Christmas Kitties

Happy Friday!
I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving yesterday!  It was business as usual here in Canada since our Thanksgiving was in October...but we will have a few people over on Saturday to do a nice turkey dinner :) 

So today we have an adorable new release from Sami Stamps!  I know...I say that every time.  But they just are!  Always adorable!  So today's release is titled Christmas Paws, which of course stole my heart right away :)
My first card shows the image Curious Presents.  I sort of struggled with the coloring on this one at first...the papers I was using just weren't working for me...but I had already cut them out and didn't want to start over...but I got so frustrated with it that I threw it to the side and gave in to starting over.  And I'm so glad I did because the second round turned out much better!  I printed off and die cut out my image and then paper pieced all the presents and some of the kitties so that the dimension was right on them.

The kitties are colored to sort of match the colors of my kitties, though I only have 3 so I colored the last one in the colors of the next kitty I want to get (which will be never because 3 drive me crazy enough!  lol...)

I pulled out some Christmas ribbon I bought last year (and never opened) and wrapped it around the top with a bow.  The little Christmas light string was actually a border around one of the papers I used, so I trimmed the lights out and stuck them under the ribbon.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I went a little bit different of a route with my next image.
When I saw this sweet Ornament Kitty image, I couldn't get the idea of putting it on a shaker ornament out of my head!  He just looked like he needed to be looking out a window at something.  So I die cut out a frame and put a bunch of little kitty buttons and glitter on the inside, along with a really old picture of our little princess-Cloud and closed it all up with foam tape.

I colored up my image and stuck it down so the little kitty was looking at Cloud.  Then glittered up some clear snowflakes, added a ribbon, and stuck on some little jingle bells!  I'll have to reopen the ornament to swap out the picture when I get some printed off from this year.  But for now, I like what's in there :)

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
