It's Beginning

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well at least in card challenge land it is.   So I pulled out one of my S2G Christmas stamps that needed to see ink and made this card.  I love this kitty, I made him to look like my big fat kitty Shamus.  Do you think that's mean to call him that, well I call him that to his face.  I was going to ship him down to Florida with my daughter but the airline had a weight restriction for cats flying on board.  They had to be 10 pounds or less and fit under the seat.  Well, my dear Shamus weighs over 14 pounds so he and sweet little Memphis, who weighs less than 5 pounds will be going by van.  I hope that Shamus isn't telling anyone my weight!  I do entertain myself - remember I'm easily amused.
So here's the deets:
stamp - Shirley's 2 Girls "Everywhere I Go"
ink - CTMH Desert Sand; Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - dp Cosmo Cricket "Jolly By Golly"; cs DCWV
miscellaneous - Memory Box Jewel stickers snowflake bling; ribbon; TCP twine; button; charm; stickles; copics; Prismacolor watercolors

Here's the challenges:
Papertake Weekly #45 - sketch
Tuesday Taggers - Christmas in July
Raise the Bar #28 - Distressed, Torn, Ripped, Broken
Tuesday Throwdown #10 - Christmas in July

Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll come back again.  If you have a second to spare click on the pink ribbon before you leave, it'll help fund a mammogram for someone who cannot afford one.
