Merry Christmas


To all my blogging friends and followers, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!
This will probably be my last card for 2012 because time is getting short and I've a ton of things to do before our family starts arriving for Christmas but I wanted to pass along my holiday wishes to you and yours with this puppy 'singing his song'. 
Dog Song is a digi image designed by the very talented Chrissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps and the card was published in Issue 10 of the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine (available in print or the free version).   I used Copics as my colouring medium, the paper is from one of my favourite collections by Bo Bunny - it's from a 6" x 6" pad called Snowflake Collection.  I've been looking for another because I've used many papers from this pad and it's nearly done but I haven't had any luck so it must not be available any more.  The sentiment is computer generated and the brads are Basic Grey.
Have a safe and happy holiday season and I will see you in 2013!

This is gorgeous Marilyn. I love that image, your colouring is fabulous and those papers are beautiful. It is a bit annoying when they seem to stop making products that we like so much.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.
