Christmas at Squirrel Towers

I've made that many Christmas cards in the last few weeks that it is starting to feel more like October than August!  Except this morning it is somewhat humid out in the studio (oh, all right, the conservatory) and even with the windows open I was starting to drip.  Not very Christmassy!

LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES are back on track this week with a new challenge for Christmas In July and rather than post the original card I made for this challenge last week I have made a new one.


Ingredients for this one are:
Stamped Image  LOTV Light The Way
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers Making Cards magazine freebies
Sentiment  Craftwork Cards
Extras  Martha Stewart punched snowflakes and Anita's Glitterations borders

I've got a very clingy and miaowy little kitty today, not quite sure what's got under his fur but it is like having a Velcro pet.  Where I am, he is!  He can be ultra cute, but when you are busy, he can be quite the opposite!  Don't worry, I still love him.

Hugs, Sxx

Love the blues on this one, Squirrelly Girl! I spent too much on LOTV stamps on this new release, but I didn't pick up this one... and now I'm regretting it! Beautiful coloring as always and I love that little silver glitterations border. Festive sparkle! =) Mwah! ~Beansie

Oh, those clingy cats. I've had one recently because the sky keeps growling. If it growls enough even being glued to her mom isn't enough, she'll have to go hide under the covers. One time all my kitties were really, really awful and evil all day long just any trouble they could brew up they could and in the way...! Later we heard that there was an earthquake that could be detected by seismographs that day. I guess kitties are as sensitive as seismographs.

Anyway this is a fun card. All the dots give it such a snowy feel. I hope it cooled you down some making it.

This is so sweet, that image always seems a little cheeky to me for some reason! I love your colourscheme too :)
