Merry Christmas - dog with a present!

Howdie all, I am back and my butt is firmly planted in my craft chair!  After 11 or so weeks on the road covering over 3000km on the bike, getting an hilarious suntan line on the legs the 3 off us were very happy to get back to Melbourne yesterday - at the moment Neil is happily fixing up the garden, Kouta is happily sleeping on his fav spot on the couch and I am definitely happy to be in the craft room!  Not sure what is going on with our weather at the moment - 6 days ago we were suffering in 40 degree heat and today we are suffering with 15 degree temperatures!
Thought I would start out with a nice and easy sketch to follow from Feeling Sketchy, I have used the colour challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps - mint, emerald and rose, made a Christmas card for Top Tip Tuesday and have incorporated circles for Kaboodle Doodles ...

The dog is from AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' set.  I have made a little santa hat to give it a bit off a christmas feel to the dog.  My eldest sister has a dog that is not well so I thought this is the perfect card for her this Christmas.

materials - white cardstock, C'D sunrise orchid card; Kaisercraft 'silly season' paper; AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps, MFT christmas ornaments stamp set; Staz On jet black ink; Crayola pencils; Spellbinders standard circles large and petite scalloped circles large nesties; Kaisercraft green rhinestones; Marvy emerald pen.
Thanks for looking.
