Merry Monday #155 - Maisie's Christmas

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  I am Hostess this week and I am wanting you to add a Dog or Cat to your Christmas card.  You may add more than one animal or both, hope you enjoy my challenge.  Do check out the other design teams cards for some fantastic inspiration. I used markers and an Aqua Painter to colour my cat and present.  I then used a stencil to add the darker dots on the present.  I embossed the White background and added a strip of DSP. I went over the ribbon on the present with my Wink of Stella  Pen.  The die cut word Merry came from Karren one of our DT Members which I coloured with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Ink. I finished off with some Bakers Twine.

Stamps: Simon Says Stamps - Happy Meowday, Holiday Hello's
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Patterns Stack DSP
Ink: Stazon Black, Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Ink
Markers: Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate
Finishing Touches: Black and White Bakers Twine, Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen
