So very sweet, Sue! I missed the last challenge, and that makes me sad. I even bought a special stamp to use. Oh well, glad this one will run longer. I always love your inspiration pieces!

Sue this is so fun and cheerful. That image is just darling and your coloring is, as, usual, terrific. Love the "hugs and kisses" (I have to dig that out of my draw and use it soon) and that punch work. Cute little bids in the sentiment piece. Just a fun card. Thanks for sharing. Oooh - it is Keeya's first Christmas, how lucky she is to get to spend it with you and your family. I'm sure she is being very well behaved with those gifts and goodies. LOL I had one dog that opened the same gift three times. You'd think I would have learned to take it out from under the tree. Have a wonderful week ahead.
