It Fainted - Honest!!

                                   Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

My post today features Wasn't Me one of the very cute new Stamps in the Joys of the Season release. 

I have to be honest, I had an extremely hard time getting through colouring and assembling this card because I was giggling to myself (and sometimes out loud) the whole time. 

I had a cat named Smokey who decided launching himself from the top of my desk, across the room and into my artificial Christmas tree was a cool thing to do. There is still a permanent "hole" in the tree today. He would also steal all the balls off of it and we found most of them when we moved - he hid them under a dresser in our bedroom. In his later years, laying under the tree was his favourite place to be. I love when a stamp can bring back so many good memories! 


After colouring my image, I cut it out with a Spellbinders die and doodled some paw prints  around the edge. I printed my sentiment from my computer and cut it out with a fishtail banner die. I created my own background paper using a paw print stamp - I think there would be evidence around the tree even though our friends here tried to hide it! 
I finished off my card with a Christmas tree brad, some gumdrops and red checkered ribbon. The finished card size is 5x5.
