It's Max! "S" is for stocking with Max ;)

Hi there! We are finally seeing the sunshine peek out from the clouds after an entire day of torrential rain yesterday - wow! I was about to suggest the kids take the floats out of the pool and have them ready for getting around town via boats and floats! It was a good time to catch up on crafting though and I was able to color up Max! He is beyond cute - and reminds me of our Buddy, our 2 year old Jack Russell :) My dd12 is in love with everything puppies so this will be her Christmas card this year. Her favorite color is pink, so I colored/paired Max with some pink/green themed cardstock and dsp. The inside verse is one I made up just to be ....... punny... *hee hee!*

Does this look a wee bit familiar?   Here's my card .........

and my little Buddy- Cmas '09 (just for 4 mos old!)

So cute!  Here's a side view:

                Ruh-roh .... cheesy, right?!  She's 12 - so it'll work, ROFL! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
