Guest at Cute Card Thursday - A Play on Words

I am having so much fun with the challenges as this months guest at Cute Card Thursday.  And this week the challenge is to make a card with a Play on words... a sentiment with a pun type of saying in it.

Now I will admit for a while I just didn't know what I could work with... then I found one of the new Christmas images from Stampavie Laurence Collection and the name of the stamp was right there.... A Purrfect Christmas - so I made up my card and typed out a sentiment to go along with it -
I colored with my Copics and then cut out with one of the Nesties Labels Dies. All of the papers are from Kaisercraft's Christmas Carnival Collection, layered with card stock colors to match and sewed together. There is also an EK Success border with a zig zag embossing. I felt it needed some bling - so I stickled the edges of the image and my computer generated sentiment. Was fun.. and punny to make!

Have to run now.. man the weather has really taken away my computer time the past three days! Due to Tropical Storm Hermine, we have had way over 8 inches of rain here and our power keeps going off and on, even when the sun is out! Anyway, I have left the computer off for a while to save it from doing damage. And man I miss it!

Hope you will pop over to Cute Card Thursday - it is a fabulous challenge site with an amazing DT that I have had a blast playing with!

HUGS and-
