The Christmas Cat


Well, it's a fabulous Friday around here and I thought I'd leave everyone a smile going into the weekend! Things have a tendency to get crazy around Christmas time so thought this little guy would remind everyone what they have to look forward to in a few months.....yes, Christmas will be here before you know it!

The image is from Stampendous (Fluffles the Cat). For the layout I used OWH Sketch 20. After I stamped this image, I stamped it again and cut out the ornaments and popped them up (although you probably can't really see that in the photograph). NEVER again will I do that. Those little babies are so tiny to have to cut out! WOW.

Anyway, hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

Thanks for stopping by...............

Awww, he is adorable hanging on the garland!! LOL about cutting out the little ornaments! Don't ya hate it when you are 1/2 way through and you want to abandon the whole idea - but you're 1/2 way through and you know the finished product will look great!? (and it does!!!)

Have a great day! TGIF!!

What a great sketch. I like that Fluffles image. I don't think I've seen that one before. I can see where you popped up the ornaments. I agree, sometimes they get too small to bother with.
