Waiting for Santa?

Hello My Friends!

I'm so sorry it's been so long since my last post.  Somehow life got in the way and "busy" doesn't begin to cover our schedule of late.  Thank you SO much for all your wonderful notes and comments.  They mean more than you may know.  :-)  We had an awesome family weekend at the Gaylord Resort at National Harbor just down the river from Washington D.C.  We got to see the "ICE" Merry Madagascar display while we were there and it was simply incredible.  If you haven't heard of it, check it out online.  It was magical. 
Here's a photo of us inside the display with the parkas they gave us to wear.   It was a toasty NINE DEGREES in there!!  Brrrrr!

Ok...so I finally got back to creating and working on a few Christmas gifts too down in my stamp room.
The project I have to share today is one I call....
"Waiting for Santa"

This is "Frankie"....and he's waiting for Santa to arrive.  His dog house is all spiffy and his stocking is hung and ready to be filled.  I don't know about you but I think he might be playing "possum".  Oh well....I bet Santa will leave his treats anyway.  

Here's a view of the inside...

The card stock colors I used include:
 Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Basic Black.  The lights that are strung on Frankie's house are punched out of the Silver Glimmer Paper and strung on Baker's Twine that started out as White.  I made it into the green light cord by inking it with my Garden Green marker.

I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  Frankie just warms my heart.  I hope you like him too.

Alrighty....I'd better get back to creating.  So much to share...so little time.  :-)

Wishing you a magical day,


  1. I have just found your blog Michelle and I love eveything you make, you are my type of girl! Your blog is so so so beautiful x

  2. Michelle, you are so very blessed. Your family is precious!
    Your card it too cute for words!
    You are so talented!!!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. "Frankie" is adorable! Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!

  4. How adorable! Reminds me of our dog. Thanks for sharing it!

  5. This is awesome. What a great idea. I think I will make this into a hanging banner over my dogs bed or near the Christmas tree. Better yet, I will attempt to make this a huge Christmas Doggie Stocking.

  6. I just found your card and I am in love with Frankie!! He is adorable. I do English Bullie rescue and something like this would be so perfect to send to the new "parents" of bullies that have been adopted. Would you share with me how you made Frankie? Was it a stamp or is he punched? Thank you so much for sharing such a darling card! I agree with you-- I love Frankie!
