A Perfectly Poisonous KitCat Monday!

I know - it's supposed to be KitCat SUNday, but yours truly had no camera. Lighting was terrible yesterday anyway. When yours truly got a camera today, the batteries were toast. Batteries now charged, but at this hour, the lighting is worse than terrible. Enough whining already.

The extraordinary Michelle was our hostess, and she sent us an equally extraordinary kit featuring some sassy and fun images from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I finally decided on Perfect Poison which I colored with Copics. Love her expression! I also added a little bling to her dress with some pink rhinestones from the kit.

I think SU's Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, and Certainly Celery are perfect complements the yummy Jack and Jill papers from Prima that Michelle chose for us.

Of course, she also included one wonderful embellie after another, but then I saw IT: the amazing tulle flower from Prima! And then I saw THEM: the fantastic jeweled pins! The green/yellow is from Jillibean Soup and the pink/irridescent is from KatzWorld. And look at the gorgeous striped ribbon!

So there you have my KitCat creation for this month! Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations by the other Kittens: Michelle, Jeanette, Lorie, and Kelly.
Before I go, I must give a big congrats to the Green Bay Packers for winning Super Bowl XLV! (Our Kitten Michelle is a huge fan!) Of course I was disappointed that my beloved Steelers couldn't pull it out in the end ... I was really hoping to go to another victory parade this week. But it was a great game nonetheless!

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Have a great day!

Susan, your card is awesome! I love the way you put the ribbon behind the gorgeous flower. Great coloring of your image, too. Love it!!

Lorie said...

Susan, I think the card making Gods had us on the same page! We DID use the exact same SU papers! I absolutely LOVE what you did with the bow and prima, and the pin placement is perfect!! You did a beautiful job showing off this adorable image, and this was more than worth the little wait! Very well done!!!

I watched the game Sunday night, and your Steelers made a valiant effort. I really thought they might pull off a win. I know you're proud of them, and a very good sport. There's always next year!! :)

Love ya,

I'm soo excited to see you used the other immie! It's positively fabulous, her dress is TDF with the lil bling and your flower/pin treatment is one to case,girl! Ah-may-zing! I'm sorry to hear of your game - no losses, just more hopes to cheer them on next year, okay? Big hugs and awesome job!
