Christmas Kitty

Happy Friday :-)

I'm playing along again in Kathy's 30day-coloring challenge on instagram, where we are to color something - anything -
daily for 30 days. I don't know how well I'll be able to keep up with daily coloring, but I will surely try coloring something each day. If you'd like to play along, simply tag your coloring with #thedailymarker30day3 on instagram or you can link up on her blog (see link above).

I colored this cute kitty yesterday for day 1 of the challenge, and had time today to make a card. 

The image has been colored using copic markers on xpress it blending card. I used papers from Bo Bunny (I think) and card stock from SU and Recollection 110lb for the card base. 
The cute little sentiment is part of the set "Holiday Snippets", which is a fun set of many little sentiments like this one and some snowflakes too. 

Here is what the inside looks like (sorry for the bad photo, for some reason my camera doesn't take good pictures of the insides of cards.). The sentiment is part of a new Christmas sentiment set from Penny Black. I have it available in my Etsy *stamp* shop along with the cute critter stamp set I used. 

Products used:
(all the above are available in my Stamp Shop)
Jingle Bells Die (Whimsy Stamps)
SU, recollections CS, Bo Bunny designer papers
glitter, ribbon, copics for coloring

The card is listed for sale in my Etsy *card* shop
