Well Happy New Year to you all! I hope that 2011 has found everyone healthy and happy. We had a BLAST celebrating on New Year's Eve. Our house was the party house and it was just so much fun. The kids had fun doing a couple of crafts (painting party hats and coloring puzzles that I wrote 2011 on) and playing lots of games. We did a countdown almost every hour starting at 9 pm which was the biggest one because a lot of friends have younger kids or just plain want to go home and get some sleep. So they counted down at 9 pm and had balloons drop on them while they made all sorts of noise! So funny! If you would like to see pictures, scroll on down to the bottom of this post.
So with the beginning on the New Year, Paper Makeup Stamps is also beginning the Sneak Peeks for the January Release! Today is Critter Day...that is right we have a couple more Retro Cutie Critters. I love these little critters so much...they are cute, spunky, and just darn right fun to color! I get to introduce you to Fiora the Ferret. I have definitely never seen a ferret so retro stylin'! She looks like she is straight out of the 50's! I stamped her in Brilliance Graphite Black on watercolor paper and did a combo of markers/aquabrush and ink pads/aquabrush for coloring her...oh and a smidge of paper piecing for the hand warmer. The pattern paper is from the BoBunny Olivia Collection: Ambrosia and Baby's Breath. The layout is from the current Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #89.
Make sure to check out the rest of the sneak peeks of the two new Retro Cutie Critters on the PMS Blog...you could win them! Stay tuned this whole week as we sneak peek everyday and then join us for the Release Party in the PMS Forum on the 7th at 9 pm. There is always lots of chatter and fun with some games mixed in!
Now onto some pics from our party:
