Pink Cat "Lily"

I made this little gift box for one of Zoe's friends for Christmas. It's going to be stuffed with craft goodies! This was created using my trusty Scor-pal. It is so easy to make and you can find the details here.

I have also used my cute new Pink cat stamps and the Lily stamp I have used is from the set Lily and Tweet. I love this set as it has a variety of stamps for different occasions not just Christmas. I received an excellent service and these arrived to my home within 5 days of ordering.

The image is coloured with my Primsacolor pencils using Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have then given the snowman a glisten by colouring my Sakura stardust pen onto an acrylic block and then lifting the stardust with a damp brush. You need to keep the brush moving quickly and in circular movement so not to be left with any grey dark spots or streaks. I have then finished with Stickles. The prima holly leaf was also covered with lots of stickles too..

I wanted to add a fun element to the box so this pom pom ribbon was a great find at the Ali Pali show.
I received the above award from my blog friend Pati. Thank you so much for thinking of me and I hope you and hubbie continue to have fun with you voluntary work in Australia.

Wishing all my US friends a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you all have a great holiday with your family and friends.
