A festive little kitty ......

Happy Sunday,

Well I may have been taking things easy on the craft front recently but, you'll be pleased to know nothing's changed ..... I'm still on the last minute with my challenge entries.  But hey .... at least I've been in the old craft room today!!!
There's been a little sorting out, and tidying up going on .... I can see my desk .... yeah!!!  Things have finally been put on shelves etc.,  and I've come across stuff I'd forgotten I had.  Let's hope I get the time, and the mojo to make use of them.

I'll apologise now if this post seems a little rushed, or I seem distracted ..... it's just I'm trying to blog whist watching the football!!  I can't wait until the match is over .... challenge deadline approaching FAST!!!!  and my boys in blue are playing Arsenal ...... it's currently 0-0 and we're just past the hour mark!

Anyway, enough of the football, what have I got for you today?  Well I know the sun is shining and it's still April but I'm starting back with my festive makes ..... I've missed the last 4 Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenges due to moving house etc., I didn't want to miss another one.

This week's challenge is .......

Hmmmm .... not an easy one for me but, here goes ......

The stamp is from Penny Black ..... coloured using Distress Inks mixed with a little water

I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the baubles and sprinkled on some fine crystal glitter

Added one of my favourite Hero Arts sentiments ......

And finished off using one of my favourite techniques at the moment ..... a few ink splatters here and there .....

Oooh .... we had a chance there!  Sorry ... I was watching the match then!

Well that's another Christmas card done .... I've a bit of catching up to do with the challenges I've missed but I'll get there.

Thanks for popping by .....enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm off to watch the last 15 minutes of the game ...... it's still 0-0 but whether it'll end that way who knows!!

Cheerio until next time



  1. It's good to see that you've been able to get to your craft desk again, Linda! This kitty looks to be in big trouble, LOL, he's so cute! Love all the glitter flying around! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday! Hope your team wins!

  2. Love the kitty and love the font and its' sentiment! Great Christmas card! :)

  3. This is so cute, what a fun image. Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday this week.

  4. Penney Black has adorable critters and you really colored this one up beautifully. Love him/her with the Wplus9 sentiment. Fact is, love the whole card.

  5. Ah, ending up 0-0 isn't too bad, I doubt anyone could take the trophy off them... just sad they have to take it from MCFC - but hey ho, there is always next year!

    I just adore that PB stamp and you have coloured it beautifully. Love your card! Hope you have a great week. Hugs, Anne xx

  6. Cute card Linda - great to see you crafting again.

  7. Glad to hear you are getting settled and your craft room is slowly coming together. Such a cute Christmas kitty! I know I've see a few cats up in the Christmas trees over the years...and a few trying to topple over, too! Beautiful card!

  8. Well done for shorting out, it feels so good doesn't it? Everyone with a cat will identify with this cat up a tree image. A fun card.

  9. I love this card, the image is so cute and I really like your sentiment too.

  10. Stunning card which really made me smile, as our tabby cat strips the Christmas tree of baubles at least twice a day during the holiday season!
