Have Yourself an Artsy Little Christmas

Have Yourself an Artsy Little Christmas

Happy Caturday!! Are you ready for the unveiling of my 2015 Christmas card? I’d hoped to have them mailed out and in everycat’s paw by today but TW is lucky if she’s gonna help me until after Christmas. She hasn’t mailed any of her cards neither; in fact, she hasn’t even received them. HAH! Mr. Zazzle is taking his dear old time.

Let me take this opportunity to thank everyone for the lovely cards they’ve sent—both e-cards and snail mail cards. I’ve loved them all and have gotten waaaayyyy more than the peeps. My furrends are the best looking furrends any cat can have and I have to smile to see your smiling faces on your cards. That’s not to say we don’t love the other cards too. Each will be hung on the front door with love.

I decided to use my card as my Caturday Art since it was designed in Photoshop using an old art image of mine and a border and tree purchased from depositphotos. The original design we wanted to use was done in an online program with the depositphoto frame but we couldn't fit it into either Zazzle or VistaPrint’s template without cutting part of it off.

I liked the idea of laying “under” a Christmas tree so we went back to the drawing boards. This time we took their measurements into PS and designed a card around them. We didn’t have time to play with another art image so we used the one you likes from a few weeks ago. The reason we haven’t mailed it out—aside from TW laziness—is that while we spent a great deal of time designing the front, we never thought about what I wanted to say on the inside. TW threw something together that neither of us are happy with now. She also didn’t center the frame on the page right, something she fixed when she designed their cards. (What’s wrong with that picture?) Feel free to drag this card off the page and hang it with your other cards. Without further do-do …

  2. Your card is lovely. I will put it on my sidebar and my ecards page.
    I hope my snail mail card has arrived safely to you. My mum was supposed to put some of my fur in for you as you sent me some of yours last year, but the stoopy woman forgot.

  9. I love your card CK. I was tempted to use mine for caturday art too, but I didn't design it - Zoolatry did it for us. Somehow it didn't seem quite right. Maybe we'll use it tomorrow for Sunday Selfie instead. M is way behind too and can't seem to get anything done.

  11. Those are beautiful CK. We purray y'all have a Merry and blest Christmas.

    Weez not mean to make you feel sad. We really do have all we need. We got a furever home and a roof over our heads and each other and all our furiends. We so enjoy seein' all of you gettin' your secwet purresents and findin' out who picked yous name. We might not be able to affurd to purrticipate by sendin' and receivin', but we get to purrticipate and enjoy thru all of you. We never had Christmas afur social media, so it's a lot of fun just to watch. Weez sorry they took TW's free fone away. Dat dusn't seem right. They told mommy se wuld have to recertify every year, but nuffin' 'bout takin' da fone away. Altho' mommy hasn't decided to keep it. Since she has to pay fur it, she finks it might not be such a gweat deal. Da fone bein' so small and all. we'll see. Anyways, we just felt bad dat we made you feel bad. Dat was never our intent. Have a pawsum weekend.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi
