Meowy Christmas With Love

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card to Brian from the kitties. So, Brian, if you're reading this, please go no further! No, this card isn't very masculine, but it's from the kitties!


This card was inspired by Day 2 of Catch the Bug's Christmas Chaos, which is a sketch (see below). I used an adorable digi from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Meowy Christmas Cats.  I love this cute image because it has all 3 of our kitties (left to right: Honeydew, Snowie, and Kiwi).


I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added Liquid Applique to represent snow.  This is the first time I've used this product - it's cool the way it puffs up when you heat it.  I also added Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter on the white parts of Kiwi's hat. I die-cut the image with a stitched oval from My Creative Time and mounted it on a scalloped oval (Spellbinders) cut from white glitter cardstock (Colorbok).  The background is embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflakes and cut into 3 pieces according to the Catch the Bug sketch. I use my Cuttlebug for die-cutting and embossing. Lastly I stamped the Meowy Christmas sentiment from Newton's Nook and the With Love sentiment from Cleary Besotted and added a bling ribbon.


After seeing the kitty card, Eli elf was feeling left out so he found two friends to pose with! I think the little bears are a bit puzzled but one of them is presenting a gift to Eli!  We would like to link up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, and Hope in their funny elf antics too!


P.S. Yesterday I became very frustrated with the robot verification process while I was commenting, so I'll see how it goes today. If I don't get around to comment, you'll know why!  In the meantime, hopefully I've made it easier for you to comment here.  I've changed my settings to Comment Moderation - Always and this is supposed to prevent you from being asked to prove you're not a robot. If you'd like to change yours, here are the steps:  Design, Settings, Posts and Comments, Comment Moderation - Always.  Then scroll down to Word Verification and make sure it's No.

  59. What an absolutely adorable little card, here! I'm sure the kitties would be totally honored that you represented them so well with this card! Love how you made the central image pop with the bright colors, yet it is still so elegant with the white background. Who cares if it's masculine enough or not? It is BRILLIANT any way you slice it! Thanks for sharing this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. It truly made me smile and I wish all the best to you and yours (including the kitties) this holiday season!
