I said in my last post that I wasn't going to make any more cards this week or enter any more challenges as I wanted to work on updating my blog. There are do many things that I have not discovered how to do. How to get the winners badges on my blog for a start off. But I just had to have a go at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Christmas Animals challenge. I had this little stamp of a cat for ages now and never used it so I tried to think of a way I could use it in this challenge. I wanted to put her sitting in front of a fire, but decided making the fire would be very time consuming and it might look rubbish at the end, so I just stamped and embossed her, masked her off and then sponged a background in fire colours, I used Stampin' Up's Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil delight. The tree is from Stampin' Up's Lovely as a tree. This is a lovely set and I use it often. I added a little red glitter and a bow and there we are. Quite a cheerful little card I think and the little cat looks very pleased with herself, so perhaps it is nice and warm by the 'fire'!
