Festive Friday Fun!

Hello all!
No, I havn't lost the plot and yes, I do have a Christmas card for you today!  For our end of the month Anything Goes challenge at The Outlawz Copics group, we have decided to add a twist - make a Christmas card.  Now there's no excuse for that last minute panic as December approaches!
    Just think, if you only do 1 festive card each month, you'll have at least 10 done by the time comes for you to start worrying about making them for next Christmas :)  So, check out the rest of the fab DT's work here and get your jingle bells on :)

        For my card I used a Mo's Digital Pencil digi, coloured with Copics and some freebie papers I got with a magazine in England.  I highlighted the star and Christmas baubles with some Glossy Accents but it's a bit difficult to see.   My photos seem to have taken on a blue tinge lately and I'm not sure why.......  I do have a new camera - my Canon would have cost over $300 to have it looked at and the problem may not even have been fixed for that price so I figured it would make more sense to spend a bit more and get a new one - another Canon.  I think I need to spend some time playing with the manual settings.  Maybe I just need to be somewhere with some warm sunshine tones - that sounds like a better plan :)

I would like to enter this into the challenges at - 

Thanks for popping in and have a wonderful weekend!

Cute card! And adore the sentiment! You could come down here to SW FL to visit Dawn. It's a balmy 80 degrees with lots of sunshine in the forecast.

Oh my goodness. How incredibly adorable. That image and the sentiment are purrific!!! (Sorry couldn't help myself.) I might just have to steal that saying and create my own freebie (if you let me know where it comes from I can determine if there is any copyright issue although my guess would be no since you can't copyright short phrases). Fabulous card Dawn and thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog a couple days ago.


Tracy said...

Oh just look at those shiny baubles! Love the extra detail there Dawn. Great card for your ahead of time stash. :-) Hugs!

Fantastic card. Great coloring and a wonderfully amusing image.

If we ever had a tree, I'm quite sure that our cats would recreate your scene.
