Naughty Kitty Christmas

Naughty Skippyjon has knocked over my little fake tree and is chewing on the bristly branches.   Now that he has discovered how enjoyable it is to gnaw on these scratchy things, I can't keep him away from it.  He thinks getting sprayed by the water bottle is a fun game!!  Merry Christmas!!!
Hi, Friends.....

Merry Christmas to you! I love it when Christmas lands on a Sunday and we aren't traveling so we can attend worship at our little country church. We live in North Central Idaho and almost always can count on a lovely white Christmas. This year we have a fresh blanket of snow over the old snow and it is just gorgeous. Our little community is transformed into a Norman Rockwell-esque painting signed with a flourish of snowflakes by the Master Artist himself. I just love celebrating our Savior's birth together with my neighbors in this beautiful place where we are privileged to live!

The reason I am posting on my blog on Christmas Eve is because my friend Fiki over at Bad Kitty's Craftroom has an adorable digi image she drew and a fun giveaway if you link up a project with her digi. I meant to do this way earlier in the month, but things just got away from me and all of sudden I remembered!! EEEEK!! Well, it is soooooooo cute of an image that I didn't want to miss out.  I printed it and went right to work coloring with my Spectrum Noirs and Ultra-fine Sharpies.

Here's another naughty kitty.....well, not too naughty, just typical.  He has opened one of his gifts (not sure if he waited until Christmas or not, but prob not!) and now he is completely ignoring the brand-new fishy toys and is sitting inside the box!!  Hahaha.... so much the way cats are!!!

Other supplies used:
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Sticker with sentiment by Echo Park
DCWV paper
Baker's Twine

Thank you so much, Fiki, for sharing your adorable art with us and for your sweet giveaway!! 

Merry Christmas to each of you!!!  I hope on this special day when we exchange gifts and spend time with family and friends that you will remember to be thankful for the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ....and the salvation from sins that He made possible.  
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."  Luke 2:11

  4. Oh, Skippyjohn! I saw a funny pic like this, but with a dog saying, You got home just in time... the tree fainted! LOL!! See ya next year if not before - hugs!!

  5. Oh dear, Skippyjon, the water bottle isn't a fun game. I had a cat who would always look around surprised when squirted, 'Water mysteriously got on me!" He never figured it out. He never figured out the shock mat either and would stand on it and hiss.

    Love your card made with Fiki's image. Typical cat, more interested in the box and the ribbons than the toy. Mine got toys and treats yesterday and spent the day playing with an ornament they pulled off the tree.

  6. Your card is toooo cute Janis! Funny how our kitties get something in their minds and there is NO deterring them :) Have a blessed week :)

  7. Wouldn't be Christmas if the pet didn't knock over something The cat on the card looks guilty of something unknown HAPPY NEW YEAR Janis .Lis

  8. Love your photo...and your card is so cute! Merry Christmas.

  9. Eeeek!!! Janis, your card is SO cute, and your coloring is just wonderful! You are really getting the hang of those alcohol markers, wow! I had wanted to use this adorable image as well, and actually printed it out, but never got to it. Oh that Skippyjon...such a typical kitty. Funny how the tree being fake didn't deter him at all! I have many memories of our various cats climbing to the top of our tree, so that we had to place a hook in the ceiling to keep it from toppling!

  10. Oh dear - sorry your kitty is being very naughty with the mini tree !!!!! :-)
    This is a super sweet card. I snagged Fiki's adorable image too.
    Thank you for purring along to plat at SUYP Cats Challenges. :-)
