Kitty Christmas*

Good morning everyone!! It has been a heck of a month!!  I can't believe we are almost finished with October!!  That is just crazy! Halloween is a week away.. not that we celebrate LOL but a week away!!  My kids are too big now... they do parties or hang out with their friends. Michael will be working on Halloween! I'm sure that will be a busy day/evening!! With all of the kids activities and getting Open-Minded Crafting Fun ready for launch in January, it has been a busy month. Today is Bailey's last Fall Lacrosse game, so there won't be any running around to games for a bit.

Today I plan on just having a relaxing, craft and race filled day at home! Michael has to go to work later in the morning, but after that I shouldn't have to go anywhere! We have the V8 race today...qualifying, the Top 10 Shootout and one race I believe. Then we also have free practice 3 and 4 and qualifying for the MotoGP riders. It will be a great day!!

If you are interested in a Design Team, consider visiting Open-Minded Crafting Fun for the DT Call. We are looking for six (6) additional members. We would LOVE to have you come join our team!! One more week on the DT Call. It will end on the 31st.

Here is my card today:

This card uses Mistletoe Kitty from Imagine That!. This adorable little Christmas Cat is the October Digi Image of the Month. Hmmm... I just realized I forgot to glitter that bell! LOL I'll have to go back and do that! I added some poinsettia stickers on the top corner. All of the papers are from my scrap box. I made a scrap box of Christmas scraps LOL I thought I would go ahead and separate them so it would be easier for me to go through them. The papers are silver and black/gray. Off for Christmas colors. I added in the bit of red and green as well. The adorable Kitty is colored with my Copic Markers. I added a bit of twine and gems. Around the die cut cat I used some Aged Silver Embossing Powder from Stampendous. The die is from My Favorite Things. I also embossed the strip of silver with the twine wrapped around it. The stamps on the outside and inside are Fun 'N' Flair Stamps - "Miss Shayla at Christmas Time". I added a bit of glitter to the hat and I'm going to add that glitter to that bell too!! :D  Have a great day everyone!! And Thanks for looking!!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Fur: YR20, YR21, YR23, YR14, YR24, YR27
  • Cardinal: C5, C7, C9; R22, R24, R35, R29
  • Berries: R22, R24, R29
  • Hat: R22, R24, R35, R37, R29
  • Collar and Leaves: G12, G14, G17
  • Nose: R20, R22
