Christmas Kitties!!

(Click photo for a clearer picture)
Hello again, managed to find the time to make another card and I think this image is so cute. Its another from MagicMoonlight. I've made a 5 x 5 for a change and rather pleased how its turned out as I was just doing my own thing. The backing paper is the MME Signature Christmas Pad. I've added lots of Stickles, distressed the papers with the MM Distressing Tool and glossed the leaves on the holly. Again used my MM Slice to cut out the dotty paper. Think the "Merry Christmas" sentiment is Magnolia and the Christmas Circle Stamp is Inkadinado. I've had this set for many years and it always comes out for my crimbo cards.

Heres a list of challenges;
Lollipop Crafts - Welcome Winter
City Crafter - Let It Snow
ASFOS - Christmas Cards
PaperPlaytime - Snowflakes (backing paper)
Crazy Challenge - All I Want for Xmas is You
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Holiday Greetings
Pear Tree Designs - Winter Wonderland
Cutie Sunday - Red/Green
PaperCutz - 2 Patterened Papers, Any Colour
All That Scraps - Snowflakes (backing paper)
Stampavie - Snowflakes/Snow

I've so much to do over the next few days. Today I've got to make a start on packing. Bikini's and sunscreen don't feel right with the weather were having but I'm sure once I get going, holiday mode will kick in. A few more DT cards to make too, eek- feeling the pressure now!
Hope everyone's well and hope to get another card or 2 posted before I go away.

Have a great day!!
