Challenge #2 - FESTIVE FELINES sponsored by Ike’s Art

Welcome to Crazy for Cats Challenges!

Thank you everyone for making our big October-November launch party a purrtastic success!  We had so much fun playing along in the Cat Lovers Hop hosted by Janis and seeing all your purrtastic kitty projects!  The winners of our first Crazy for Cats Challenge sponsored by Lawn Fawn will be posted after Challenge #2 ends to give us time to visit you all and pick our winners during the busy holiday season!  Now for our new challenge!

Sponsored by
Ike's Art

Our theme for December is FESTIVE FELINES!
We challenge you to create anything you want with a festive CAT theme! 

All kinds of Cat projects, products and styles are welcome:  paper crafting, altered art, mixed media, rubber stamps and digis stamps, sweet and quirky/odd and creepy cute, contemporary and vintage, spooky and get the idea - all Cats are welcome!  A minimum of 4 entries by different people is needed for Sponsored prizes to be awarded.

Add your festive Cat themed projects in the Inlinkz link-up below following the challenge rules by 11:55pm pacific time on Dec 30.

Crazy for Cats Challenges is dedicated in loving memory to Sue and we all know she would have been delighted to sponsor our challenges so this month Ike's Art is our Sponsor and the prize is the wonderful “Catmouse Tree” digi stamp Sue used to have available as a freebie.  We, the Crazy Cat Ladies DT, used this purrtastic image on our projects today.
