"Purrr-fectly Delightful" Blog Hop!

Thank you for visiting me today in our "Purrr-fectly Delightful" hop!

No kitty today from me, though! Instead I inked up just the teacup portion of the image and stamped on glossy CS (works well as China!), then inked up just the flowers from the vase image and cut them out and popped them out on top to make a little teacup garden. I adhered my Copic colored image onto this plaid pattern from Basic Grey Sugar Rush, just to do something a little different than a plain colored, white or sponged mat. Card base is Pure Luxury White, green print is Basic Grey Lime Rickey, and mat is Moonlit Fog to match the stripe in the plaid. Button is from the Gina K Autumn Assortment and gingham ribbon is from the Romance Assortment.

Now, it's your turn! Please hop over to Gina's blog to add the direct link to your blog post showcasing Theresa's Purrr-fectly Delightful Stamp set in the Mister Linkey Box. Gina will have a special prize for the one link that she chooses out of all the participating bloggers - check out her blog for the details.

Have a purrr-fectly delightful day!
