Furry Friends Blog Hop! from Gina K. Designs!

Hey Y'all!  Glad to see you today!
Today, we will be featuring two new sets from Alicia Krupsy!

Frisky Felines Bundle (also available seperate)
Playful Pups Bundle (available seperately)
Both of these sets are so much fun to stamp and play with!  And of course, I'm a bit partial to the kitties...being known as the Cat Lady to some, lol!  So up first, is a card with the Frisky Felines set:
 

I tried my hand at no line stamping.  I used Prisma colored pencils and gamasol to color the kitty with.  You cant see it very well but the vellum piece has clear embossed paw prints across it too.  I think I do like how my no line coloring turned out...took me forever though I think, lol!  But do need more practice!

Next up, the Playful Pups set.  Here is what I did with that one:


I also used Foil Mates by Gina K. from ThermOWeb.  This doggy was, or I should say I TRIED to color him like all of the cute pomeranians out there!  My sister has one, and I know Gina K. has one too, Teddy!  I used the colors of those poms, red haired.  There are sooo many variations of poms out there!  Im going to be coloring a bunch of them soon!  For this card also, the closure is a fold over, and I tucked the top part of the card behind the little Pom.  Here is a pic:

and I also decoreated the inside:
I used the paw print and also used the fancy foils and fancy foil mates.  This card is a bit smaller than the normal A2 size, but still mailable (is that a word?? LOL)  I love making cards a bit different shaped every now and then.  And love how this turned out! :D  It s so fun to use stamps and the foil mates....makes it so fun to create with!  :D

Ok!  Dont forget to make the hop to all of the sites listed below!  A few days after the hop we will have a randomly chosen winner drawn for a  $50.00 Gift Certificate to Gina K. Designs!  You can check back at StampTV in the Big News Forum To see if you were the winner!

Ok, thats all from me for today.   You should have came from 
 So your next hope will be the oh so talented

And here is the full list of blogs to hop too!  And if you get lost, you can also go back to Gina's Blog and hop from there where you got lost at.  

ok, get to hopping!  :D

The kitty in the card above was inspired by my grandkitty, lol.  My daughter Holli's cat.  Not just like, her, but somewhat:

Her expression cracks me up on this picture, lol!

And of course, got to show off my ShadyCat!!




And the last one, thats how I work most of the time!  :D  Look for a card with a kitty, colored like my Shady!

Thanks again for stopping by!  Means so much to me!  I have added an affiliate link at the very top right.  If you are so inspired to purchase at Gina's store, you can click that and it will not cost you a penny more!
