Happy Monday! I recently discovered Sami Stamps and couldn't wait to play with a new freebie, Kitten Fun. I guess because I've been on a July Christmas kick, this image brought to mind many memories of sharing Christmas with our cats over the years. You never knew what mischief you would find in the morning when you weren't around to guard the Christmas tree. Keeping that thought in mind, I merged a CDS ornament over the ball, added a compurter-generated sentiment, and this image was ready for Christmas!
I colored the image with Copics, colored pencils and pastels. For some unexpected fun I added glitter to the cat's belly. The background and Christmas tree were embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. My Christmas tree die cut was made using a die from Taylored Expressions. I also used Spellbinders dies to die cut the fishtail and image.
I would like to enter my card i the following challenges:
Sami Stamps Challenge #003 -- Curious Things
Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge - July (GCC0722) -- Embossing
Cut It Up Challenge #23 -- Christmas in July (I added die cuts made with Spellbinders and Taylored Expressions dies.)
Hope everyone has a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
