Crafty Catz challenge ATG with optional Christmas

Good morning and welcome.
Firstly i would like to congratulate Chris and Christine on the safe arrival of their new memebers to the family.  2 beautiful girls so pop over and congratulate the Grandma and Great grandma
Now back to this weeks challenge
As always our challenge is 
Zora is our host this week and she has pick our optional twist if you care to take(just forfun)
We are sponsored this week by 

I have used a image I previously won but cant seem to find in the store so I have asked heather for a link. lets hope she adds as I am sure like me you will love it.
The image has come from the Strayz Collection.

I am on another mission to make some flat Christmas cards as i am sure the post office will put the cost up again before the day. Also helps sending across the water.
I coloured the image with promarkers and pencils
I cut the shape out of the DP which is from a old pad i with no front sorry
Matted onto the Mirricard which allowed it to form a frame
Cut the image out with the same die and trimmed the edge to allow a slight gap to show the mirri
Added a border of trees with a silver satin Merry Christmas and happy new Year sentiment on.
Stamped Winter wishes onto the DP and a few cuttlebug snowflakes.
I added some fluffy stuff to the hat and the trees have been glittered but doesnt show up
Do in this method the card base stays in much stronger with a strip adding extra strength at the base for standing. i do hate it when the slide open with the heat at Christmas dont you.
Dont forget to pop over to our sponsors shop 
Heather Valentin Colour of Love

I also want to say how sorry I am that Kath has lost Buddy he was such a big part of her blog and I will miss reading about what he got up to. I am sure he will be playing across rainbow bridge wait for her one day to catch the ball.

It is such a shame we have to eave off all our embellies coz of extortionate postage charges! I am doing the same lol. This is so cute and I love how you did the fur on the hat. Thanks for playing along with us at Crafty Animals. Lisa DT

This is wonderful Sue! Such a cute kitty, and I love that it's a side-on view. Beautiful paper and great design with the kitty frame cut out of the background and trimmed to leave a border. Actually, the more I look at your card, the more I love it! Tree border, snowflakes, ribbon - all beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely card with us at Morgan's Artworld Open Challenge
