Meow-ry Christmas

     In my home, no Christmas celebration would be complete if it didn't include the fur babies.  This sweet little image from The East Wind is purrfect!


I used the sketch from CAS on Sunday.



     This time I colored the image with Copics and added a bit of shine to the ornament with glitter gel ink (hard to see in the photo.)  The image is fussy cut and layered to a scrap piece of dp from my Christmas stash.  I rounded the corners with a punch.  All of that is adhered to the front of a white card, and I distressed the edges with ink.  Very CAS design but how could I cover up those gorgeous, embossed-gold snowflakes with anything else?

     Have a wonderful week and just stop counting the days left before Christmas.  You'll either get everything done or you won't, and nobody will blame you in the midst of the spirit of Christmas.  :-D  Enjoy, life's short!   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
