Annette

I love how Alma named a bunch of The Cat's Pajamas summer stamps after Gidget characters! I just loved watching Gidget growing up - definitely one of my favorite shows. I always thought it would be so glamorous to live in California and be able to just drive to the beach anytime I want. But here I am, still living in a land-locked state, wishing for a little bit of beach front property someday. *sigh*

So anyway, Annette is the next stamp I'm featuring. Here's what I came up with for her. The concentric circles in this Memory Box paper are really what inspired the layout of the card. I just thought Annette looked so sassy and take charge that she needed this saying.

Stamps: The Cat���s Pajamas
F-7470 Annette
C-7459 What Part of Meow
Paper: Memory Box Beach Collection; Bazzill Cardstock; Conqueror Diamond White Cardstock

Ink: Ancient Page Coal Black; Prismacolor pencils, Stardust Pens
Accessories: Offray ribbon; Making Memories metal rimmed tag & jump ring; EK Success Circle punch


I colored her with Prismacolors and Gamsol and then doodled a frame around her and matted on Bazzill paper. The Sentiment is stamped on white cardstock, punched out and glued to the top of a metal rimmed tag. It is then attached to the bow with a jump ring.

I also got a fabulous RAK from Lisa yesterday featuring Annette. I just love the rafia all around the scalloped oval, which Lisa said came from one of Taz's (her cat) favorite toys! What a hoot! I've been way into red, blue and yellow lately, so this color scheme is right up my alley. You can't tell in the photo, but the Stardust gel pen highlights are positively shimmery. The paper, the wavy line, the raffia... it's just purrrrfect! Thanks Lisa, it's the first Cat's Pajamas card I've ever received! I love it!
