Jolly Critters

Hello,

Thank you so much for encouraging comments left on last post of mine. Well, if you're not tired yet... just let me know when you are, I still have a few to come. :)

Today I'm sharing something that was meant to be very simple but what came to be quite more difficult. I planned to stamp the puppy, colour him and add the sentiment. Well, I did that until I had coloured him and noticed that there is this stocking hanging on the air... Hmmp. Well got to do something to it, so I drew the table. There is something wrong with the perspective but for a holiday card, it'll do. This is sent to my dear friend that I've known since we were four years old, she loves dogs.. 

Stamps used: Jolly Critters and Beauty of the Season.

  16. Winner and still champion...that's you in my book. Love everything about this card including the table you drew. You're such a fabulous artist...the "candy cane" bone and the furry little dog (I need instruction on how you made it look so fluffy). This card tells a sweet and heart-warming story...you should be illustrating books.
