Meowy Christmas

Hello, everyone!  Today I have a kitty card to share!  I received this adorable image from The East Wind in their December newsletter - thank you, Unky, I love it! The East Wind is having their annual Meowy Christmas challenge, and you know I can't resist a kitty challenge!  On the subject of kitty challenges, the first one is underway over at Ike's Show Us Your Pussies Cats Only Challenge, and the theme is Krimbo Kitties, so you know I'm joining there as well!


I coloured the sweet image with Prismacolor pencils and die-cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. I added gold Wink of Stella to the ornament holder. The diagonal striped paper is from Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh in the Snow 6x6 paper pad. I stamped a greeting from Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats and curved it to fit the shape of the ornament.  The die-cut is Impression Obsession Pine Branch, and I added a few silver sequins.


Here my little elf Eli has sneaked into the photo. He is famous for photo-bombing me! I am sure if he could use my camera, he would be taking selfies all day long. He's eager to link up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky!  If you have a little elf, you will want to join the fun too!
