Graphicat Designs Grand Opening Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Graphicat Designs Grand Opening Blog Hop! I'm thrilled to be participating with the talented group of ladies who are designing for this new company and I'm excited for all of you to see the fabulous stuff Cheri has in store for us!

If you're doing the hop, you should have arrived here from visiting Chris at her blog... otherwise, you'll want to start at the beginning and check out Cheri's card! We're all featuring Cheri's new April Challenge sketch and new digi images from Graphicat Designs on our cards. I confess, this is my very first time actually colouring up a digi image. I just love rubber stamps too much ;) but I know Cheri has plans to head that direction and I can't wait! She's a very talented lady and I'm so excited to see where her business will take her (hopefully it won't be long before you can buy her rubber stamps at Creative Accents)!

I chose to colour up the "Coffee Cup Cat" image and a sentiment that is just perfect with it, and oh so true...
I've used papers from Basic Grey's Curio collection, bling from Prima and a fabric rose & ribbon which I coloured to match with new Distress Stains & Perfect Pearls Mist- so fabulously fun to work with! My kitty's eyes are sparkling with a touch of Spica Glitter Pen and some Glossy Accents.

We hope you can play along with this month's sketch challenge- you'll find all the details at the end of the hop on the Graphicat Designs blog! But before you start creating your own masterpiece, you'll wanna finish this Blog Hop and check out the rest of the Crafty Katz Creations! Hop on over and see what Carla has created... it's sure to be fabulous & fun!

p.s. Of course as part of this hop there will be prizes!! Cheri will award digi stamps to 3 commenters and Copic Paper to 3 followers. And perhaps some other surprises as well...you never know! Happy Hopping!
