I have used Penny Black "Ski Patrol" this is the first time I have used this and am now in love with it! The papers are from My Minds Eye, I know, I know I have used it to death this Christmas! (don't panic I have nearly used it all now!) The tree die cut is also from MME and the greeting is by Making Memories.

I have used "Laurel Leaves" paper from the Wassail collection and coordinating green Bazzill. The image is by Penny Black & is called "Christmas Spirit" I have coloured it using my watercolour pencils. I have added red stickles for the berries for a bit of dimension and sparkle! The embossed panel at the back is made using the Cuttlebug ornament embossing folder. Finally the greeting is a Pebbles Inc rub on.

Now Olive........ you know the cat that joined in the FIND ARTHUR campaign and looked for him nearly every minute of the day well...........she HATES him! I think she had decided that she was enjoying life on her own and judging by her reaction I wouldn't be surprised if it was her that locked him in the shed! LOL So hopefully in a week or two they will be back to normal! I thought you would like this final installment on O & A but better turn this blog back into my crafting factory not a cat one! So hopefully I can post a new creation later!

Thanks again for all your lovely messages....Arthur is doing very well after winning the "West Sussex Cat Hide & Seek Championship!!!".....VERY clingy and a little sneezy so I will have to see what the vet thinks about that! Olive on the other hand is very upset he is home!!!!!!! She is not talking to him and hiding behind the sofa! In fact I would go as far as to say it may well have been her that locked him in somewhere!!!!!LOL I think she has enjoyed having ALL the attention and is a little fed up that it will be shared again.......Naughty Olive!

I have used some more of the "My Minds Eye" papers and the snowman and tall tree are from the co-ordinating die cut sheet. The triangle trees are just embossed green triangles & the flourish is QK. To finish off I have added some glitter glue to the snow!
Before I go i wanted to show you this picture of little Kyle, as you all know it was his birthday last week and his birthday treat was to have a racing car party with two other friends who were turning 4 that week. Him and his little friends went round the track in the little carts and loved every second of it. He wore his racing driver outfit and spent just as much time waving at his Mum and Dad than driving the go-cart (or racing car as Kyle would call it!) This picture was taken after he received his "Safe Driver" certificate and "Best Driver" Trophy. Do you think he was pleased with himself? Couldn't you just eat him..........

The shock horror is because you are witnessing my 1st ever Magnolia creation! This image was sent to me in a pif (thanks again lisa x). I vowed NEVER to go down the Magnolia road..........words like Freaky faces, moomin heads and monster trolls may have even passed my lips concerning them........ (please don't hit me or banish me from blog land!) but actually I am starting to warm to them. Don't get me wrong I adore the creations that some of my fellow bloggers create but its always hard to turn a Penny Black girl!!!! So all that said, my confession over with....... I actually really enjoyed making this although the colouring leaves a lot to be desired....I can only colour animals!!!! LOL
I have used my "My minds eye" papers and an assortment of Doodlebug and Prima blooms. The frill is Doodlebug and the greeting is by Making Memories.
Finally there is still no news on Arthur, I'm not going to put this at the bottom any more as I find it upsetting and I am trying to make my cards and blog as an escape from the real world! You will all be one of the first to know if I have any further news on him. xxx

I have coloured it in using my water colour pencils and have added some glitter touches to the wrapping paper and the berries! I have used Doodlebug mini rub ons to add "Gramps" to the tag and have punched out holly for the corners. So a super simple one but I am really pleased with the result.
Still nothing to report xxx

As you can see Kyle is 4 tomorrow, I have used foam "Thickers" for his name and American Craft rub ons for the "4" and Doodlebug rub ons for the "today". The rest of the products are all Doodlebug. Apart from the arrow which was cut using a QK Revolution die.
The card holds an in joke for Kyle & I .......I often play silly games with Kyle and he loves Aunties "rude" words.....these really aren't all that rude but he loves it if we are being naughty! One of the little songs I sing him is one that we used to sing at school, it goes "Ma's out, Pa's out, lets talk rude.......Pee po belly bum drawers!" So when I saw this little cat in his boxers (they could actually be shorts but they look like boxers to me!) I thought perfect so I have added the "Rude" words and added a little arrow to his drawers.......
I hope he likes it, he will be more interested in his presents really......but who wouldn't be at 4!
I will keep you all updated with any news on little Arthur, we are all truly lost without him.

I have then used white sugar coated Doodlebug card for the bottom panel and secured the brown strip with cupcake sugarcoated brads. I then drew a pink glitter line all around the card (you can't really see this in the pic!) Finally I added a white greeting rub on and a glitter swirl!

I have used the holly flock paper and red card for the circles and the holly swirl is one of the new glitter stickers.....yum yum! The snowman is from one of the older Christmas sticker sheets and the dotty Christmas circle is a new stamp called "Christmas Cheer" from lil Stamps. I finished off with some red ribbon and some glaze pen dots.
I really have my Christmas head on at the moment so look out for some new cards using the new Christmas Doodlebug boutique trims, glitter strips and boutique brads over the next few days.
