Yay!   It’s time for the

Reflections Blog Hop for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design,

welcoming new artist ~  


I’m so thrilled to be part of this wonderful hop and can’t wait to see all the gorgeous creations.   If you’ve arrived here from the fabulous Jacqui Dennis – Cat’s Whiskers blog, you are on the right path!  
If you’ve just happened to stop by today, please head over to Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design for all the details on the hop and the master list of blogs.      
This GORGEOUS image is called Purrrrfect Friends and is from the new Reflections Set #1 which has been illustrated by the amazingly talented Carmen Medlin for SCACD.    I love the autumn feel to this image, and of course, the adorable little kitty!   I decided to work with some deeper colors – matching the brown and teal colors from the Basic Grey DP ~ max & whiskers. 


The sentiment is actually the title of this illustration and has been embellished with some teal colored metal flowers and brown rhinestones, and is computer generated . . .



All the new stamps from this new release, Reflections Set #1, are NOW available at SCACD!*  

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ Your next stop for the blog hop is the wonderful, SUPER nice and So VERY talented  . . .
