Merry Everything

Happy Saturday, one and all!
What a beautiful day we had, a lovely, crisp fall day!  I sat out on the porch and watched all the birds coming to our feeders.  Then tonight, we investigated an odd sound coming from the woods near our house. Two of our schnauzers were going nuts over it.  Well, DH found the sound on the internet - it was that of a barking FOX!  WOW! 
I have a card today using the sketch over at Christmas Challenges.
I have a number of friends with December birthdays, which I often forget during this busy holidady season, so here is a card that I could give them to celebrate the birthday I missed AND the upcoming holiday!!!  I cover my bases with this one!  Of course, it won't work well for the other 11 months, but that's okay.
I used a Sassy Cheryl digital image (Lucy Lou's Gift to Santa) and colored it with Copics and Spicas.  I used Nestie #22 to cut out the image and another nestie for the polka dotted circle.  Red cs is from Michaels and dp is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather.  I die cut the sentiment (Penny Black) and added faux stitching around the edges and a string of rhinestones beneath.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - use something >= 6months old (dp is from 2010)
Little Claire's Designs - Christmas Themed
Paper Creator's Crafts - All About Christmas
ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for Wrapping
Thank you for stopping by!
