Those are really cute! I would definitely buy them if I didn't make my own (which are not half as good as yours, I might add)!

Omg...and many more of those Omg....What a wonderful illustration! You did wonderful. I love how you framed it with the kitty tail, and the background is great too. Just enough to set it off, but not enough to detract from the main subject of the cat.

The only change I might have made {and not saying you need to, because this is just too cute} would be to add a Santa Hat? Or candy cane? Just ideas for later. This one is just the bomb, now!!! PM me, and I will give you my address?  Roll Eyes

Your friends and family are going to love this one!!!!!! Enjoy your holidays!

Thanks everyone for the feedback on this Smiley
I was very excited to do this little project. It has been a while since I dared to really try anything, after a long time of not being productive at all.
I need to be creative to feel good, its just part of me. But sometimes lots of things hold me back massively. Sometimes it makes me scared to start again.
But this turned out well, I had so much positive reponds to it that it made me really hyper for a couple of weeks  Cool lol. While secretly I have a lack of energy most of the time. Chronic fatique without any clear cause. Its not that it was gone, but somewhere it helped.
It is definately what I need to be doing more again, like in the past.

Thanks for the uplifting replies  Cheesy
If I manage to make more in the coming months, I will show it here again.
