'Tis the Season

Hello, everybody!  This month I am making a lot of winter and holiday cards!  A big inspiration for me has been Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards!  The annual challenge always inspires me - thank you, Beccy!  This is her 7th year and I'm hoping we can beat the record 864 entries she had last year!  If you're not playing along, why not go check it out!  It's an Alphabet Challenge and I'm doing Day 11 - "I" for Ice!

This sweet image is digital clipart from TheDigitalChick on Etsy. I've been using a lot of these for my cards this month!  I love this retro-style kitty - he looks so cute and reminds me of a storybook from my childhood!  Ooops, the skating kitty has slipped on the ice!  I fussy-cut the fallen kitty and popped him up on foam tape.  The square scene background behind the kitty is from The Paper Shelter - Holy Night, and the sentiment is from Deedee's Digis. I used a couple of dies here from Memory BoxStitched Tree Horizon, as well as the offcut snowflakes from Snowy Scene. The patterned paper is from MME Winter Wonderland.

I would also like to support the following challenges: Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use Some Glitter UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; DL.ART November Linky UE 1/d; Gem of a Challenge AG 3/3; Outside the Box - Memory Box Challenge 55 - Patterned Paper 1E; Penny's Paper-crafty 456 AG 2/3; Show Us Your Pussycats Furrything Goes UE; The Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas UE The Paper Shelter 406 Christmas Spirit 1/3; Wednesday's Creative Inspirations Winter Blues UE; Word Art Wednesday 412-413 AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 3/5

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

P.S. to my Followers:  I'm a bit behind in my visiting and I'm hoping to get caught up in the next couple of days, so I'll see you soon!

That image is definitely sweet and I love the blue and red together. Delightful card!

Beccy said...

Love the cute image Kitty, he sure knows how to fall over with style and grace! The background is fabulous with all the winter fir trees, and I love the way you've extended the image with the die cuts. The borders are really pretty too and give the image panel a pretty, lacy look.

Darling image and like how you did a double scene, stunning!

I love the vintage look, too. It's so cute. Of course, blue and white. Lovely!

My first favorite book was "The Three Little Kittens". I hated when they lost their mittens but was happy when they later found them. [Bunny]

A super card, such a fun image.
Regarding the comment you left on my blog about the free papers from Making Cards Magazine - they are only available for the month that the magazine is available, unfortunately I am not allowed to share my cards until the next magazine is published and the floral papers are no longer available - if you follow the Making Cards Magazine Facebook page you will be able to download the papers each month, there is a link on the left side -
I hope this helps.

Kitty this is adorable. You have such wonderful cat images! Yesterday I went to a funeral and had to walk quite a distance to the church and I was afraid that is how I was going to look, but luckily my prayers were answered and I didn't fall, whew.
