It's the most wonderful time of the year...


I'm back with another adorable Christmas card using stamps from the new The Sweetest Little Town collection by Stacey Yacula at Purple Onion Designs. This time around I grabbed one of the large city street backgrounds to set the scene and inspire the story. This particular one is called Toy Store background and right away I knew that Miles and Beth would be perfect with it. I could totally see this baby bear urging mama bear down the snowy slope to go see all of the wonderful new toys that Santa might bring. Poinsettia, the shopping goose was also added for some extra hustle and bustle and she needed to have her own toddler in tow so I pulled Feather from the older Feather and Birdie set and added him as well. Now everyone is converging on the all important toy store together, ready to make their wish lists. :)

As always Purple Onion gives you the freedom to order from these collections a la carte, which is awesome but if you are someone who 'suffers' from Full Set Syndrome like myself then there is still time to take advantage of the 30% OFF discount when you order the complete Sweetest Little Town collection. This promotion will only be available until Sunday, November 15th so if you are thinking about treating yourself to some new rubber don't wait too long!      

Wanna see more of these cute critters come to life? I plan on coloring up another Sweetest Little Town scene tomorrow morning at 11am PST over on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
