'Tis the Season

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a fun Christmas card to add to my collection. My amazingly awesome son found this adorable stamp for me at a thrift store. It's so perfect! What kitty doesn't love watching birdies through the window???

My wood grain patterned paper background was inspired by the the June Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge with the Scenery: Into the Woods as the featured rerun set. I don't own the set but I got inspiration from the stamped wood grain background and white sentiment panel on Shay's colorful card HERE.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
M&C Boutique - Large Circle Frame die set
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
Stampendous - Kitty at Window stamp
Spectrum Noir markers
Inkylicious - Seasons Greetings x4 stamp set
Tsukineko - Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
Core'dinations cardstock
DCWV wood grain cardstock

Hope you enjoyed this sweet kitty card. Hope your week is going well. Thank you so much for your visits and comments!!!
