Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme is Carols and Songs so we would like to see something cute and Christmassy along those lines.

Now I must admit this wasn't my intended card for the challenge, but time has been so short with Christmas preparations, meals out etc., I didn't have time to finish it, but luckily I had this card in my drafts waiting to be used.

When I saw these Gerda Steiner Carol Kittens, I just loved the expressions on their faces so had to buy them from Dies to Die For when they became available.  I've coloured them with copics, fussy cut them out and used a wall embossing folder for the background and a Sizzix street lamp die.  I had a little holly stamp so used that on the wreath and added glossy accents to the bow.  The paper for the pavement is from my scraps folder and the sentiment is embossed onto the wall and comes with the kitten stamp set. I've also added glitter to the kittens' hats.

The sponsor for the challenge this month is:

with a lovely prize for the winner

I would like to enter these challenges:
