When Cats Critique Christmas Cards

I was just minding my own business, setting up to take a picture of card to show you, and my cat Gizmo decided to be a smartypants (or smartytail, or whatever). She normally hates pictures, and turns away from them...but no matter how close I'd put the camera to her, she would NOT move out of my way! So, you get to see what an adorable, furry, twerp she can be. I could swear she's saying in this picture, "You call this a card?!? Really??"

Actually, this was a tag that demonstrators got to make several months ago at a Stampin' Up! event, before the 2015 Holiday Catalog even came out. It features the Home for Christmas Suite of products. I don't usually have much use for tags, so I just adhered the whole thing to a card front I stamped with the Hardwood background stamp (available in wood-mount or clear-mount). Here's a shot of just the card--it's not super great quality because I had to put it up higher on a kitty-free shelf, and snap it quick, before kitty got beligerent. Again.

Stampin' Supplies: Cozy Christmas stamp set, Hardwood background stamp, Pear Pizzazz card stock & ink, Very Vanilla card stock, Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper, Home for Christmas Designer Buttons, Very Vanilla 1-1/4" Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, Old Olive Baker's Twine, Handheld Stapler.

DISCLAIMER: I can't guarantee you'll get a kitty showing up if you make this card, but your chances do appear to increase if you make the card, and THEN try to take a picture of it!
