Pink or Red?

B&T paper - Target's $1 bin
Stamps - American Art Stamps (Kliban cat) & Penny Black (sentiment)
Quikutz Heart die cuts
Inks - Memento
Ribbon - A Muse
Heart Brad - Making Memories
I know that I say that I love this or that a lot............guess I must love a lot of things because I do absolutely LOVE these Kliban Cats stamps. These cards are oh-so speedy to make because the cat only has a bit of coloring.....fill in the hearts and apply Stickles, do a bit of paper layering and you're done. The stumper on this to arrange the ribbon with the heart die cuts!! By adding the brad, it gives a bit more texture and popping up the heart/ribbon doo-dad with some foam tape gives it its own "spotlight".
The B&T paper is such a deal.........$1.00 for 8 sheets of 12x12 paper. I think I like the red B&T version better, but the pink is pretty chirpy too....hmmmmm, now I'm confusing myself!!
WARNING: I'll most likely be dragging out more of my Kliban Cats.....I have a good-sized collection of them and a lot of that is due to the kindness of Carol (The Stamper's Corner). About 10 years ago, she offered to order any of the Kliban Cats that I wanted (you had to order at least 2 stamps of each design and I don't think she had a lot of demand for these guys at the time), she gave me a very generous discount and she personally delivered them to me at work (I was working long hours and she just knew it would kill me to have to wait until the weekend to go and get them). I've been lucky to establish some close relationships with some of this city's stamping "power-houses" I'm grateful for all they've done for me........I know that I am one lucky stamper!!

Hmmm, well, I'm partial to red these day. I like pink, but LOVE red. NO clue why. That cat is too funny!

They're both lovely, but I like the pink one better. It's just more lively and cheerful looking to me.
