Cat's Christmas

     It's Thursday and we have a new challenge starting at Aud Sentiments today.  We have a sketch for our theme this fortnight and we have two sponsors: Lacy Sunshine and Stitchy Bear.  They each provided images for the DT and the one I used is "Kat Tree" by Ike's Art, sold through Stitchy Bear.

Here's our sketch, and I used the colors from Catch the Bug.

     I don't know about any of you but sharing my living space with felines often means that they will claim as "theirs" things which were originally meant for human enjoyment.  That includes things like beds, clean laundry just out of the dryer (in a basket waiting to be folded), embellishment flowers left unattended on the craft desk, and most especially, the Christmas tree in whatever stage of adornment it is when the shiny baubles catch their eye.

     Obviously, this image was something I had to use for another Christmas card.   Colored with ProMarkers, die cut using a border die from Spellbinders along one side, and matted with forest green CS.  The green snowflake was also cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The sentiment says it all!  :-D

     I hope we're going to see you playing along at Aud Sentiments.  That sketch is so versatile!   Check out the DT samples this week to see how each card is clearly based on the sketch but they all look so different.  Then get inspired and do a card for the challenge.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

    My Furbaby has a tendency to sit on any paper he sees, including the one I am usually trying to colour lol. Though when he come for kisses and cuddles I forgive him. Thank you for joining us this week at Glitter N Sparkle. Good Luck and all the best.
