Christmas Kitties

Hello Fellow Bloggers and Visitors, it's once again been a wee while since I was last here, so I hope all is well with you all, but sending kind thoughts to those who aren't.

Just where does the time go? I was doing quite nicely with Christmas preparations, but now held up by not having make the insides of my cards at the time of making them, and it seems to be taking me ages to do them.  Note to self, make the insides at the same time.  But I won't stress, I found some shop bought ones in my box of tricks if I run out of time.

I was very disappointed in the Christmas Market in Edinburgh earlier in the week, every other stall seemed to have the same items and what there was, I though was quite tatty.  The food stalls smelt wonderful though.  So that was a pity as I wanted to get a couple of gifts for friends, but I've found something here in Inverness.

I hope you are all coping with the run up to Christmas, it's a crazy time and why that should be I don't know, after all it comes around every year, and holds no surprises.

Thanks to everyone who visited and commented on my previous card, I do appreciated all your comments. Unfortunately, I've been hampered by this PC in getting around to visit and comment on your blogs, so my apologies for missing some folk out.  The machine keeps freezing and takes so long to bring up the pages that I'm loosing the will to live.  I've been looking at new laptops and I will have to give in and get one soon.

Anyway, here is my card for today;
This is one I was asked to make, and I've used  a Cupcake CD, Magical Christmas Moments
Core'dination Card in Green
Diesire Holly Die
The Ribbon Girl Seam Ribbon
Xcut Holly Border Punch
Pearls and Dazzler from my box
Computer generated Sentiment cut with SB Petite Labels
Star Dust

The lady it is for adores cats, so I feel she will like this.

That's all from me tonight, off now to decorated a gift bag, look after yourselves,

Hi Kate
Nice to see you back. This work mularky doesn't half interfere with enjoyment eh?
Loving the puddy tats. Sure that Moira will too.
Refuse to stress over Christmas . There's plenty else to get stressed over in life without that as well. Que sera, Sera as Doris so wisely said.
Best wishes.

I will try again to comment my iPad doesn't seem to like me commenting it keeps jumping letters. Love your card those kittens are so cute. Sorry your trip to the Christmas Market wasn't that great, you sometimes find that as the years go on more and more tat is brought on to the stalls.
At least you got a bit of a break, take care Hazel xxx

My great niece would love your gorgeous card Kate.. She is absolutely nuts about cats. Their last cat (of four rescue cats) died in the summer. For her birthday in September she got another rescue kitten - or rather two rescue kittens! I never make the insert at the same time either but when it comes to Christmas cards I cheat by making one of each card size on my computer and then just print out as many as i need. Job done. Hugs Christine xx
