Kitty Under the Mistletoe

Another Christmas card!  All these "Christmas in July" challenges have really put me in the holiday mood!  For today's card, I used this adorable pre-coloured freebie digi-stamp from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps.  Mary Ellen shares her beautiful images there - all for free - you should check it out!  In this case, she generously dug into her archives to find me a Christmas kitty image - I was tickled pink with this one to say the least.  I think the image might just be of me and one of my kitties - LOL!  Here are the supplies I used to make this card:
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • White Card Base:  Staples
  • Cutting Dies:  Nellie's Multiframes - Ovals, Spellbinders - Crown Ovals
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Pearls and Metal Sentiment Brad (it says "Holiday Cheer"):  Dollarama

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Allways Something Creative #57 Is it Christmas already?
Card Mania #25 Pearls and/or Gems (I used pearls)

Oh, I'm such a cat person - so I LOVE this!!!! Although I would have had to have the cat colored all black or tuxedo since that's the colors of my kitties. :) Another great Christmas card! Thanks again for joining us at Eureka Stamps.
