Purrr-fectly Delightful Blog Hop

Good Evening! Wow I'm really excited to show you some samples of Theresa Momber's newest stamp set "Purrr-fectly Delightful". This is my very favorite set of Theresa's, I love cats and I have a wonderful loving cat thats 15 years old. The images are so beautifully drawn. This first image, vase of flowers is colored with prisma pencils with OMS and highlighted with a white gel pen. Cardstock is from Gina K. Designs.

In this card I did it for winter colors, the DP is Basic Grey and cardstock is Gina K.

For my next card here I used the cat and mouse images from "Purrr-fectly Delightful" and the mailbox image is from "Autumn Beauty" also by Theresa.

My last sample I have is a fun one! Melanie Muenchinger had this template of the pop-up desk free on her blog and I just had to try it. I combined sets for this one, the lamp is from Nina Brackett's "Lovely shelf", the perfume bottles are from Rupa Shevde's "Retro Boutique" and the cat and mouse are from Theresa's "Purrr-fectly Delightful". This is really easy to do and Melanie also has a pattern for an oven, you can get at Gina K. Designs. I got it also but so far don't have anything to cook in it. LOL

This is the front of the card.

All the images and card stock is from and available at Gina K. Designs.
