Simply Christmas #9

Nearly there - are you making your Christmas cards, or are you all into Halloween mode?

Today's card is using a digital stamp from Angelique's blog Sliekje's digi Stamps.  All of Angelique's digital stamps are free and they are all so wonderful, please go check out her blog.

This was so cute, I just couldn't resist sharing this one with you.


I uses my pencils and Gamsol to colour the cat image.  Getting better, don't you think?


The two layers beneath the cat, were cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 54) rectangles were cut at 4.75" by 4" and 4.25" by 3.5".  I then embossed these layers with my Cuttlebug and the snowflakes folder.

The first two layers are from a Recollections stack called Bright Christmas.

I also did the inside of my card - I really do need to start to doing this and want to come up with something I can do in all my cards.  I will get there.


A little bit of ribbon to finish off, with the sentiment of course.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

Just Keep On Creating - Christmas is Around the Corner (closes 30 Nov)

Digi Haven - October Challenge Anything Goes all month! (closes 31 Oct)

3 Girl Jam - Challenge #4: Anything Goes (with ribbon, of course) (closes 18 Oct)

Pixie Dust Studio - Challenge Anything Goes (closes 11 Oct)

Delightful Challenges - Challenge Winter Holiday (closes 10 Oct)

Every Day is an Occasion - Sunday Funday #2 Linky Party

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  17. Adorable little Christmas card, Karon. I've made Christmas cards but mostly for Operation Write Home, though I've kept a few for myself to use. I think I've finished making Halloween unless there are a few more challenges or design teams that ask for them. Ha, ha. This freebie kitten with the mouse on the hat is so cute. Thanks so much for joining in on our October Anything Goes challenge over on Digi Haven!
