And the Cat came back ... with a Christmas card

I'm back! I'm sorry I've been gone so long -- this past semester was rough, and in the break between semesters, I've been trying to catch up on everything else. But I have completed a couple of cards, and have several others that are nearly done.

I'm pretty pleased with this card, which features Tilda with Wedding Gifts. The stamp is so versatile -- obviously I use her a lot for my Christmas cards. The design is based on a card I saw in an old magazine. I used plain card stock -- no dp this time -- and like the clean look of it. So I may try this design out again.

Tilda has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and some Sakura gel pens. The "noel" down the side comes from the American Crafts Thickers, which are by far my favorite alphabet stickers.

I hope to enter the card in some challenges, but that will probably have to wait until after work.Thanks for stopping by!
