 Hello crafty friends!  I'm back to share my DT card creations for ABC Christmas Challenge, where C is for CATS, and D is for DOGS.  I made one for each animal. 

C is for CATS

D is for DOGS

I made it easy for myself this month by using some print and cut Silhouette files from Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings.  I own quite a few images from this artist, as I think they are so adorable!  For the backgrounds of my cards, I used 2 amazing stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.  The one I used on the canine card is called Paws, and the ornament behind the festive feline is the 5" ornament from the Marvelous Masks Ornaments set.  The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn, with "have yourself a merry little Christmas" coming from the Merry Messages set, and "meowy Christmas" is a combination of words from Meow You Doin'? and Christmas Dreams.  I was so excited that I was able to match up the "meow" so perfectly with the "y" from merry!  It's the little things sometimes, isn't it? 😉  Both of the critters are popped up on Dollar Tree foam tape for dimension.  The inks I used were Medium Spruce and Dark Spruce from Gina K for the paw prints, with a little bit of Weathered Wood oxide ink for a highlight.  The red ink is Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  The silver is Delicata's Silvery Shimmer ink, and the meowy Christmas was stamped in VersaFine Clair Nocturne.

I am happy with how cute both of these cards turned out, and they will be perfect to give to any dog or cat lover for Christmas!

I appreciate you stopping by today!  Please pop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created for this month's letters, and to join in as well.  There is always a chance to win a great little prize!
