Santa's Cats

     At first glance, you might think these cats are waiting for Santa to come down the chimney but they are actually Santa's cats and they worry about him when he's gone on his Christmas Eve travels. They always wait anxiously, watching from the upstairs window for him to return.  Of course, this year they seem to have to contend with a snowstorm!

     This is my second post today and also my third card for the Cat Lovers Hop.  This precious image is from Ike's Art. 


     Colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then cut with a stitched die from Die-namics.  Sentiment printed and added to the bottom of the image.  Everything mounted onto an embossed card front.  Left CAS to showcase the image and for ease of mailing.

Pretty card and love the pictures of all the kitties on the branch. Thanks for joining our challenge this month at Let's Craft and Create and good luck. Michelle x

Janis said...

What a clever and creative way to interpret this wonderful digi from Ike!!! I love your coloring and that perfect sentiment. These kitties look like they might have some Siamese in them (by their long angular shape) and Siamese seem to especially worry in the absence of their slaves. "Who's going to feed us?????" lol...
