Kid Card #1

Thank you Karen G., Tiffany and Terri E. for your sweet comments! I only joined the stamping community recently so it's super nice to have this level of encouragement and traffic to my site. It's been a super busy week since we're going on vacation next week and although I received my new Pink Cat Studio stamps on Monday I haven't even had a chance to open the packages and cut up the stamps. Wow, just looking at them made me drool for days! I kept thinking, 'How am I going to initiate these stamps?! Do I use Lily or Billy first? What colours do I choose?' There are so many choices which is what makes these stamp sets so delightful. I finally decided there is no occasion more perfect than a little girl's birthday. A friend's daughter is turning three, very much in the princess stage, and also starting to craft with her mom so I hope this card not only makes her happy but is inspiring. I thought I would dress up Lily as a princess complete with ice cream and handbag. I decided to make up for my lack of markers by filling in the images with pencil crayons then layering with chalks to make the colours more vivid. I love the way my first Lily card turned out and I can't wait to make more!

I'll write your Panda suggestion in my idea book. It would be fun to draw a panda set!
