A Winner, a new Graphicat challenge and a Guest DT spot!

Hello Bloggers! It's a super long post today so bear with me!  First of all, I was honored to be asked to be a guest designer at the Made Especially For You blog for their "Back to School with Velum" challenge! It's a fab challenge and you could win 3 images from The Stamping Boutique. Head on over to the Made Especially for You blog for more details!

I made this cute little card using a fun Graphicat  kindergarten image. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge! It printed beautifully on vellum too!

 The numbers are stamped on some Basic Grey paper with a Studio Calico stamp set then cut out and strung up with some Twinery twine.

So head over to the Made Especially for you blog and play along this week!

Now, if you remember a couple weeks ago us Crafty Cats had a sexy little Grey Goes West blog hop, and we have some winners to announce!! You can see all of the winners right HERE, but the lucky winner from my blog is: JULIE TUCKER-WOLEK!!!! Yay Julie!! You've won a digi of your choice from the new release! You can choose your digi HERE and then email Cheri at to claim your prize! 

Noooowww....are you still with me?!  It's time for a new challenge over at Graphicat Sketches and this time we want you to choose your favourite Graphicat sketh! You can see all the old sketches HERE to play along! The lucky winner is going to get your choice of 5 Graphicat Digis!!

I used this fabulous Graphicat sketch, which I just noticed isn't on the list of old sketches...but oh well, I'm sure you can use it too! lol

 This is the card I made. It was my mother in law's birthday on the 2nd, and this was the card I made for her.

 Here's a close up of the colouring (although I'm not sure why I'm bothering! I went to the gym right before I finished colouring this girl, and my arms were so weak I could hardly colour in the lines! lol)

And I even did the inside of the card!! (those of you who know me well will know that is super rare!)

Well if you're still with me thanks for stickin around! I hope you'll join me and play along with Made Especially for you and Graphicat Sketches!! 

Have a great day!!
