December's on its way!

Happy Fri-Yay, friends!

Tomorrow is December -one of the best months in the year ♥
And, in our family, also one of the busiest!
It's the holidays AND our 3 daughters all have a birthday in December ...
good times!
(and good tidings we bring! Hee hee!)

Today was my final coloring for The Daily Marker 30 Day.
Hard to believe a month of coloring has gone by.
It's always a joyous month to enrich our creative side and color!
And, for me, it gives me a chance to look for the stamp sets that
haven't had a chance to 'play!'

Today's card is one of those 'yay for play' cards!
I've used 2 My Favorite Things stamp sets ~
Santa is checking his list ...
and he's checking to see if you've been naughty I'm SURE we are all on it!

I was last year!

I hope I'm on it again this year! :)
For my card base, I used the striped paper as a base ~
and a glittery circle pattern to bring out the holiday look.
I used a sentiment from Deck the Howls as well
to match the Santa and the sweet pup ♥

This card really makes me want to make all my Christmas cards tonight!
I colored a bunch of the images today from both sets ...
looks like the weekend plans are made :)

I'll add this to Kathy's link up on her amazing blog here!

 Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
