Crazy Christmas Cat!

Did you know that there are only 255 days left to Christmas!! We'd better get a wiggle on ;-) Seriously though, if you join in with a few Christmas challenges throughout the year you will avoid the last minute panic.

This week on the ABC Christmas Challenge it's our lovely boss, Samantha's, turn to host and the theme is 

'H' for HATS

I made this card using the adorable Crazy Cats Stamp and Die set 

I have 7 cats and know that the pom pom on Santa's hat wouldn't last 2 minutes LOL. 

For the background I inked the craft mat with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, spritzed with water and then smooched a piece of watercolour paper around in the puddle. I then splattered with Pumice Stone Spray Stain

Thanks for looking!
