Mitten and Button at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Good morning!  It's a beautiful but chilly morning here in Greece (if you ignore all the rubbish piling up on the streets and the rioters down in Syntagma Square).  The sun is shining brightly, there's hardly any wind and it's one of those beautiful crispy feeling mornings that you only get in Autumn.  It started out at 12 degrees C, but I think it's going to be balmy 20 degrees or so later today!  

This is going to be a quick post as I am in the middle of icing a decadent chocolate cake for my special friend BB who turns 30-something young today!  Happy Birthday BB!  What a beautiful day for a birthday!

This week it's New Release week at Little Miss Muffet stamps and Barbara has some gorgeous new images for us.  Today we have some lovely wee Christmas Animal Friends to show you and tomorrow you will get to meet the mysterious new Secret Agent Popcorn.

I decided to combine the two new release images for today onto one card... Meet Button (the kitten) and Mitten (the puppy):

I kept the card pretty simple as my image ended up being so huge.  The papers are a mixture from my collection.  The ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl... I have had them in my stash for a while now.  The charm is from Telford's Direct (it's also been waiting in my stash for Christmas to get closer).  

Are they cute or what?!  I coloured Button in chocolate browns in memory of my beautiful Seal Burmese and the puppy in Golden Retriever colours in memory of our dogs.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge: U is for Unused Stash
Ruby's Rainbow #14: Cute and Cuddly
Forever Friends: Anything Goes but use an animal
Karens Doodles Challenge: Animal Antics

Here is a close up:

And here are the copics I used:

I do hope you get a chance to head over to the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog and check out the lovely creations from my teamies!

And my 'once a year cake' did not disappoint with its moist and tender chocolate cake bits topped with decadent icing and a scrummy butter/cream cheese icing in the middle. I am so spoiled!
And my special friend Arabella gave me the most beautiful bracelet and necklace, and THE most exciting new bundle of card-making gear which I'll be racing to try out.
Thank you lovely friend.

ahhhh, I just want to squeal, this is so cute! They look so good together.

What a fabulous scene, although, I am sure if it were my house, the Christmas tree would also be toppled over, the presents ripped open, and all the ornaments shattered to sharp toe piercing shards.

Your side bow and charm are gorgeous.

This is fabulous - a great project and also the source of inspiration for my own project. ;D After seeing them together I had to do the same thing! LOL I love how you used the label maker to create a sentiment. *Hugs
