Deck the Halls

Deck the...oh, it's a little too early for that.

I found the cutest challenge blog for Christmas cards. I figure if I start now by playing at Jingle Belles, then I won't look up in November and be in a rush.

I sort my stamps by manufacturer, except for Christmas stamps...they have their own category so I can find them easily and I am not having to flip through each favorite stamp company.  :)

Is this little guy darling or what all tangled up in Christmas lights?!?

Colored with Copic markers, then added just a touch of irRESISTible Pico Shimmer to all the lights and his nose.

Challenges Entered:
Jingle Belles  -  Christmas card using a song
Tiddly Inks  -  Anything Goes

Edited to add:  Valerie was kind enough to comment on this post and suggest another Christmas card challenge site...woohoo!!! 
Christmas Stampin' all year long  -  One layer card

Let's go Shopping:
Tiddly Inks:  Be Merry Pup
Copic Markers
Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko:  irRESISTible Pico Shimmer

Copics Used:
dog: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
