Pets at Christmas (in July)

Hi guys,

So here is my second Christmas card, for those themes I could not fit the first one into, and also because I was playing with some pictures on and came up with the main image for this card. The image is two separate pictures, one of my kitty a couple of Christmases ago, and another of the late Stimpy mouse in a Christmas tree. I blended the pictures into the Christmas baubles:

 I then used this picture to make the card below, simply by recycling a sentiment from an old Christmas card, and adding some glitter ribbon.
This card was made for the following challenge themes:
Anything Goes @ crafty catz and catch the bug
All that glitters @ winter wonderland
Include a sentiment @ crafty hazelnut
#142 Sentiment @ CCM
#184 All the glitters @ OLLCB
M for Magical @ abcchristmas
135 Animals @ aud sentiments
#89 Get ahead for Christmas @ simply create too
#14 Quirky Christmas in July @ quirky crafts
#37 Christmas in July @ live & love crafts
Christmas in July @ crafty calender

Thank you for looking, and all comments are appreciated.
