Wreck the Halls

Hi there 🙂 A senior friend of mine adopted a kitty last year, after her other one crossed the rainbow bridge. I don’t think that she remembered what a ball of energy a kitten can be!! Her little Mikey is a real terror, but the smiles he brings to her face are just the best <3 I had to make a card for her with her little terror on it, so I used a cute image from Graciellie Designs. I used my Copics to color up the kitty from the Meowy Christmas digital set to look like Mikey, and added some sparkle to the hat for some festive bling.

I just got some new dies, so had to give a few of them a play on this card! I cut out a bunch of Christmas ornaments from the one set, and layered them on another piece of white paper to give a faux embossed look. I added little touches of Wink of Stella to them to add a bit of sparkle. I then framed this background with another new die cut, the paw print frame seemed to be perfect for this card! To finish off, I grabbed another new die, the sentiment, and after positioning it on the card, I added a more “correct” word in handwriting on a banner die. My friend knew just who the troublemaker on the card was when she received it!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  3. Oh I know all about reintroducing kittens to the home. They are incredibly fun, but certainly keep you on your toes. Ours still use our bodies as trampolines to wherever they’re trying to reach – a year later! Wonderful card, and the perfect sentiment!
