You've got a furrrrriend-DT Whimsy

Hello Blogger Buddies!!
Happy Sunday to you!!
As some of my blogging buddies might already know,
I made some spare time and hopped along with
Whimsy Stamps' new release blog hop,
it's nice to do random things you don't "have" to do
every now and then, wouldn't you say?
Well, to my ultimate surprise and pleasure,
I won the prize from the hop,
which was 5 images of my choice and
the opportunity to be a guest designer through September.
Awesome upon awesome, right?
Well, imagine me falling out of my chair when I opened an email with a bonafide invite onto the Whimsy Stamps DT? It took about 20 seconds to catch my breath after being pretty well stunned by the email, then typed yes yes yes as fast as my fingers could move, lol!! The Whimsy Team is amazing as it is, I hope I can bring something to the table of this already astounding bunch, and I look forward to the opportunity to share the creative process with all who are willing to read it, lol!!

***By the way, The Whimsy Stamps web site is back up and better than ever, if you've been by recently and had a hard time, the system has been successfully restored/upgraded, hip hip hooray!!!***

So, without further ado,
here is my first project for the Whimsy inspirations Blog, the fabulous Debbie Eastman has been kind enough to let me join in with her posting, thank you Debbie :) featuring the adorable Kitty Cat Love by MelJen, love it!!

I've coloured the prisma image in pencils and added a touch of pearl smooch on the outside of the white kitties shiny coat, the white kitty is cut out and popped up on foam mounts also. The image was shadowed in prisma color markers and the distressing around the image is done in brushed corduroy.

The papers are October Afternoon, the big flowers are I am roses, the oak leaf branch is Martha Stewart and the paper used for them is K & Co. All the other treasure is from my stash, and the distressing is all brushed corduroy and scuffed up with scissors.

Well, I think that is about it for now.
Next, my lesson on making spare time, lol!!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope the rest of your weekend
goes swimmingly!!
hugs, stephanne
