For a Loved One!

Hey everyone - hope you had a lovely weekend! I'm popping in with a quick card for the current Christmas Kickstart challenge. For challenge 55 we're to make a Christmas card for a loved one. I chose to make a card for my kitty loving brother and sister-in-law.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white; Paper Studio A2 card;
Pink & Main Jolly; Penny Black Holiday Trimmings
Stamps - Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout;
Hero Arts I Love My Cat & 
Create Your Own Snowman (retired)
Lawn Fawn Season's Tweetings (Stamptember 2020)
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired);
A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Set
Other - SSS sentiment strips; foam tape; Copics

I'm finally getting a chance to play with a new Concord & 9th turnabout stamp I received earlier this month. Won't show my first attempt from earlier today - I'd cut my paper slightly too big & my turnabout went wonky!! Oh well, I saved it in case I can use bits and pieces... I cut a strip to add to a piece of Penny Black paper I'd cut with a pierced rectangle. Adhered to an A2 card. Added a plaid rectangle & the kitty. I'd stamped an extra while making my final Twofer Challenge card back in August. I used a Simon sentiment strip for the Merry Christmas and then some mini sentiments from a Lawn Fawn Stamptember set from last year. Done!

I also add my card to Darnell's October NBUS Challenge since my turnabout is new. Thanks to all hosts for fun challenges and to you for stopping! Happy crafting!!

This is so sweet and cheerful card with all the colors and the images. I'm a cat lover too, but unfortunately I don't have one...

Love the vibrancy of your background, such great papers and stamping. I love turnabout stamps but they can be really frustrating especially if you are like me and want everything to be perfect! Your brother will love this one xx
