Oh Humbug...


Hey there!

Back in October I made a card using the Snarky Cat Halloween stamps from Tim Holtz. These bug-eyed kitties that he does totally win me over with their crazy cuteness and slightly twisted sense of humor. So when Simon Says Stamp did a Christmas collaboration set for Stamptember, I had to get it. For my card today I masked this grumpy cat onto the present and added the bird to his tail before coloring in the toppled Christmas tree in the background. Now I'm not saying he is responsible for this Christmas catastrophe but if he is, he sure doesn't appear to be sorry about it, LOL! I also had fun coloring scratch marks into the wrapping paper on the present. Apparently someone is getting impatient for Christmas morning to arrive. Because I had so much going on below I was at a bit of a loss for what to do in the top half of the card. Every color or background idea just felt like a distraction, so in the end I went CAS and left it the clean, bright white of the card stock.  :)

Well thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely Wednesday!

This cute card made me chuckle. Love all the mischief this crazy cat has reeked on this Christmas scene. And, I love that you left the upper part white. It makes everything else really stand out. Fun and fabulous.
