A Purrrrfect Christmas

Finally having a crafty Saturday!!  Perfect weather for it.  Rainy and cold.  
Today my card inspiration was  my daughter's new little fur-baby.  He's a darling little guy, although a typical naughty kitty! 

Here he is hiding out under her Christmas tree. I swear he's smiling!

And here is my card paying homage to all the Christmas kitties out there who make our holidays interesting!

I had fun combining stamp sets for this card.  I used images and sentiments from four Paper Smooches sets: Chubby Chums, Merry Motifs, Zoo Crew, and Warm Hearts. It was a challenge to mask off the sentiments from three separate stamps to combine just the words I needed.  I don't have a problem cutting some stamps, but these would have been difficult. Instead I used some strategically placed painter's tape and, literally prayed it would stamp out all right!

I'm entering this in this week's Anything Goes challenge over on the Paper Smooches Blog.  I'm always so inspired by the creativity shown by the other entries!!

Have a nice day!

  4. Definitely smiling! He looks so happy under the tree and on the card (wink)!

  5. That kitty is totally smiling! And looking for trouble. My gray fur-baby decided he wanted to be the angel at the top of the tree. The tree was not cooperative. This card is so sweet and captures the very essence of Christmas with kitties.
