Meowy Christmas!

I saw a similar card in the latest issue of PaperCrafts Holiday Cards magazine and just had to make one. I needed a couple of last minute cards and this card was perfect. I thought it would be fun to use some non-traditional colors for a change of pace.

The outside of the card measures 5 x 7 inches. The photo measures 4 x 6 inches and was taken by my husband. We have two cats; Jackson is the star of this photo and weighs over 18 pounds. He is a big cat, but oh so loveable. Izzy is our other cat and weighs only 8 pounds. Izzy is convinced she is Jackson’s mother and rules our home, even though Jackson is over twice her size.

The sentiment is .75 x 3.25 inches and was printed using Word.

The bird is from the Imagine Best Friends cartridge, page 13 and cut at 1.8 inches. I love this cartridge and decided the bird would be perfect. Jackson is an indoor cat, so I am not sure what he would do if saw a bird up close, since he usually watches from our window.

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season and be sure to stop back for a fun Fab Five Friday.

This is an unconventional way to personalize, and add a bit of humor! How cute!

This is such a cute idea - and such a fun sentiment! Jackson looks a lot like our Electra.

I had the twin to your cat. Mine was Max and was also a big cat. I miss him so much! Great card idea!
