Merry Kitty-mas

‘Tis the Season’ over at Craft Your Passion this week.So we look forward to all your Christmas projects.We have 2 fabulous sponsors – Simply Betty Stamps and Letraset!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

I’ve printed the totally gorgeous Merry London from Simply Betty Stamps onto kraft card and coloured her with Copic Ciaos with highlights in white gel pen.This image has such an appeal and would make a great card for any cat loving girl. Just to add some extra interest I cut around the cute kitty.I usually take one design and just mix up the colours,images,embellies and such when making my Christmas cards but I’ve tweaked the layout to accommodate the image here.
