Christmas Mug Shot Card

I am joining in on the fun at the Cat Lover's Hop again.  I recently got this stamp from Technique Junkies.  It cracks me up and I smile each time I see it.  The cat looks just like my cat Tiger!  All in all my cats are good around the Christmas trees in our house.  The big tree in the den is their favorite place to sleep once I get it decorated.  I put a quilt around the base of the tree and they like to curl up on it.  They always look so pretty under the tree with the Christmas lights on at night.  Did you notice the snow on the trees?  I bought a snow marker at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and this is the first time I have used it.  It is prettier in person than in the photo.  You apply the marker rather thickly to the paper and let it dry.  Then you carefully use your heat gun and it puffs up and looks like snow.  It was fun to use (see I am not hard to make happy....wink.)  My mug shot kitty will be linking up at:

LOL!! This is to cute. Exactly the reason we stopped putting up a tree years ago. That and we had a wire chewer. Wasn't worth the risk.

Haha...this image is hilariously fun! Of course, anyone with a cat can relate to it completely!

Heidi Weaver said...

Oh my goodness! What cat lover wouldn't love that image? I love the way you left the cat uncoloured except for the sign which he is holding. It really pulls attention to him. I can't help but keep going back to chuckle at that cat. Great idea! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

That stamp is HILARIOUS! Fortunately, my kitties are good around the tree, too. Great job with the Snow Writer. I have a tendency to burn mine...OOPS! dlmundinger(at)yahoo(dot)com USA

After I picked myself off the floor from laughing I had to see who makes that awesome cat stamp. This would make such a great Christmas card to send to all my cat loving friends and family.

Such a fun card! We've never had a cat knock over a tree (yet..!) but one in particular that always tries to climb it! Thank you for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - Charlotte/Lady Joyful, DT

I liked having National Cat Day (Oct.29) as the extra day for commenting after the link up closed. So I think we will do it that same way next year: Oct. 23-28, 2018. It won't fall neatly into a week like it did this year...more like a Tues thru Sunday, but we will finish up with the bonus post on Mon, Oct. 29th. Thank you for offering to contact her to be a sponsor!!

Thank you so much for joining in the #CatLoversHop2017!
