I seldom combine challenges, but these two: CAS Christmas February 2021, and Christmas Kickstart #47 are so easily combined, I simply had to!
CAS Christmas is asking for Cats or Dogs, and Christmas Kickstart a slimline design - here's how I put them together using those sweet mittened-kittens from Colorado Craft Company's Kittens and Mittens! and their coordinating dies. Let's start with a closeup...So happy these three little kittens DIDN'T lose their mittens!
You can't imagine how much I wanted to add ruffled borders, and more - but this card is being sent to a good friend who had a terrible diving accident last Summer. He will appreciate it just the way it is.... though he may be more partial to dogs! oops!
All you need is the perfect image! Great card, Michele - such fun. Thanks for playing again at Christmas kickstart, Jo x
Oh my...such adorable perfectly colored kittens and their mittens. Reminds me of the classic children's book...my copy was "dog"-eared, I read it so many times as a kid. And the texture you've added to the background panel is awesome. Such a sweet, happy card. Makes me smile just looking at it.
Oh my gosh, these little kitties are adorable. That CCC really knows how to tug at our heartstrings with their images! Your friend will love it!
Look at those sweeties Michele, your colouring is wonderful!!
Fabulous combination of challenges, Michele. ANd thanks for the inspiration that not the whole slimline needs to be illustrated.
Super cute kitties and I really love how you colored them, Michele! Great job combining challenges, too, my friend...Adorable card! So happy you played along with us at CAS Christmas ~ xx
Sweet little kittens, polka dots and mittens... what's not to love here! I think your friend will. Goodness, I sure hope he's doing okay.
I've got these kittens in mittens stamps and have yet to use them - possibly because it's the middle of summer here! Adorable card, Michele!
Oh goodness, how fun is this? Wonderful card, Michele. I'm sure your friend will appreciate your thoughtfulness. And I hope they have a full recovery whtn all is said and done. You've colored up the kitties wonderfully. They each have their own personality. The expression on theone with blue shoes is SO cute. Thanks so much for sharing, Michele. Glad you could combine the two challenges in a fun way. :)
Purrrrrrrfect Michele!! I love that image and you've colored it so beautifully too! And gotta love it when one card works for two challenges!! Fun and fabulous card my friend!! Hugs. :0)
These kittens are adorable with their mittens, Michele! The little polka dots make for a great background!
This is a cute, cute, cute card Michele! I love those cats, you are such a great colorist as these cats are colored to perfection! Love the slimline design and your paper choice. I'm sure your friend will still love the card even though it's cats and not dogs. lol I hope he is doing better since his accident. Hugs, Brenda
Such cute kittens all bundled up for playtime in the snow. Such a sweet sentiment too for your friend. I am sure your friend will appreciate his one of a kind card. TFS my friend. Love and Hugs..Nancy
So very cute! This will be a fun and jolly card to receive. So glad you joined us at Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Elf- Arlene
Sorry to hear about your friend and his diving accident x. This card will surely cheer him up as it is adorable and made with love x.
This is darling! He’ll love the kitties. (Psst...I just ordered my first stamps from Colorado Crafts this past weekend. 😄)
Aaaawwwwww! Love me some mittened kittens! Too adorable, and I'm sure just what the doctor ordered, Michele -- really cute
No-one would be able to resist this gang of kittens (who look as if they are up to no good and will probably trail home a couple of hours later having lost their mittens...!) A fabulous card Michele and I do wish your pal a speedy recovery. Vicky x
Hi there! I love this simple treatment and the stitched embossing is perfect! Great coloring and such a sweet card!
Hugs - Rachelle
