Non-Christmas Image for Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas

     So today is another of the curves Beccy throws out to compensate for the 4 days without alphabet prompts during the 30 Days of Christmas.  Today the requirement is to use an image which is NOT a Christmas or holiday image and use it for a holiday/Christmas card.

     Honestly, it took me longer to decide what image(s) to use than it did to color and create the card.  How many of you could guess that I'd choose felines for my card?  There are 2 separate images here, one is Alley Cat and the other is Moggie, both from Beccy's Cattitude set.  The sentiment can be blamed only on me but with those facial expressions, what else could it be?  Such disbelief and discouragement!  :-D

I love this cat set and how you colored them like calicos. Great sentiment too. Clever take on the non-traditional prompt.

This is so creative NC, well done! I love the sentiment you created to go with the image, I'm sure that's exactly what they're thinking. Love the addition of the snowflakes, the white card looks great against the vibrant red. Love it!

Poor kitties! I’m sure they are on Santa’s good list, and someone has pulled a naughty prank on them. Cute card, Connie and fantastic sentiment. Hugs, de

The dog must have sent this card to those darling cars. Of course Santa brings presents to good little cats. They like a stocking of catnip and toys.

Perfect Connie. Very clever and yes, the sentiment is perfect and yes. I would not expect anything but kitties. I think I would be disappointed if you had gone in a different direction. haha
