**for the congratulations Elise blog hop, click here! Or scroll down!**

what a fun day!! are you enjoying this wonderful, magical, winter wonderland of a lawnscaping blog hop?! i know, the talent is crazy good, and just looking at all the cards make me want to curl up with a nice cup of cocoa and blanket! 


you should have arrived here from anya's blog - AMAZING! she's such a brilliant color-er, i love her cards! 

as a quick reminder - don't forget there are lots of prizes involved, but you have to leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway! you have all weekend to enjoy this wintery goodness, but only until sunday 12/15 at 11:59pm EST to leave a comment for the prizes!! what are the wonderful goodies up for grab? well, you'll have to check out the lawnscaping blog for jusicy details! 

so my card, i'll make it short and sweet so you can be on your merry way! :)
i don't think i was alone when i say i saw this halloween card by chari and thought it was AMAZING!!! i had an idea to dress up the same little doxie in a christmas sweater, how cute right?! so after i made this card, i showed it to chari and asked if i could post it (i didn't want to copy or anything! she was truely inspiring and she should know!) and she said yes! :) yahoo!!
so here is my mischevious little doxie stealing a cookie! shhh!!


so cute, right? ha ha!! everything was paper pieced! the cookies and little pup are also popped up for dimension. oh, and the card base was spritzed (heavily) with some studio calico shine! oooo, aaaah!
do you notice those little reindeer antlers on him?! lol! those are actually snowman arms from making frosty friends! lol!! love it! and of course a little red enamel dot for the nose! 


in addition to making frosty friends, the stamp sets i used were critters at the dog park, cozy christmas, say cheese and bows and holly (for the word 'happy' in the sentiment).
so that's it! 
you're next stop is ashley! and dude, i can't wait for you to see what she made! LOVE her work! :)
and don't forget, if you get lost along the way, you can always go the lawnscaping blog to get back on track! 
enjoy!
