Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Dear Santa Reminder

CC Dec 7, 2015 photo CCDec7pic_1.jpg 

We are half way through our Dear Santa challenge over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, and this is my second take on the photo.

I just love this adorable Santa image from There She Goes.  Unfortunately, the company is no longer in business so I am glad I got him while I could :) 

A quick, simple design for today's card.  Coloured him with Twinkling H2Os, added glitter on his hat and cuffs (sorry, hard to see in the photo), created the snowflake pattern on the kraft using two snowflake stamps from the same set.  

We had a bit of a scare with our new kitty this weekend.  Turns out, a plant we had in the house (anthurium) is poisonous to kitties (totally unknown to us) and he chewed a bit of leaf.  The toxicity can be mild to severe, and based on his symptoms, his was mild - phew!  He has some swelling in his throat and may have a small blister or two (side effects), but thankfully, what he ingested was minor so he can breathe, drink and eat wet food okay (dry on hold for a few days).  Things should be back to normal in a few days and we are very thankful it wasn't worse!  Never a dull moment with Paddington in the house!

Have a fabulous day, and thanks for stopping by!

Super cute card Marisa. Love the sweet image... glad you got to hang onto him. The Kraft banner looks great with the snowflakes.

Oh, no! So glad Paddington is okay! Sigh of relief. Your card is just as precious as can be! Love that little Santa, too, and your snowflake-stamped pennant is the perfect backdrop for him!

I'm crushing over your sweet Santa, Marisa; he's definitely a 'keeper'! Poor Paddington! Thank heavens he only had a nip of the plant and that all is well! Inquisitive kitty, indeed...
