|Stray mama cat gives birth in bird nest! Story here. Two sizes too small is just the right size, apparently!|
And now for a different kind of cat in a different kind of nest.....
|Bobcat in Squirrel's Nest. That would be cool to see!!|
Here's one last Christmas card (didn't I say that already a couple of weeks ago??) before I get all my Christmas things tucked away. I made some others of this design, inspired by Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities, but I wanted to try one in red, too.
As with my blue snowflake ones, I used my Spellbinders - Carnival Dream die set with some Echo Park double-sided paper. This fun die set has a fold and tuck design so your reverse pattern shows. Instead of a snowflake, this red one reminds me of a stylized poinsettia. What do you think?
I die-cut a shimmery pre-made card base with my Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set and used repositionable adhesive to attach the "poinsettia" on the front so the ornament can be removed and hung on the tree, if desired. The scalloped edge of the die cut allows the card to stand up nicely. And....since the card base was an A2 size, this flat ornament card will fit in a standard sized envelope.
The addition of some sparkling rhinestones and silver ribbon trim was all that was needed to finish this card.
Well, that's all for right now. Thanks for stopping by. Hope your weather is better than ours! It is rainy and chilly here in Idaho today. Most of the snow has melted and it is very muddy.
The cats are all lying around the house in dark, quiet nests waiting out the weather. Little Judith was gone again for a few days, but showed up this morning. Jetta, the kitty who showed up again on Christmas Day after being gone for over a year, amazingly has pretty much stuck around since then. Perhaps she is finally getting too old to be traipsing back over to the old house! So glad to have her cheery and chipper little "rah-ROW!" greeting me on the back porch!! So sweet!
Hope you are having a good week....and getting ready for an awesome weekend. Thank you for visiting and for your wonderful comments!!!
