Happy Holidays!!....High Hopes and Magnolia

Another very quick card.... I used High Hopes "Meowy Christmas" and Magnolia's "HV08 Christmas Fir" from Christmas Collection 2008. The sentiment is a SU stamp. Images are colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's

Meowy Christmas Kitty is popped up on foamy's. I used the snowflake CB folder for the base.

Paper - GP white, treasures cs

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel, barely banana

Accessories - brads, cord, foamy's, cb folder, glitter, scribbles

Christmas is just coming up so quickly. We are still living in a deep freeze....I really don't remember it being this cold before Christmas in years...especially for this length of time. Poor Santa..he's going to freeze his behind off coming around here...lol......I have lots of last minute things to get done so please forgive me for the short post.....I'm wrapping presents at the moment....almost done....I think....or rather hope anyway...Haa ha.

Have a Great Day Everyone and Thank you so much for your Wonderful comments!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Stunning card Ila! I love that kitty and your colouring is superb, the embossed panel makes a wonderful background and I love the shape of the card. Hope you're keeping warm and toasty in the big freeze and that all your wrapping is done, you're very organised, I still have that to do! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with you family Ila and happy new year too. Hugs, Chris x

Hi Ila, I love your card, its so sweet. I was lucky enough to receive a few stamped images from Nikki (bunny zoes blog)and this cute little kitty was one of them, to my shame I have not made one Christmas card this year, but I plan to make some New Year resolutions lol. Hope your keeping warm, its quite cold here in Scotland too, although its been pouring with rain the past few days. Hugs and Christmas wishes.DawnM.x

Your card is so beautiful!! I love it. I have started to try out the colored pencils with OMS and I love it. I seem to have better luck with a paintbrush, though. :)

Hey Ila, we're freezing out here as well. I think Canada is covered in snow and freezing temps from coast to coast. My children are gravely concerned for Santa's welfare! This card is stunning. Love the combo of those stamps together!
I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2009! Hugs Jeanette

Another lovely card. The elongated style is perfect! Donnie and I were just talking about how cold it is before Christmas this year two, and we couldn't remember such a white Christmas. Believe it or not, on Thursday it is going to be +7 and rain here. Weird, eh? Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Hugs,

Beth
