Winners for Challenge #264 - Fur & Feathers

Everyone loves their pets and there are some adorable stamps out there to prove it!  We had so much fun checking out all your blog posts with not only your amazing pet projects, but also with your stories and photos of your own pets, especially around Christmas time! Thank you for sharing all that with us! It was a definite festive uplift! But then we had to choose winners! How do you do that when they are all so cute? But that's our job as a Design Team, so here are the winners for Challenge #264:

How adorable is this gob-smacked kitty?!! We loved the "deer in the headlights" expression and the sparkly Santa hat! The stencilled background kind of looks like he was busy playing with a ball of wool, getting into some mischief, so with that awesome sentiment, which box would you tick: Nice, naughty, cute or all of the above? We're thinking the last one and Nancy's workmanship and creativity should earn her a place on Santa's team without a doubt!!

Our Featured Artist is: Valérie

Valérie's perturbed pup gave us all a laugh!  The look on his face as he wonders how that star got on his tail! Valérie's colouring skills and her beautiful CAS design with the offset green and red frames create the most eye-pleasing Christmas pet card you could wish for, a great candidate for Featured Artist this week! Congratulations, Valérie!
