HO! HO! -- NO! - OSAAT #226

Good morning and happy Sunday!  Ooops!  I'm just a little bit late getting my post up for this fortnight's One Stitch at a Time challenge. I was so busy yesterday afternoon and evening finally getting my Christmas decorations up.  I only have a small tree (I'll share with you later) and it was hard to decide what to put on it and where it would go. I decided that I need a larger tree and hope that the boys will leave it alone. They already decided that they wanted to play with Baby Jesus from the Nativity.

You know I'm a cat person and I love Grumpy Cat. I was able to incorporate one of his sayings into my card. Our theme is Anything Goes with Glitter!

  6. Oh, that's a cute image! Your Liquid Pearls look great! Good luck with your tree. Our Marvin always left ours along, but we had a heck of a time with the neighbor cat. Of course, he was welcome in the house, but he made a beeline for the tree every time!
