on the tenth day of Christmas...

my true love gave to me 10 feline fashionistas festively festooned... well maybe just in my version of Alpha Stamps 12 Days of Christmas...


I was graciously asked by Miz Bella to be a guest designer for the tenth day of Christmas in this fabulous blog event and I chose to do something with dressed kittys instead of those boring old traditional leaping lords. So I used a wonderful new accordion book and cut it apart to make five wall "hangers" and a sweet little hanging atc...


It was super easy to do, just a bunch of cutting and glueing for the most part, the hardest part was trying to figure out how to add a dimensional flocked tree to one of my flat panels...


Here's what I finally did after a bit of pondering...
first I cut the base off of the tree...


then I used a pair of sharp scissors and cut all of the bristles from one side of the tree, leaving the top half inch of the tree intact...


then I took out my trusty hot glue gun and glued that tree right where I wanted it...


After getting the tree down, everything else kinda just flew together and when I was finished I had five panels ready for hanging...




I was lucky to find five sweet hangers in my stash to hang up my kittys with... that's why I am so dedicated to hoarding, err um I mean collecting art supplies...


if you'd like to add any of the lovely supplies I used from Alpha Stamps to your art supply collection you can find a complete list with links here.

Bless your heart...you're an animal lover like myself :) I have to tell you how much I enjoyed your project for the Alpha Stamps 12 Days of Christmas. Love the kitty cats all dressed up in their finery. I noticed that they're even getting along with those of the canine persuasion...must be the magic in the air!
