Lawn Fawn's 2013 CHA Catalog Contest and a Kitty Blunder!

About three weeks ago, Lawn Fawn had posted that they were having a contest to be chosen for their catalog for CHA (Craft and Hobby Association). If you have seen my posts on Facebook, you know I am a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE, fan of Lawn Fawn's stamps. Why? Because they stamp clean, crisp, and perfect every single time I stamp. It doesn't matter what ink either...they stamp perfectly! The letters are awesome too. I've used other tiny alphabet stamps and it's hard to get them to line up with the proper spacing between the letters., I picked up a set of Smitty's ABC's (here) and I fell in love with the stamps because of how awesome they stamp!

I saw on their blog a chance to win some product, so I decided to enter the contest. I made 2 cards already, and last night I decided to make 2 more before their deadline. Well, I kind of had a slight accident. As I was working on the lettering, Simba, our kitten, decided to run across my desk and accidentally stepped in my ink, and proceeded to run and step on a piece of paper and a few seconds later saw he left his "signature"  right in the middle of the card. My fault for leaving that ink open. Here is Simba, then the card:

I decided I was going to keep the card, and maybe put it in my scrapbooks.

Here is the one I redid and is for the contest:
Supplies Used:
Cardstock by Michael's (red, the black shimmer) and white.
Embossing folder by Cuttlebug..Swiss dots
Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABC's little heart stamp over the i is from Plus One
Copic R29
Ribbon with white hearts...Doodlebug Designs.
Black ribbon from Offray.

Here is my Second Entry:


White Cardstock base from Coordinations
Blue, Orange, Yellow, Red and Green Cardstock, from Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
Cuttlebug folders..Swiss Dots and star (that one is actually from Sizzix)
Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABC's
Black ribbon from Offray
Copic Markers R29, Y06, G07, YR07, and B24

I was looking in my Cardmaking Magazine and saw some really cute cards in there, and I think a mixture of the cards became my inspiration for this card (not to mention, it was a good excuse to use my Copic Markers, and Quinn's are so much fun to use! :)

Wish me luck on the contest! :)
