Day Two: Chicken Girl Release Day!

Here I am again as promised with a project made using the Meowy Christmas image from Chicken Girl's October collection available only at I Heart Papers! Here's a peek at the entire collection:

Chase the Snowflakes, Meowy Christmas, Gobble You Up, Good Cheer
And here's what I did with the Meowy Christmas image:

I have to be honest, I was planning to use the Meowy Christmas sentiment as well, but my paper jammed in my printer and it's late because I'm Last Minute Laura and with my son's room across the way it will cause too much commotion to fix, so a wintery birthday wishes it is! HA! Happy accident, though, right?!
Anywhoo, my colors were inspired by the Mitten Weather collection from October Afternoon which I also got from I Heart Papers. I really love this combo of plum and aqua!
My layout uses this week's Sketch For You To Try from Jen del Muro.
Oh I just love this little Meowy Christmas image! It was so fun to color and work with! I couldn't believe I was coloring hats and mittens and punching out snowflakes this early. So I added in some of my favorite details as of late; a pleated stitched border! And of course ribbon, but this time it's accented with a kraft button which I die cut from a Sizzix button die that I've had but don't think I've ever used and I threaded it with some of my new baker's twine in this lovely almost aqua green. Of course I squeezed in a Sentiment Flag die and stamp! You can check out my new die and stamp set HERE. I am loving this flag die and stamp set! I think you will too!
Before I leave you to enjoy your Sunday, please take a few minutes to head on over to I Heart Papers for all your papercrafting goodies AND please visit my fellow Chicken Girls' blogs for more fun projects using the new release images!
On a sad note, this will be my last release as a member of the Chicken Girl Design Team. I can't believe six months has gone by! I have to first thank my dear friend Tammy Hershberger for recommending me to Kate Baldwin for her design team and to Kate for welcoming me onto the team and for her generosity as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and I hope we can work together in a similar capacity in the very near future. Last but not certainly least, A HUGE SHOUT OUT TO Jannie Ho our Chicken Girl Designs illustrator. Jannie, you've created some of THE MOST DELIGHTFUL images with this line and it's been an honor being able to represent your talents! Thank you!
