Not a Creature was Stirring...........

Good Morning friends.  Hope your Tuesday is going well.  Sun is shining, but very cold here.

I've decided to try to make a Christmas card a week this year.  I have so many beautiful Christmas stamps, and in the rush at holiday time, somehow always come up short with homemade cards.
And there are some great Christmas only challenges to keep you motivated and inspired.

So, today's card is for the challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge, and the theme for their first challenge of the year is "A is for Animal.  Use an animal on your card.

I make the decision every year to make a Christmas card a week. Still haven't managed it, so good luck to you I hope you do better than I do.

This is a darling image. I like the flourishes you used with it.
