New Release from Sandra Caldwell

It's Friday, and you know what that means.  New release day for Sandra Caldwell (babycakednd) on Etsy.  The patriotic holidays are coming up and I'm thrilled to be showcasing #1571 Americana Kitty.  I colored this cutie with Copics and added a dimensional star to his hat.  I used my new larger Sizzix banner dies for the background and papers from Bo Bunny's Anthem pad.  The sentiment is computer generated.  Added a couple more dimensional stars and called it done.

You can check out DT inspiration for all the new release  stamps on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB Group page, but also take a peek at her Etsy Shop because Sandra always sneaks in a couple extras.  Also the Steampunk contest runs through May 19th and you can find the 6 stamps to be used in the contest (or not, for that matter) on sale HERE.  Sandra is also a sponsor at Markers! Papers! Digis! and there's a huge Spring Fling event going on there through May 27th.  WOW!  Lots of fun to be had.  Hope to see you there. 

Been sort of a lean week for crafting because of a fun sort of surprise visit from one of my nieces and her friend from Florida.  Gotta say I was pretty impressed that at age 19 they planned a 3 week cross country road trip from Florida and are checking out lots of state parks and attractions along the way.  We spent a fun day in San Francisco touring Alcatraz and seeing the sights but now they're 
off to their next destination.
