Merry Christmas!

Hello Crafty Friends,

As this Christmas day comes to an end I wanted to be sure I wished all of you who follow me a Merry Christmas.  Making cards is one of the ways I try to share my gifts with others. Christmas is one of the best times to share our creative gifts as we send cards to those we love.  My cards were late this year for many reasons, but I decided it would be okay.  The sentiment and meaning is still there even if it is just a few days behind.  I wanted to share at least one more card with you before this lovely holiday ends. If you are a pet fan then this card is for you!

I did not send to many of these cards due to the amount of coloring required, but for those individuals who are super pet lovers like me ( I have four cats!) this was the card for them! This stamp is part of the Santa Paws stamp set and I think it is just utterly adorable.  The inside of the card says ” Have a Meowy Christmas and a Yappy New Year”  Too cute, right? I used the Stampin’ Up Blends to color in all of the animals and Christmas items on the stamp.  Did you know these are available now?  They sure are!  They allow you to color with such ease. I layered my colored image onto paper from the Be Merry DSP. I then layered this with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  I finished things off by adding leaves, berries and bows from the Pretty Pines Thinlits and coloring pearls with my Cherry Cobbler Blends for a little extra interest on the berries.

I hope you have had a fabulous Christmas and your New Year is filled with blessings!
