Goliath's Christmas Card for Daddy (again, for NEXT year)

Well, I totally dropped the ball again.  After a dismal crafting showing in December, I started off 2018 with a bang with 4 posts in a row and now here it is the 9th, with nothing in between.  In my defense, Ou BFF's spend the holidays away so this Saturday was our "Christmas Dinner".  So Thursday was spent grocery shopping, Friday was spent cooking, and all day Saturday was spent "de-catting" the house because Lisa is allergic.  Sunday I spent binge watching "Scandal" and recovering while trying to dodge a cold (so far so good) and yesterday Goliath got on my case because I'd done a Christmas card for Jezebel to give Daddy next year, but none for him.

Okay then!  This image was a no brainer.  The quirky stamps from Bloobel are some of my faves and Christmas Present Cat had "Goliath" written all over it.

Here's a closeup of Christmas Present Cat.  He's colored with Copics in appropriate "Goliath " colors ( E41-47) and I've colored the bird as the California Jay that used to swoop down for Jezebel's food this summer while she camps in the backyard.  Unfortunately, Goliath usually goes for the smaller more tender species, but one can always hope.  Goliath is thrilled so now I guess I'll go put his away with Jezzie's card for Daddy for next year and hope I can find them when the time comes.

I'm entering this in the SUYP #26 January Furrything Goes/Meuw Year Challenge, the DL.Art January Linky Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #73 AG, the Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas theme, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies #10 Jan AG/w critter (4/5), Crafty Animals #10 AG/ animal, ...

  2. Awesome! I love it when the card has meaning to the recipient, and this one fits the bill. Love the hilarious image!

    The background paper - I still have some scraps from that same pad. It sure was beautiful. Took me years to cut into it! It looks great.


  3. Such fun and absolutely wonderful, fab colouring and design (as always).

  6. The plaid paper and the stitched ribbon give this card a cozy feel! Love the way you used the beads for the sentiment.
