Have Yourself a "Meowy" Little Christmas


There's another exciting new release, especially for us cat lovers, at The East Wind today called Aurora 'meow meow'.  EEEK!  LOVE!  Look at that face, and that cozy kitty hat.  Adorable!  (Again...eeek!!!)  She's cut and matted with Spellbinders Grand Labels 3 and I've cut the top off and added a punched paw print border.  She, and her three, are surrounded by more die cut kitties, the small ones from Impression Obsession, and the large pouncing cat from Poppystamps as she wanders through her winter wonderland.  Is this one cat short of crazy?  Nah!



Here's a closeup of the adorable Aurora 'meow meow'.  She's colored with Copics and I've gotta say, it took all kinds of restraint not to flock her kitty hat.
As I told you before, I love to flock (check out my last two posts) but this time tried to get that fleecy feel but using the dotty technique.  It screamed pink to me, in fact many of the DT who colored her for today seemed to lean towards pink.

So the big day is nearly here.  Is everyone excited?  I must say I'm actually quite relieved that my shopping is done (not wrapping, but hey, I'm not Supergirl) and for once I've finished decorating BEFORE Christmas Eve.  Yea me!  Maybe I'll even get it all down by Valentine's Day.  (Don't hold your breath. LOL)

Had a bit of a scare when Goliath fell ill with an intestinal bacterial infection and for several days both he and I were nearly "cat"atonic.  But all's well now.  

Not sure if this will be my last post before Christmas, or not, so to all my friends and followers, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and wonderful New Year.

I'm entering this in the Die Cut Diva's December Warm and Cozy challenge, Simon Says Wednesday Die Crazy, Crafty Calendar Let it Snow, Simon Says Monday Winter Wonderland, DL.Art December Linky Challenge, the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Girly Girly Challenge, Lemon Shortbread ATG, TTRCD week of Dec 22 ATG, Tuesday Throwdown ATG, A Snowflakes Promise Winter Our Crafty Corner Winter/ATG and Crafting from the Heart ATG.

My dear friend Ike, of Ike's Art, has also started a new cats only blog called Show us Your Pussies and I'm thrilled to be joining in her first challenge there, as well.

  4. I can see why... I think I would want to flock her also. But the card is still adorable. The image is so cute and love the colors. Glad Goliath is doing okay, not fun when they get sick. I know I worry about mine also. Thanks for joining us at Twisted Thursday.
