Merry Little Christmas...


It's Wednesday and I have a card to share for today's review preview over at CC Designs. :)
I've been coloring this Merry Christmas stamp off and on for a few days because there is quite a lot going on in this super cute scene. Henry and Twila are busy decorating the tree with a bit of 'help' from their four-legged friends and I think I must have been having flashbacks from my own childhood memories of Christmas because I gave these kiddos the same brown shag carpeting that I grew up with, LOL! I didn't even have any papers in mind as I worked on this image which is unusual for me. But I felt pretty safe, considering I have a lot of Christmas paper scraps to pull from and ended up with a fun mix of prints to highlight Henry and Twila's Christmas joy. 

There is even more holiday inspiration to be found from my fellow CCD teamies over on the CCD blog today so be sure to check that out as well! And of course all of the new release stamps can be found right here in the CCD store. :)

Well, I'm off to spend the day looking for a new clothes dryer... I'm tired of fighting with the current one to even turn on so wish me luck that I can finally kick it to the curb! ;)
