Those Crazy Cats!

I thought I'd share a few cards today that I've made for my cat-loving friends. This is a free pre-colored digi from CraftyMoments that I just had to have as soon as I saw it! A friend of mine has a cat who takes up a permanent home in her Christmas tree every year as soon as she decorates it. I don't know what it is about cats & trees, but they seem to love hiding in them.  I used some pieces of matching dsp from my overflowing bin and put this together with some punched lights/ornaments and twine. The sentiment was computer generated.
I'll enter this card into the Snippets Playground #103.

Here's another cat all tangled up in the Christmas lights! This is a cute stamped image I've had in my stash for quite a while, and Di just left me a comment to let me know it's "Fluffles" the cat by Stampendous! (thanks Di!)   The papers are from Fancy Pants, and the lights were punched from glittered cardstock and strung with bakers twine. I added some spica glitter pen accents to the tiny lights on the image.

Same image, same paper stack, but designed just a little bit differently. These cards have already been sent, so I hope they'll bring a smile to those folks who love cats and all their antics with Christmas decorations!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day!

Those devilish cats, they do make for a fun card. I like all the papers you used and those punched ornaments are so cute. Enjoy your day, my friend.

These are quite funny! So sweet that you thought of the cat lovers and made them something they would enjoy. That top card with the cats everywhere just makes me laugh. I can't imagine! But I don't own a cat either. Great colors and what fun cards!

Your cat-loving friends are sure to get a huge smile from these fun cards. I can just see your friend's cat perched in the tree. Love those ornaments you added to the cards.

Two great cards. They brought a smile to my face...I remember when our cat toppled the tree!!
She has now gone to kitty heaven but she was a tree climber too.

My fave is the second one as that kitty is so very naughty! And you gave me a great idea for some little die cut lights that I did not know how to use...Watch for tree lights banners in the New Year! lol
