Just Cute Bears and Friends

Good morning.  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  Today we have a new challenge for you over at Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge, and the challenge is...Anything But A Card.

I made a tissue box cover using Mavis Wearing Holly by Stamping Bella.  Is this not just the cutest kitty you've ever seen?  I'm usually more of a dog lover, but when I saw this image, I just had to have it!  There are more adorable Mavis images and you can check them out over at Stamping Bella.  I got the pattern for the tissue box cover from Diane Zechman at Paper Cookies.  If you want to see lots of other beautiful projects, be sure to check out her blog.

I colored my image with copics and prismacolor pencils and added some Glamour Dust and stickles for some holiday sparkle.  I also added some Glossy Accents to her little nose.  I used the snowflake embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Winter Wonderland set and added the red scallops using my Martha Stewart doily lace punch.  I had a Martha Stewart punch that I used for my leaves and then added some pearls for the berries (on the lid).

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please be sure to stop by the Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge so you can check out all the beautiful projects by the talented DT!  This will be our last challenge for 2010 and it will remain open until January 1, 2011.  I hope you can find some time to join us.
