Holiday Happiness

"The cow says 'moo', the sheep says 'baa', three singing pigs say 'la, la, la'..." Did anyone else read that book to their little ones?? I think it's by Sandra Boynton. Anyway, that is what this fun Eat Cake Graphics stamp that I got from Paper Garden reminds me of, well that and a rousing rendition of "O Christmas Tree" which makes this card perfect for the Bah Humbug Challenge and the Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Challenge for a Christmas card. :-) Aren't they just the sweetest? I made my card to fit into a small business envelope, because this image is really quite tall, but other than that the card is fairly clean and simple. I stamped the Animal Stack on watercolor paper, watercolored with Tombow markers and then trimmed. The stamp on the top half of the background is the Quilt cover a card from Paper Garden. The paper and ribbon is also from PGP. The sentiment is from a Clear Dollar set called Jingle All the Way.

I'm going to enter this card in the "Old McDonald Had a Farm" challenge at Paper Playtime, too, since it is a perfect fit!
