Pink Cat Studio - Sneak Peaks Day 2

I set my post a little earlier today just so you night owls in Canada and the US can get your fix before bedtime ;-) Yay..!!! Day 2 of the Pink Cat Studio sneak peaks!

Here is another cutey Kiki with her butterfly. I am so loving this set of kitties. Don't you just love the sweet sentiment too! I have made a gift folder today which I can send to a blog buddy with some images in and... yummy chocolate! The instructions for this folder can be found here on Moni's blog.  I changed the sizes to fit my choccie bar. Thanks again for this great tutorial Moni and will use it again and again! I used my flower Shapeabilities for the flower design on the front... and again on the back with my handmade stamp. These have to be one of my favourite purchases.

Yummy, Yummy!

The above card is also my card for today's Spoon Full of Sugar challenge where we are asking you to do some paper piecing on your card.

We have the fabulous below prize this week of the High Hopes stamp "Love birds" which has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. I'll be back some time this week to show you a card with this cute couple as I have this image out on the side ready for colouring!

This week our Guest designer is Chris - Sketching Stamper! If you have never visited Chris's blog before you MUST and her colouring is.....awesome!

I have used another of the gorgeous new Lily and Billy stamps which are part of the new Sweethearts set to be released on Thursday! They are just adorable with their little matching hearts. I used my new Nestabilities Labels 1 for this card and I love them! I ordered these gorgeous papers from Canada after seeing them on one of my favourite blogs - Cindy Haffner (thanks Cindy.. I love you but my husband now gets hot sweats whenever he sees me on your blog :-). They are by Fiskars Cloud9 Design and called BeLoved.

Hope you've enjoyed the peaks today and don't forget to check out the links either along the right side of my blog or in my previous post to check out the rest of the PCS teams creations.

See you tomorrow with more peaks!

Hugs,
