Happy Pawlidays

Hello, everybody! I'm back again today with another card!  I'm still going strong with the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards!  Today I am jumping ahead to "X" and I went with XO.  Beccy also has a few other non-alphabet challenges which I need to catch up on.  So much inspiration, so little time!

My card features Bugaboo Digi Stamps - Winter Cat, which I coloured with my markers (Bic Mark-its and Dollarama Crafts) and then fussy-cut. I hand-cut a sparkly snowbank so he had a place to sit. The tag die is from Gina Marie Designs, and the patterned paper is from Forever in Time Holiday Trendz. I adhered three tiny banners and stamped "xo" (Clearly Besotted) on the white one. I stamped a punny sentiment (My Favorite Things) at the lower right corner.  The white panel is embossed with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow, and I finished off the card with a number of punched snowflakes topped with gems.  

I was inspired by Bugaboo Digi Stamps - Catch the Bug - Stella Says Sketch 719:

I was also inspired by Bugaboo Digi Stamps - Catch the Bug - November Bingo, and I went with sentiment, embossing, and sparkle:

I would also like to support the following challenges: A Perfect Time to Craft AG UE; Arty Divas AG 3/5; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use Glitter UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Crimbo Crackers Animals 2/2; Cute Card Thursday Winter UE; Dragonfly Dreams Christmas/ Winter UE; Love to Scrap AG 5/5; Penny's Paper-crafty 457 AG 2/3; Show Us Your Pussycats Furrything Goes UE; The Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas UE; Tuesday Throwdown Punny Sentiments 1/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Such a sweet kitty. I don't think I've seen this digi before. Great take on the sketch.

Love the monotone colour scheme Kitty, the toned red is gorgeous. The image you used is adorable and you did a great job with the colouring. I like that you created a little snowbank for him to sit on, it works perfectly with the embossed background. Love the addition of the individual snowflakes and their sparkly rhinestone centres. Wonderful job!
