Pink Cat Studio ~ Nov 26th Digi Release, Gift With Purchase, a Holiday Contest and a Farewell!

It's Pink Cat Friday! This post will be a little longer than usual so I hope you have your morning beverage of choice! ;) First up will be the digi release, followed by the Black Friday special, details for the holiday contest and a farewell! Today's digis will be the last new release for Pink Cat Studio in 2010. We'll be taking a break 'til the New Year!

Today's digis are meant to inspire you to either start or continue making your Christmas cards! I can tell you that I'm nowhere near done with mine but I was happy to take the incredible Billy Train Ride digi and make my son his perfect Christmas card. He's been collecting Thomas & Friends trains and accessories for the past year. We've been so good about trickling them into his collection and he always has a huge smile on his face when he gets a new one. The newest one arrived yesterday via a good friend from Indianapolis. My son has been asking for a crane for the longest time and I wish I had captured his smile on camera!

My card was very simple to make. I coloured in the image, cut it out, used my wheel to create the tracks and popped the image on with dimensionals.

Here's the Black Friday Special! If you make any purchase of $5 or more from the Pink Cat Studio rubber or digi stores today only, you will receive these six amazing digital stamps for free!! These stamps are valued at more than $15! If that doesn't inspire you, read on. ;)

Pink Cat Studio is having a Holiday Challenge! All you need to do is create a project that includes at least one Pink Cat Studio image (sentiments excluded). Examples of projects include cards, gift boxes and bags, tags, scrapbook layouts, etc.
