Warm furry wishes

I've made this card for my sister-in-law who dubbed herself a Crazy Cat Woman after tipping over from two cats to three, by adopting a stray. 
There are two Christmas challenges this week to include a cat (do they plan this?) so here is my effort. 
I don't have any cat stamps so I found this cheeky moggy on internet clip art. I just went back to find the link but it only links to pintrest and not the page. I'll add it later if I can find it. 
I stamped the checks with Inky Doodle stamps and then embossed the dots to highlight the cats bow. I may have to include dots on everything now. They are so cool. (Yes, using my new machine! See previous).
I added the bow and some stickles to the cats fur and the tops of the baubles.
As I'm still printing sentiments, I can make it say whatever I like. I think this suits. 
I'm linking to:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown =  Christmas Cats
Merry Monday = Use a cat or a dog on a Christmas card
Pixie's Snippets Playground = use those snippets. I've used various bits of card, the ribbon and the base is yet another failed card given a new lease of life.
So two posts in one day. I'd like to state for the record that I have also cut the grass, cleaned the loo and provided a meal for my family who could very well do it themselves but don't. Just in case anyone is wondering why I am playing around with bits of card all afternoon instead of doing anything useful...
