my faves as i have said before. in fact a few new ones will be here soon :) so i settled on this cute little shopper and a little birdie friend. i usually color the birds all yellow so i decided in honor of christmas i would try something new and made these cute little red birds! the little circle patterned paper is also a pink cat stamp from a background set. i stamped with versamark, used distress embossing powder in peeled paint and shabby shutters and then rubbed with distress inks in tattered rose, worn lipstick and shabby shutters with the foam blending tool - an absolute must have!! accented with ruby slippers glitz stickles. all of these items are available on the website.
images are colored with copics:

next up some little gift card holders again - this time with my very first BUT UN-INKED Bella stamp! i got her as a xmas gift so it was too late to use her last year. she was super easy to color and oh so cute! both are accented with glitter pans and the boots are covered with my clear sakura glaze pen so they are shiny.
las gift card holder is a simpler cuttlebug embossed image using a piece of glossy cardstock covered in alcohol inks:

anyone else get their sign up done for CHA classes???? i never did get it to work and then after about 40 minutes it went completely off line - BUMMER i so want to get in to T!m's class!!!!
