Fat Cat with attitude

While snooping around one of my fave blogs the other night, I noticed a few cards using this "Fat Cat Fred" character.  Being nosey, I immediately googled him, only to turn up a whole sheet of free digis!  Score!  There's a whole bunch of images and I had to make a card right away using this fun guy.  Go here to get your own.



On a side note - anyone got any tips for colouring areas with lots of fiddly bits, like around the holly?  Looking at it now, I didn't do such a fab job...

Sketch - Sweet Sunday
Fave die cut - ABC Christmas Challenge (Oh so many faves, I really like this simple bracket tab today though!)
Anything Goes - Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Woodland scene

Eeek, isn't this stamp from Crafter's Companion the cutest?  It could almost be a picture of my backyard except the local racoons aren't that cute when they're rampaging through your garbage! 
Anyhoo, must keep this brief as I have to start writing Christmas cards, I haven't sent any yet, yikes!  Don't know where my head is this year...

Vintage-ish...

If you've been following my blog for awhile, you may have noted that vintage and I are not the best of friends.  However, it's good to play outside the box every once in a while so I thought I'd play along with the Cat's Pajamas 'vintage' challenge and this is the result.  Not really vintage but hopefully close enough!  Lots of inking helped and some lovely CTMH blue and brown wintery paper - what do you think?


Now I'm off to go play at Splitcoast and see if I can remember my password - it's been awhile!

Challenges:
Vintage - Cat's Pajamas
Sketch - One Crazy Stamper (flipped sideways)
No red or green Christmas - Celebrate the Occasion
Snowmen or Ladies - Crafty Sentiments (or snow bunnies?)
So this is Christmas - Deep Ocean
Let It Snow - Oldie but a Goodie (I've had this paper pack since last year)
Anything Goes - Papertake Weekly 
Holiday Spirit - Ribbon Carousel
Snow/winter - Shopping Our Stash
