Mo's Glitz and Glimmer Challenge

Hello! I just love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil. As the owner of (or servant to, depending on who you ask) three cats I can so relate to this picture. The cats and I are at constant battle over the tree. The cat's quest is to climb it, undecorate it, run off with the tree skirt and generally make me crazy. It is getting a little better since we have wrapped some gifts and placed them under the tree. When I saw this image, I also knew it wold make a great card for some of my cat loving friends with the same problem. I am entering this card in Mo's Glitz and Glimmer challenge this week.  It's a little hard to see in the photo, but in addition to coloring everything with Copics, I used Spica markers on the ornaments and star and added a glittery border to the tree skirt. My glittery paper is from Hobby Lobby, and the ribbon is too and the buttons are from my stash.

Speaking  of tree skirts, every time I see one or hear those words together I think of the funniest episode of Designing Women. That episode was just about one of my top episodes of any show on TV. It is nearing Christmas and all the women are going to a Christmas party. Their friend Bernice came downstairs to join them and she was wearing a tree skirt as her party dress. throughout the rest of that episode she was still wearing a tree skirt in place of a real skirt. That still makes me laugh, and almost just as hard, all these years later. Thanks for dropping by!

Too cute!! You made me laugh out loud because my cats do the SAME thing to our tree. I think they have meeting in early-October to discuss their stategy because they always seem to work as a team on the "ornament assault". It's the only time they get along! :)

I love your adorable card! All of the sparkle looks great and your image is colored beautifully. Love that pretty bow, too!

I like this, the coloring is wonderful! It is a bit difficult to photograph the glitz and glimmer but I can tell its there!
