Hope those pressies contain some stash...or juicy bones!

OK, so the challenge at Stamp Something is Thankful Somethings. And I can think of a lot of things under the Christmas tree our family can be thankful of! lol

The stamp is from Whimsy stamps and it's called Santa's Puppy Helper. And the sentiment is from Winter Seals combined with text from MFT. Told you, you're going to see that set a lot!!

And guess what - the papers are from Whimsy as well!!! I just got these in mail and couldn't wait to use them!! lol This set is called Very Merry. Such vibrant colours and beautiful patterns.

The image was coloured with Distress inks. I've been having fun with them lately :)

I would like to enter following challenges:
Paper Pretties - thank you
Simon Says Stamp - sparkle 
Stampin' Royalty - patterned paper 
A Spoonful Of Sugar - distressing 
Critter Sketch - texture 
Lexi's Creations (2 weeks) - traditional christmas colors 
Pollycraft - glittery christmas 
Crazy 4 Challenges - christmas 
Secret Crafter - sparkle and shine 
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Seasonal

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
