Just a Cat

This is exactly how I feel a lot of the time around Christmas!  LOL!  Actually, I love the holiday but it really has a way of getting somewhat hectic too.

This is a stamp from Stampendous that I've had for a while and just love the look of this little guys face!  The sketch is from Merry Monday (Challenge 35) and I'll enter it in their challenge.  I need to kick it up a notch on making cards for Christmas as it's going to be here before we know it!


I love this sketch and will probably use it for cards other than Christmas too.


Thanks for stopping by..........(Not very chatty today for some reason - but will be back before you know it).

Lynn, What a face!! I love it. This whole card is so cheery even though this little guy looks so tired and sad. Your patterned papers just bring enough flair to set them off and the snowflake and the snowflake embossing are great finishing touches. I'm trying to catch up myself, but time just keeps slipping away. enjoy the day.
