Sharing the Joy



Once I saw this new holiday DSP I knew I had to drag that whiskery nutcracker out of retirement ! He is such a fun guy!  

And speaking of fun guys and whiskers......these two furry critters graduated from obedience school this week.  Not too sure about how obedient they really are in general but they sure are adorable!




My daughter's pups:  Cooper and Bentley.....usually called Coop and Benny!



I used the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch this week along with the Tic Tac Toe challenge at Stamp Ink Paper.  (die cut, vellum, emboss)







Stamps:  Santa Stache, Ready for Christmas
Ink: Black, Stampin' Blends, Copics, Versamark
Paper:  Whisper White, Gold Foil, Christmas Around the World DSP, Vellum

How cute! Glad you dusted off that stamp. He looks amazing with the DSP. Fun card to go along with those two pups who look full of fun themselves! :)

Awesome card, Linda. Love that you put that nutcracker back to work...he retired way too early anyway! Those pups can certainly get away with some bad behavior based on their cuteness factor!

Such a fun card!! My neighbour collects nutcrackers and would go nuts over this card! Wonderfully done :)

Such a fun card and those two pups look anything but obedient - they have a look of mischief in their eyes - but they are oh so adorable!
