Max and Milo's Christmas Card..............

I recently did a swap with a blog friend, she desperately wanted some images from one of the cards I made, so I stamped her some, and in return she sent me a Loralie christmas panel, these cats are BIG, but I thought it would make a super card for Max and Milo, so here it is, I kept it simple so that the image popped. Stuck the fabric onto white card and then cut around it. The letters are DCWV chipboard, papers are making memories. The card measures 8 1/2" x 6" to give you an idea of size


Jet lag is an odd thing, I slept like a log for about 11 hours last night, woke up feeling bright and full of energy, then suddenly - POW - it's like being hit with a sledgehammer! I always take longer than most people to adjust, last time it took me about a week to get back into a real UK time zone, so I should be just about normal again by Christmas day - well, what passes for normal anyway. In the meantime, in energetic mode, I braved the crowds in the town centre, it was lovely, they had a German Christmas market there, in the town square, selling mulled wine and gorgeous little decorations, with a live oompah band playing festive music to add to the jolliness of it all. With a sprinkling of snow on the ground, it really did feel like Christmas

Oh how precious! They'll love it, and BIG cat is so cute. I hope you don't take too much time to adjust the jet lag. I remeber flying to Hawaii from the east coast. It kept getting earlier! And by the time we got there is was earlier than when we left! That was strange. The shopping sounds wonderful! Merry Merry

So funny En. I was just thinking of you this morning because I bought some of the fabric to make cards like this and haven't done a one. Even have Christmas cats (although not this adorable one) So I started looking for a glue stick and of course I couldn't find it. Now I'd REALLY like to find that stick! xxD

Wow!! What a surprise to see this fabulous card when I got your post! It's wonderful, En! As always, you motivate me....I had better start using that blasted fabric as Christmas is only a few days away!! I'm so happy you were able to use it and especially for those darling grandsons! I've managed to color a couple of the images and they are just too fun!
All the best for a lovely holiday and a terrific New Year! Please know you brighten the lives of tons of folks and are quite the inspiration. And very funny!
All the best, and thanks again!
