For Mew!

If you own are owned by a cat, there are a few things that are always true. If you have a box, the cat will be in it or on it. If you are wrapping a gift, the cat will "help". So, this stamp from Stampendous' super-cute Catnap Christmas set is perfect for tags! Best of all, it's versatile. Change the color of the gift in the image and it'll be perfect for any occasion! BTW, there's a coordinating die set available.

Here's the first of many gift tags with the Catnap Christmas.
