Merry Christmas…

So, I hardly post all year and then flood you with posts at Christmas. Yep, that’s the way I roll, folks :-)

Another Nichol Magouirk inspired card. No embossing paste this time, just heat embossed snow in the background. I stamped the trees using some Tsukineko dye ink, added a little Cranberry Stickles for ornaments, and stamped the greeting in black ink. The stamps are from Simon Says Stamp. They were part of the December Card kit, but I didn’t get the whole kit, just the stamps.

Yes, more kitties. This time from Newton’s Nook. This one was inspired by this card. Newston is adorable and since he is smaller, he was a little easier to color. I even managed a few striped this time.

This would be the scene at our house if we had a wreath or a tree up this year.

This is why I say that. Meet Abby (the black one) and Tigger:

We lost Mr. Nibbles in an accident a little over a month ago and David talked me into getting 2 kittens. They are brother and sister, and totally adorable. Little bundles of endless energy! Sheldon is not impressed, but he will come around eventually.

So, no tree and fancy decorations this year. It would be too tempting for small kittens and too nerve wracking for us, trying to keep them away from it.
