'Hi Cat' New Year...



2012 is in full swing! I'm already up to my nose in design work, which is getting me off to a fun start for the year. One of my new gigs is for the wonderful company, PSA Essentials, and today I have a card for you that is one of three being featured on their blog

Every little girl knows who Hello Kitty is, but for me, she's been a lifelong love. So, I have to admit that I figured my little boy would not be interested one bit! Then, when he first started to talk, he pointed at one of my many Hello Kitty items and said with a big smile: "Hi Cat!" PSA Essentials officially licenses Hello Kitty images for their cool stamps and so my love affair continues...
For this card, I stamped HK in a plane and had her ringing in the new year up in the clouds. I also stamped all the numbers from 2012 in the background with clear embossing ink and heat embossed to really make them pop. This was an easy way to make a card to usher in what is sure to be a fabulous year. Hope yours is as happy as mine!
