Merry Christmas

It's finally here!  Can you believe Christmas is tomorrow?  My little grandson is so excited and it's so much fun to be around a child that still believes in Santa.  I'm glad I live so close to him.  I just can't image not being able to spend Christmas with him ... I am truly blessed.  Now, do I have any of his gifts wrapped?  No...and believe me, since he's the only grandchild, I've got a ton of wrapping to do.  So enough blabbering, let's get to my card.

I used Santa's Puppy Helper.  Isn't he just the cutest puppy with his little antlers on his head?  Hmm, I sure could use his help wrapping gifts today LOL!  This is a MelJen's Designs rubber stamp and you can find it at Whimsy Stamps.  I used copics and prismacolor pencils to color my image and added a little Stardust Stickles to the jinglebell on his antler and the wrapped candy.  Then there's a little Glossy Accents on the candy cane, and the puppy's eyes and nose.  I added some ribbon and a bow and tied a few tiny jinglebells onto the bow.

Thank you for stopping by and ...
I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
