Kitty Sleigh Ride and Naughty Birdies

Hi there guys,

Well after a wet and miserable start to the day it really brightened up and I got some bits done sown on the allotment. Another bed has been prepared and the first 47 onion sets planted. I now need to work out where I am going to put the rest of them as this is not even a quarter of what I have got!!

I decided it was time to make a Christmas card and play along with some Christmas challenges. So this is what I have created:

The kitty was cut from an old Christmas card, and the bauble was stamped onto the reverse of the packaging for a free gift. The stamps were also free gifts with magazines, stamped with Boofle green ink. To make the clouds on the bauble I die-cut a small scalleped circle (X-cut nesting dies) and Whispers ink. I wet a sponge and used this to apply the ink around the top edge of the scalloped circle. The effect I was aiming for was the reindeer flying off leaving the kitty in the sleigh as a present.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
winter wonderland Christmas baubles
catch the bug Recycle - Christmas cards
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas 276 Green
scrapbook stamp society #88 Anything Goes
abc christmas  G for Green/Gold
alphabet challenge C for Cats
jingle belles rock Peace on EARTHday (recycle)
Christmas @ Sweet Stampin' Cute Christmas
quirky crafts Quirky raining cats and dogs

I would also like to show you my naughty birdies stealing the rabbits greens instead of going and eating their own!

And here is an update on the height chart too - @66hrs:

Thank you for looking,
Hugz Tinz
