KitCat Cocoa Puff

It's KitCat time! Yes, we normally post on the first Sunday of the month, but we kittens needed a little more time (some of us (me) more than others as I am getting this post up just in the nick of time).

This month's hostess was the super-sweet and talented Catherine, who sent us adorable Cocoa Puff images by Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design along with some yummy Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers and fun, funky fibers!

Another square card...I just can't get enough of them! After coloring with Copics, I cut out the image and placed it on a circle of embossed snowflakes that I sparkled up a wee bit with some flat-back rhinestones. Just a couple snowflake brads and the fun, funky fibers from my kit and presto! There's a card! I'm not completely thrilled with this; I wish I had done something less symmetrical and more fluid. Oh well, next time!

Oooo, I can't *wait* to see how the other kittens have worked their magic with these kits! Be sure to check them out:

I know this post is really short but I'm really tired and need to go to bed before my head crashes into the keyboard!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Creating!

Well, you may not be completely thrilled with this, but I am! I love your interpretation of this kit, and you cut that image out?!!! That took some doing, and it looks great against that cuttlebugged background. Just the right amoung of bling, too! I love that so many of you girls are using copics. I've been afraid to try, but I love the look of yours so much, I may have to give it a go. Thanks for sharing, Susan, and this was DEFINITELY worth waiting for!!

Love ya,
