Inspired by... PIA!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great start to your weekend. I know I am looking forward to watching some Christmas movies and making cards. :)

I have always admired the style our next featured stamper and I'm sure you will too. For the next six days I will be featuring cards made by... the talented Pia Overgaard! You will want to add her blog to your favorites so here is the link. Oh, and don't forget to stop by her photostream- another fab place for inspiration!

Here is our first fun card from Pia:

Could this be any cuter?! I don't think so! I love those smiley cats in pink. Their glittery scarves look great. I love the background stamping Pia did, too! Finally the "meow" embellishment hanging from the fun ribbon finishes off this unique card.

Here is my take:


Thanks for stoppin' by, my blogging buddies. I can't wait to show you another of Pia's fabulous creations tomorrow!

Thanks also for your comments and encouragement-- I appreciate each and every comment!!
