Ellie with Kittens

Hello, everyone!  Although I haven't felt motivated to make cards lately, there was no way I could miss the final Rudolph Day of the year!  I managed to get my act together to make this card featuring the November image for the Progressive Freebie Challenge at The Outlawz.  I received this image for free because I participated in last month's challenge - thank you!  


I coloured the image (Ellie with Kittens from The Paper Nest Dolls) with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape.  I used dies, patterned paper, glitter paper, and an embossing folder from my stash.  I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word, and I finished the card with three red snowflake sequins and a teal gem adhered to the bow.  My card design was inspired by Week 637 at Sketch Saturday:


I would also like to support the following 7 challenges, for a total of 10:

Super CUTE card! The image is adorable... Sorry, you're not feelng up to crafting.. I totally get it... I've been there done that a million times too! Even now... I finally have a small craft space to work in and yet no motivation.... I think remodeling this house has drained me. I hope you're up to crafting real soon! HUGS!

Fabulous card Kitty! I totally get that you've not been feeling up to crafting, there's a lot of us feeling like that at the moment. I'm loving this card, with all it's different elements, especially the sparkly glitter card. I'm looking forward to seeing what next month's image brings!

I've been missing your beautiful cards so glad to see you do one before the end of the month. This is the first year that I was able to do Rudolph Days each month. Wonders will never cease. LOL! I love the way you colored your kitties. Just so cute. Great take on the sketch. Hope you are well. We are in quarantine right now from a possible exposure through the twins. One of their classmates tested positive and then we had them for a day before they found out about it. Not much going on right now so we aren't missing much. Have a super weekend! Stay safe and healthy!

What a wonderful idea to create a Christmas card with the image Kitty. I am sorry that you have lost your mojo a bit lately. Hopefully it will return again soon!
I like the embossing in the background and the polka dot bows.
Take care.
