Fur Cones

I finally got round to ordering some Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley this week - a little too late for Lili's Christmas in August challenge from last week, but way too early to start making Christmas cards! Got my Hallowe'en stuff to do first! Anyway this is for Lili's Little Fairies Vintage/Shabby Chic challenge - I think it's shabby enough. All my edges are distressed, but there might be too much glitter to be truly vintagey! This is also for Just Add Ink's Challenge #178 to add snowflakes. Got lots of those!

And here it is, using my new Fur Cones stamp - aren't these cats just the cutest?!


Stamps: Fur Cones from Lili of the Valley, Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers, Little Labels both from Papertrey Ink, Snow Flurries from Stampin' Up

Papers: Bordering Blue (Retired), Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, In Colors 2012-14 DSP Stack (Retired?) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card, White Glitter paper form local craft store
