A festival at Always Use Rubber

It's time for our new challenge at Always Use Rubber. For many of us, the excitement of Christmas is building up, but we recognise that not everyone celebrates it - so we'd like to see something that celebrates any festival celebrated in your country or by your faith.

I've chosen Christmas - but a very Grumpy Cat version of it!

The cat image is from Katzelkraft's "Les Chats Russes" set, masked and then overstamped with  a very old unmounted tree stamp which I heat embossed with a green holographic powder. The sentiment is from Dylusions and the little Santa hat is one of the few remaining embellishments left from a very old HOTP Christmas kit.

It was only after I started writing this post that I realised how lop sided the cat is - he's obviously been stealing the sherry trifle!

I am sharing this with:
Addicted to Stamps and More - Make your mark
Fab'n'Funky - Christmas
Country View Challenges - Christmas
Creative with stamps - Use Christmas stamps (tree and sentiment)
