Here is a little card made for the challenge at CAS Christmas where the theme this time is Cats and or Dogs
I don't have an abundance of Christmas Cats or dog stamps, although of course they could be put into a Christmas setting, but I actually fancied a festive one. I found a Penny Black image for Twelve Drummers drumming, where a hound was bashing away at a drum kit, ears flapping madly, but I fancied a bolder image somehow. I came across a set of Avery Elle cats and dogs which I don't actually remember using before, and decided to do a little masking in order to give this little chap a Santa hat! I popped a piece of sticky tape on the stamp over the top of the dog's head before inking, so that when stamped, I would be able to draw the hat in the gap! I coloured him with Promarkers and then cut around him before popping him on dimensional pads atop the (SIZZIX) dry embossed square.
Looking at the picture now, I realise that I intended adding some Fun Flock to the hat band and pom pom, I may do that now!
I still can't add pictures to my Blog using Chrome. Goodness knows what has happened, but at least I can use an alternative browser (Edge) to get them uploaded. I don't use Edge often as my touchpad won't scroll in that browser, and the spell check is set to US instead of UK, so all sorts of wavy lines appear on correct UK spellings . If I were more techy, I suppose I could sort it all out, but I guess as long as I have a way which works, that's all that matters.
Numbers of Covid infections are dropping rapidly in the UK so maybe there is light ahead.
Stay safe everyone!Christmas 24 -Cute animals
