Be Merry

Hi, my friends.  Have you all recovered from the Thanksgiving holiday?  Not sure I have.  What a feast and lots of time spent with the family and friends.  Probably (no, not probably, I did) eat way too much, but it is always so good.  I love all the side dishes we get to choose from.  Anyway, gearing up for the next holiday - Christmas!!!!!

Meantime, back here in blog land, it's time for another {Pin}spirational challenge!  Here's the adorable photo that we used this week for our inspiration.
Isn't he just the cutest little pup.  I'm still a few cards short for Christmas so I decided to create a Christmas card with my image this time.
I just love the big glasses.  This adorable owl image came from our fabulous sponsor this week 2 Cute Ink.
