Partytime cat

Are you ready to party??? This cute cat, I call him Thomas after my little kittie, surely appears to be LOL.

Our theme today over at Stamp Something is

Glittery Somethings!

Super easy and if you are like me you'll probably add glitter to every single card! So no excuse not to play along!! And as usual we have a great prize up for grabs, this week Simon Says is our fabulous sponsor!!

I decided to use a digistamp from Whimsy Stamps Meljen's Designs for this challenge. I had purchased it when they had a sale last month but hadn't had a chance yet to use it. I thought it would be perfect with new years but since I don't sent out new years cards I decided to make it a birthday celebration card.

It's been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and then blended with some baby oil. The papers are from My Minds Eye (I think??) and Stampin Up. I embellished with some SU grosgrain ribbon, buttons and then of course glitter. It is however hard to see, but if you click on the card you will get a bigger picture! The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set, I masked the two words so I could use my word window punch to punch them out. To finish it off I did some sewing with my janome mini.

I had posted this picture of my cat before, but wanted to post it again for those of you that haven't seen it yet, so when I look at this image by meljen's I just have to think of my little Thomas. He is such a silly cat! And by the way, sometimes when he meows, it sounds like he's saying "mama". Really crazy!

Other challenges I am entering this to:

That is all for today, hope you are having a FABULOUS new year's eve celebration whatever you may have planned!

I'll be back tomorrow with my Penny Black at All Sorts project for the month of January!
