Have you been good or bad?

This is something I wonder every time I come home.....and see my Siamese cats....have you been good or bad?  My cats are gorgeous, but can be soooo naughty.  My boyfriend has 2 Siamese and I have 3.  He can have fresh flowers and plants, I can't.  He can leave a pen/pencil out on a table, I can't.  He can leave rubberbands out, I can't.  And his have claws so I don't know if this is payback.  We both LOVE our cats and all of our cats our spoiled!  It is interesting when I pick up food for all of them since his cats each eat different foods and mine eat differently than his so it looks like we have a cat farm.
For my card, the adorable sentiment is from TLC and the image is from Bugaboo.

Hello, Lisa Lynn! This is so cute and adorable! I love this Bugaboo image! Your colouring is so beautiful! Cute sketch too! I enjoyed reading about your kitties and your BF's kitties! I totally understand about not being able to leave anything out, like a pencil. Brian left one out on the coffee table the other day and it ended up providing loads of playtime enjoyment for Honeydew! Today I found a toy mouse in my bed! Brian saw Honeydew walking down the hall with it in his mouth - I was happy it was a toy mouse and not a real one hehe! Glad to see you at the hop!

Oh, what an appropriate sentiment for cats!!! lol... Love the cute expression on this kitty's face because he knows he's been naughty!!! Your layered diecuts look so pretty along with all the other elements on this fun Christmas card.

At our house, we just assume the cats were bad and blame them for all the mishaps. Ha. We have a couple of Siamese X cats, including Chaienne and Othello, but no Siamese patterned kitties. Our family LOVES what the Siamese brings to the mix in a Siamese X.

Siamese are long-lived, intelligent, and quirky. Bred to be the royal palace guards in ancient Siam, our Othello still retains some of that genetic code. He's at least as good at alerting us to strangers as our dog is. The best cats I have ever had were ones with Siamese in them. Life with 5 of them must be a trip!

Thanks so much for helping kick-off my Cat Lovers Hop with this wonderful card!!!

Super cute Lisa! I'm drooling over all the yummy layers and that cute kitty with the rosy cheeks!

Great kitty card I am here from the hop

Haha, I know exactly what you mean when you describe your kitty tribe. When we had 5 cats we never had a Christmas tree...because it wouldn't be standing for longer than a day before it was demolished! Cats definitely have their own way of doing things, and they usually aren't amenable to discussion! This cute cat may look innocent now but you just know he's up to something naughty sooner or later!
