Pink Cat Studio ~ Oct 20th Holiday Digi Release + A Farewell

Welcome to Pink Cat Studio's October 20th Digi Release! Melissa has drawn four adorable holiday digis so you can get an early start on your Christmas cards. My card features Cool Santa on Skateboard. Isn't he hilarious? Who says Christmas can't be sunny and fun, right?

Meg sent me the perfect background stamp for this card and I inked up a sentiment that goes with the image perfectly. I die cut the front and back of the card in white, the frame in blue and adhered them together. This card was easily finished by popping Santa on with foam tape and tying some Charcoal baker's twine around the base.

Farewell to Pink Cat Studio

It makes me sad to announce that is my last post as a Pink Cat Studio design team member. I am literally heartbroken over my decision to leave the team but I have a lot going on right now and need to make room for other things. Just over two years ago, it was a dream come true when Melissa asked me to join her team. Pink Cat Studio was my very first design team and it will forever hold a special place in my heart. Being on this design team opened so many doors for me and I'm sure the ripples of this first opportunity will continue long after I leave.

Melissa, I will never forget what you've done for me! We've become such great friends over the years and I know this is not really a goodbye but a new stage in the creative journey for both of us. A huge thank you to my friends and Pink Cat Studio fans who have been with me since the beginning. If you've become a follower recently, I hope you will continue to follow the Pink Cat Studio Blog for fun and smiles!

OK, first, I love this card. Santa would totally wear shades. What did Damian think about this card?
And second, boo, hiss. I'm so going to miss seeing your creations with the PCS design team. It must have been a really hard decision to make :(

Look at you and your super cute santa card. Love it!!!

Your Santa card is so fun! I love what you did to make him really pop off of the card!

I am sorry you are saying goodbye to PCS. Sometimes closing one door is necessary to go through the next doors you are meant to go through. I think it is great that you are leaving with such fond memories and good friendships!

Angela said...

I'll miss your amazing color/cut abilities with PCS -- you sure make those images extra-fun (and this one's no exception).

Rachel B said...

What a fun Santa! Very fun card Emily!

Meg said...

I thought you'd put that background to good use and look there, you did! That rad santa is totally grooving! I will miss seeing you color up those cute PCS images.
