 We have an exciting New Release happening at Digi Doodle Studios!  One that is very close to my heart.  It's all about Christmas Pets, and since I make a series of cards for pet lovers every year, I absolutely love every one of them!

This one is extra special for me, because Maine Coons are my favourite domestic cat.  The first one I met was being housed at the SPCA while his humans were away on holiday.  I volunteered there for a while, and spent my time loving the cats one-by-one, only leaving a cat for the next, when it decided it was done with me.  

On entering one cubby, I met the biggest domestic cat I had ever seen.  I walked over to the bench he was sitting on, and when I got there, he stood up on his back legs and 'walked up' my body with his front legs, placing one on each of my shoulders, anticipating a hug.  I was instantly smitten!

Maine Coons are known for their size and the tuft of fur on the tips of their ears.  They're gorgeous creatures!

This one is called Memphis.

I have coloured the image with markers.  My papers are from the Studio Light Winter days paper pack.  I've added a few gems and Jolee's snowflakes and star, plus Jolee's bells.

Join us in our Facebook Group to see more Christmas Pets.  They'll be available in store on Friday.

BUT, you will find a previous release of Christmas pups already in store, so be sure to pop over for look there, if you're looking for man's best friend.

Thanks for popping in for a look!
