Graphicat Designs Grand Opening Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Graphicat Designs Grand Opening Blog Hop! If you're on the hop, you should be arriving from Nicole's blog. If you just came to see me and find out what's happening at Creative Accents, thanks! BUT if you want to check out the fabulous Grand Opening Celebration (you know you wanna...) please head on over to Cheri's blog to kick things off, you'll be back here in a jiffy ;)

Along with all the fabulous cards you'll be seeing from the Crafty Cats & friends, there will be BLOG CANDY available to people who comment along the way... Graphicat Designs is giving away 3 digital stamps at EACH stop along the hop (so leave some love and you might be my lucky winner!) PLUS a $25 gift certificate for her new online store to ONE lucky person among all of you! The more comments you leave, the better your chances to win something fabulous! There's also one other freebie anyone can enjoy, and that's FREE SHIPPING on all orders placed this week! Fab-u-lous!

So, along with my excitement at being part of this hop and celebrating with Cheri the opening of her new business, I'm thrilled that these wonderful stamps will be available for purchase at Creative Accents! Very soon we'll have a lovely display of gorgeous new stamps in the store... and the ones I'm using on these cards will be among them!

First up, the Happiness Fairy sentiment, which I have been wanting to use for a long time now... This image is now available as a beautiful clear polymer stamp!
I've used this fab sentiment together with a fairy from Kraftin' Kimmie, some flowers, papers & embellies from MME & my trusty tiny attacher (thank you, Tim Holtz!). I twisted and turned it, but used the latest Mojo Monday sketch for this one. Here's a close up, which was supposed to show off all the glitter on the fairy... but I'm thinking that didn't work out so well!
And my second card, which was actually my first... features the fabulous Coffee Girl image. She will be available very soon in red rubber and comes with four different sentiments you can mix & match. This one is my fave... she looks so serene, enjoying her cup of joe, but check out that sentiment:
heehee! Tell me I'm not the only one that feels that way some mornings!? I've used my current FAVE paper collection (in case you hadn't noticed...), Forever Fall by BoBunny. I've also added a ton of awesome glittery cardstock (we've got at least 20 colours in stock!) kept the embellies to a minimum.
Isn't she fabulous? There's so much more to see on our Grand Opening Celebration... so hop on over to Yvonne's blog and see what she created using Graphicat Designs images!
