Cat up a tree!

I think I must be's already Thursday, and this is my first Christmas card of the week! lol The cute image is from the 'Holly Jolly' set by Penny Black, and the papers are from the 'Eskimo Kisses' pad by BasicGrey. I distressed all of the edges, and added some faux stitching to the papers using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The baubles have been 'Stickled', and I replaced the star on top of the tree with a star shaped brad from Tescos. The small green brads are by Dovecraft, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.
