Magical Meg --YNS Fun Friday

Happy Friday to YOU!!!
I have a super fun image for you today 
from YNS and the new digital line of stamps!!  

Here is Magical Meg and I colored her up yesterday with copics 
and some really bright purple Shin-han makers!! 
They have some really fantastic brights if you haven't checked them out yet!!

Our awesome leader, Karen from YNS, is having her birthday today!!!
A great BIG birthday shout out goes out to her!!
Have you checked out the newest stamps yet??
There are fabulous new winter and holiday stamps on the site!!

I love the fun papers that really coordinate well with this image!!
My fave Halloween paper pack is called, Doodlebug Designs Halloween Parade.
I used some yellow Tim Holtz stickles, orange stickles, and some clear over the lime green star.

Let me know what you think of the cat fur... I have tried a new technique from a tutorial shared with me by my friend Tracy Mac.  :) :)  You can find it right here.
(Oh!!!  and pay no attention to any of the dress to the left of the kitty's bum bum!!!
I may or may not have dropped my black marker there... LOL!!!
 I tried to fix it as best as I could, but cleaning up black is NOT easy!!)

As you may know, at YNS you can choose to use the sketch or the inspiration pic 
or you can use both.  I chose the Halloween inspiration pic for my card!!

Here's this month's sketch and inspiration pic.
You can use one of them or both!!
