Oh Christmas Tree..

Hello, I'm back again with the card I made for this week's LIM challenge : red and green! The photo is not great due to the fact it was taken at a very peculiar angle whilst attempting to stop a very determined Mathilda from eating it!!(Also very poor light makes it look a funny colour!)
I think that this year our Christmas tree will have to  be a very small one, balanced on a very high shelf!!!  The Marauder gained over 3 kilos in weight in 2 weeks, she can now reach the kitchen worktops (not condoned!) if she stands on her tippytoes! Her paws are huge! I think she may be part goat or monkey as she loves to climb! Her teeth are sharp! She steals my stuff - but I really love her!
How can I resist her!?

Have a good evening!

Gorgeous card, love that tree! Adorable puppy too - you can't stay cross with them when they're that cute, can you? We're not even risking a tree this year - we've got a 3 month old kitten and I think he'd have too much fun climbing it! Hugs, Lisa x
