Have a Meowy Christmas

Hello Peeps!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far!  I have another vintage Christmas card to share with another image from Nicecrane Designs' Kittens and Puppies on Christmas digital image pack.  These images are simply adorable, and although I do have a soft spot for everything feline, this cute kitty would be hard to resist regardless!  The images are already coloured, so it makes for easy, quick and beautiful cards.

Image - Kittens and Puppies on Christmas from Nicecrane Designs.  I added a little glitter to the berries using a clear atyou Spica pen (Copic).
Paper - white Bazzill and DP is from Close to my Heart.  Edges were distressed and inked with antique linen and pumice stone DI's.
Stamps - flourish from Tim Holtz Urban Chic set stamped with pumice stone
Other - red rhinestones from stash, the beautiful clear faceted button is from Stampin' Up (LOVE these!), the poinsettia was made using the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die, holly is a cut file from My Scrap Chick, and branches are a punch from McGill.

I would like to enter this card in these fun challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky - make your own flowers
Card Crafter's Circle - Christmas in July
Simon Says Stamp and Show - no rules
Divas by Design - anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - cats and dogs

Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I love reading them and visiting you back!  I still have a bit of catching up to do, but I will promise I will get to all of your blogs shortly:)

Another beautiful vintage card; (for me) it is perfect... vintage but not overladen with embellies, Donna ☺

Would be about time to start with Xmas cards for me too....

That image is beautiful (I, too, have a soft spot for felines, being owned by 2 of them). You've made a lovely card. Thank you for entering it in this week's Christmas challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

I won't be able to thank you fully for the articles on your web-site. I know you'd put a lot of time and energy into all of them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I could do the same for someone else sometime.
