Kitty Noel

     Let me tell you a Christmas story.  Once Upon a Time there was a baby kitten who was born on a cold, December night and the family promptly dubbed him "Noel" and wrapped him in a Santa cap to keep him warm.  For all their good intentions, Noel turned out to be a female but the family kept the name, changing the pronunciation to the more feminine "NoEl" and loved the bright orange fur ball just as much as ever, despite the fact that she pulled ornaments off the tree at every opportunity.

     Here's her portrait, caught red handed (red-pawed?) with the ornament in her grasp.  :-D


     Colored with pencils and ProMarkers, then cut with a Gina Marie die.  Papers from my Christmas stash and I have no idea how long I've had them but more than 4 years, I guarantee it.

     I double wrapped narrow, green ribbon around the Noel paper and tied a double loop bow.
