3M: Fox friend!

Happy Friday, friends!

I just love this time of year!
The holiday excitement is in the air ~
the Christmas music, the sparkle, the wonder!
Our home is filled with laughter and merriment
 and all the joys that Christmas holds.
My heart is full ♥

Something else that I love ....
the 3 Musketeers!
We often call ourselves the 3M for short -
because we are either too tired, too old to remember,
 or going 200 mph to type it out!  
Just sayin'!

I'm the hostess this month and chose the image to send out.
I spotted this wooden Stampendous stamp at Tuesday Morning for just $3.99!
I'm pretty sure I squealed out loud 
because two of my favorite-est things ever are on ONE stamp!
Snow(man) and woodland animals!
Oh, be still my heart!

This is my card with Fox Friend from Stampendous, 
using plaids and holly berry paper as an accent.
I created a small frame to pop up around the image
with 3d foam for dimension.
 In the sky, there are faint embossed snowflakes
and some Wink of Stella on the ground and stocking.
This card just makes me smile when I see it ~
the artist did a wonderful representation of happiness and harmony
in the snowman and fox -
just what the meaning of friendship truly is ♥

The inside of my card is using a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh
Winter Woodland:

The second part of the challenge was to share what we hope to see in our
stocking this year since this cute image has one in it.
For me, my sweet husband and kids always sneak a Starbucks gift card 
in mine each year - they know what makes my heart smile!

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here!
Thanks for stopping by today.

I'll enter my card into these challenges:
