New Christmas Card----

Blue with grey, its a great feeling am I right?

I am starved, tired, cranky with buyers remorse and want to hold my kitty so I am not talking much. I had a great day up till my 4 craft stores let me down pretty badly. Prices are all over the map and good luck getting somone who knows what they have. 4 stores 4 different 6pm buzz killers.  punks

Anyways lets get me happy, let me show you my pretty today! After uploading photos I seen her hair need a bit more work to blend.  Trust me after I type this I will blend her hair! No way will I send this to live with my Gram like that!

And Look I remembered to take a shot of the inside before I wrote my message!
I am entering it into the following cool challenges:
