Have a furry Christmas

City Crafter Challenge Blog is celebrating its 7th birthday by doing CASE challenges throughout the month of April. I haven't played along as much I'd like to, but I'm going to make an effort to enter more often as I love their challenge themes.
This week it's about CASEing Ros' card, I was inspired by her cat image and musical theme, but I made a Christmas card instead of a birthday one, I hope that's OK.

I used an image and sentiment kindly sent to me by Nonni of Nonni's Handmade Cards, I masked the image and used a musical notes stamp and also added a die cut lamp post covered with silver EP.

This card is for:
City Crafter Challenge - #357 CASE the Designer Card
Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas
ABC Christmas Challenge - "I" for Informal
Show us Your Pussies-Cat Only Challenge - Furrything Goes

This goofy trio of critters always makes me smile when I see it. I ran across this image when I was looking for a humorous image for our Christmas Card Club challenge, but then I found one I'd previously colored. So cute the way you've used the music score & lamp post to embellish this chorus, and I love their outfits! Hope you had a Happy Easter. (yes, Mr. is good to craft shop. He finds things & I have to go see. He's also been good to go to stamp shows, but he has a tendency to go too fast. I take a long time, looking at everything, he says! I do museums the same way!) Hugs

This is so darn cute! Those animals are quirky and fun.
My grandaughter would love this card as she loves all animals and always forgoes birthday presents and asks guest to contribute to an animal rescue project of some sort.
it was for birds for a couple of years, then sea creatures and now for the last couple of years it is wildlife rehab and rescue. I make her a lot of animal cards!
