Christmas Peace

I purchase the limited edition snow globe image by Karen Lockhart (from Ellen Hutson's store) every year.  There is something so sweet and wonderful about these images.  The one for 2009 is darling!

I'm not necessarily a cat person and we don't have a pet.  My son has allergies, so we've always refrained.  However, our neighbor has a sweet little cat that has decided we're all part of his family too.  At first, we didn't know his name and just called him "orange kitty".  Later, we talked to his family and learned his name is Paprika and that he's a rescue pet.  He's such a tentative little guy - so it's amazing he's taken a shine to us at all.

But he loves us and we adore him.  Isn't he sweet?  He sits on my front porch sometimes and watches me work.

So, of course, I had to create an orange kitty in this snow globe!  He's Paprika!

Christmas Peace:

To get perfect placement of the circle in the middle of my patterned paper, I created an "X" by drawing lines from corner to corner. This centered the nestabilities circle die perfectly.  But, other than that, it's a simple design... all to feature a really fun image.
Thanks for stopping by today,
