"Kitten in a Santa Hat"

Good Morning Ladies, well my day has started well, I went to start my desktop computer and it keeps locking up on me so Im not a very happy bunny, hubby carnt look at it till tonight as its his volunteering weekend and hes gone of to help with the signal box rebuilding at Parkend and Im struggling with my notebook, so I wont be writing much of a monologue today.
Todays card has been created with Mos "Santa Cat"and you will find it here and Ive printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it as a ginger tom, I used Nestabilitie Label 1 to cut it out, then used the same die to draw around to use as a mount, the sentiment is one I created on my computer and afterwards cut it out with one of the smaller dies and mounted it in the same way.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a base layer of beige pearlescent card and one of four papers from Nitwits Downloads this set are called "Miawow" the first paper is an all over sentiment pattern and then Ive placed a strip of checked paper down the middle and used my treelights EK border punch down it, on top of this is a third paper and this one is a dark beige base with loads of different paw marks on, on top of this is fourth paper and this has lots of hearts and circles on.
I then wrapped a piece of brown ribbon around the middle and tied a knot to the right hand side, on top of this I positioned my mounted image and the sentiment was then stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have used my glaze pens in the light bulb holes that were punch out with the border punch.
