O Tannenbaum

This week at Merry Monday the theme is Christmas Carols. Perverse me could only think of such gems as "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" and "Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo" which made me think perhaps I should sit this challenge out. You know, just for your guys' sake.
But I stuck it out and came up with some caroling kitties who are not singing about feces or murderous reindeers. They are singing "O Christmas Tree" in German because they are multi-lingual kittens.

That said I am also going to link up to Scrappymo's Rudolph Days with this card because I think that's expecting too much of me to crank out two Christmas cards this week. In fact, I think I need a nap now.

The Fine Print: Caroling Kitties from Stampin' Up "Merry Crittermas." Stitched landscape die, tree die, and Marshmallow Splash spray by A Muse Studio. Ribbon from my stash. Apologies for the crap job my camera does. Meow.

Aww, this is cute, and I must admit I've never heard of the Mr. Hanky Poo song, although gramma got runned over by that reindeer at least a gazillion and 14 times! (aack!) It's because of that song I no longer listen to Christmas radio songs! Enjoy that nappy poo :)

This is adorable and I am breathing a sigh of relief, my friend! Although I was curious about how you would depict grandma! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

It's an adorable card, and I enjoyed reading about your inspiration. Hey, I Laugh when I hear about Granma & the reindeers, and it's one of my favorite songs (is that weird or what?!) Have never heard the other song however. Your caroling kitties & their tree is a most refreshing take on the Christmas Carols theme! Love the ornaments and stitched snowbanks too! WTGo. TFS

Ermm...that should have been reindeer. I'll blame the computer!

So glad you kept thinking about the challenge, Judy, & didn't have to use run over reindeer! This is so cute & perfect for that carol!
