Cat Lovers Hop 11 / Rudolph Day

Hello, everyone! Today is the final day for the Cat Lovers Hop, and I wanted to make some holiday kitty cards!  I made two, so stay tuned for another card today!  A special thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this fun event to celebrate our love of kitties!  I should also mention that it's time for Rudolph Days, hosted every month by the lovely Scrappymo!, and I definitely did not want to miss out!  (For an update on my husband's health, please see my blog post here.)


I didn't have a lot of time so I made this card with items I had in my stash which were originally destined for other cards.  Everything used on this card was at the ready, in my unfinished projects box, except for the punched shapes and stamping.  I love the cute vintage kitties!  The sentiment and snowflake stamps are from Newton's Nook Sweater Weather, and the ink is Your Next Stamp Holly Berry Red.  I used my Martha Stewart branch punch and Tim Holtz bow punch.  The embossing folder is Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow. I added a red gem to the bow and three red gems on the greenery to simulate berries.

  1. ABC Christmas V for Very Quick
  2. Cat Lovers Hop October 22-27 UE
  3. Crafty Creations AG 1/2
