A Lot Like Christmas?

This weekend I am enjoying a few extra quiet days at the beach, 
YES, the beach is great in the winter too!
And here in South Carolina it is actually a bit cooler as we had our first freeze last night...
well it is December.  
In between my shopping excursions and enjoying the wonderful 
fresh seafood meals, I'm steadily working on completing my
Christmas cards for 2016.  
Today's posting is also another entry for the weekend challenge on 
Addicted to Card Making as well as the other blog challenges listed at the end of the posting.  
For this card I used the Unity stamp, Just Skating By.  
I don't know about you - but I can never just skate by Unity, I always have to stop and shop!  
So with my limited supplies of 12 pieces of Christmas paper, some white cardstock, a handful of Copic markers, a few tools, some scraps of yarn and plenty of ink ~ here's what I came up with.

Did I mention poor lighting?  My green designed paper and inked matted paper look more brown.  And the glossy accents aren't showing up very well, but hopefully you can use your imagination on this one. 
The cute little fellow does remind me that the closer we get to Christmas, we need to take time to stop and enjoy the reason for this wonderful season.  I made four of these cards - they are going to four of the ladies I worked closely with before retirement 
and who's friendship I still treasure.  
So in your busy schedules, make time this month for your girlfriends.  
Be sure they know how important they are to you and how blessed you are to have them in your life. 

This posting will also be listed on:
Artsy Cards and my personal site, Not Just Scraps.
