Kitty Kiss

Good Morning Everyone, 
I thought I would make a start on my cards for next Christmas while I was still feeling festive, also because I ran out of time this year and ended up sending very few myself!
So this is 'Kitty Kiss' from Di's Digi Designs.
I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition- Christmas Wishes. The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Di's Digi Designs Challenge - Anything Christmas
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your encouragement and support throughout 2015.
