CAS Christmas February Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today we're starting February's CAS Christmas Challenge.  This month is hosted by the talented Susan (Cardmaker's Garret).  Susan wants us to add to our CAS Christmas cards ....
So fun!  I bought a lot of Stamping Bella stamps last year when there was a big sale. :)  This is one of them - Christmas Tug of War.  I love how the dog and cat are "sharing" the gift ... I wonder who will win the tug of war??!!

I stamped in black ink and clear heat embossed before watercolouring with Zigs.  The colours are so bright and vibrant.

This cat and dog with their parcel are just adorable Loll and so beautifully coloured, and finished with that very apt sentiment. x

Adorable card, Loll and the watercoloring is awesome.

Colleen said...

Loll, this is just too cute for words! I think the dog might win, just because he is a little plumper, but then the cat could give a big hiss and he would be gone. I think you scored great on this sale, this image is adorable!

Love your Zigs watercoloring of your adorable cat and dog playing tug of war. Who wins? That is a fun thought:-) TFS your fun Christmas card, Lolly. Love and Hugs...Nancy

What a delightful image that is colored wonderfully. Hmmmm...that kitty could probably give a swipe so fast the puppy wouldn't know what hit him. LOL Hope you have a great day!

Perfect stamp for the challenge. Adorable card and beautifully watercolored as usual.
Since the dog is just sitting there and not exerting any effort, my bet is on the dog. 😂

Mac Mable said...

Thanks for bringing a smile to my face with this adorable card Loll x. I'm betting on the cat....x.

Ros Crawford said...

Awww! This melts my heart... So beautiful Loll!

Such a fun Christmas card, Loll. Great picture coloring. As a guardian of 3 cats, I can say with full responsibility that the cat will win. Before the dog knows it, he will lie tied with a ribbon next to the Christmas tree and the cat will check the contents of the gift. If it turns out to be of little interest to him, he will release the dog from his bonds so that all the blame falls on the dog at the end :-)
