A Meowy Christmas at Sugar Creek Hollow

Oh happy Saturday! I am one week closer to a much needed vacation but so many tasks to complete before I get there. What a busy time of year. My day today will be spent shopping for those last family Christmas gifts - I really hope I can polish off those lists because I'd much rather spend tomorrow finishing my Christmas cards and enjoying a little hobby time.

Speaking of cards, today's another sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This card features the most adorable digi stamps called "Meowy Christmas" which includes the image and the sentiment. Isn't this the cutest? A perfect Christmas card for those cat lovers on your list. You can find the digi image here in the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.

Though hard to tell in this particular photo, I started out recoloring the digi image to a shade of navy blue using my photo editing software. I glittered up her wings and the edges of my image panel with stickles. Her crown and details on the watch and her body were enhanced using a glitter gel pen. The vintage papers are from Bo Bunny "Midnight Frost" collection. A few rhinstone flourishes, a bow and some silky flowerettes and we're good to go!

Be sure to stop by and see the design team's Christmas card creations at the Sugar Creek Hollow blog. It'll be the inspiration you need for those last few Christmas cards you need to complete and get in the mail!  Thanks for stopping by my blog ... Meowy Christmas to you all!
