Caroling Cats card


My neighbor has a cat that sings...loud and often.  It's pretty cute.  Mine barely say meow.  They communicate through their out little purr language.  I'm ok without them singing and feel sorry for them when I do.  I cannot sing.  These cute little carolers look like they can carry a tune quite well.  I used bright colors in their scarves and continued it into the outside layers.
