The Cat's Christmas Card

This is going to be a long day – which may require a nap. I woke up at 5:00 this morning and could not get back to sleep so I got up, had breakfast, read the paper and it wasn’t even 6:30 yet.  Needless to say I was a little tired by 10:00 but we went for a walk downtown anyway – about an hour and a half walk. Yup, I just may lie down and rest the eyes for awhile. I normally cannot sleep during the day but a rest will be good.

Today is Bellariffic Friday and she gave us a sketch to follow this time. Here’s my card – and I used the sketch!

 I decided to make mine into a Christmas card. The image is from Stamping Bella, of course, and I coloured it with Prismacolor markers and gamsol. Die cuts are Spellbinders. Stamps for the sentiments are from Paper Wishes. Paper is from a pack from the thrift store so likely not in stock anymore. I bought a huge pile of paper from the thrift store last fall. The designer paper and wine coloured paper was 12” and I decided once I cut into them, I may as well keep making Christmas cards with it instead of adding it to the stash. I think I made at least 6 Christmas cards from 3 sheets of 12” paper and the green was 8 ½ x11 and I think I used 1 ½ sheets.  Love this image. This is the first time I’ve coloured it up and I have a few cat people on my Christmas list so I guess I’ll colour up a few more.

 Another Friday is here again. Have a great weekend everyone!

Those cats make me laugh! I can just imagine what kind of sounds they are making. What a score that you found your papers at a thrift shop; I'd love to find something like that. Great traditional red and green color combo. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
