Christmas Puppy from Christina

I just love this cute stamp by Lily of the Valley that my sweet friend from the UK sent me for Christmas last year.  Thanks,  Princess,  for sending me such an awesome stamp.  You can tell she knows my love for fur babies.  It took me a while to get up enough nerve to color it.  I am such a sloppy colorer, I can't stay in the lines, I need to go back to kindergarten, but I think the little kids would laugh at seeing a grandma in their class.   I will just practice at home.   This was my first attempt to color this and I am working on another one.

The Twisted Sisters challenge was given by Kathy this week.   She challenged us to make a card with a critter on it, do some type of embossing, us a die or punch and put a sentiment on the front.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Come back soon, ya hear.

  5. A creative mind thinks outside the box, so I'm assuming that's true for an artist who colors outside the lines! :) Your stamp gift is wonderful and you've paired it up beautifully with the coordinating papers. It's a fabulous Christmas card. :)

    Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
