I was inspired to use Judy's layout (loosely) and color scheme, right down to the sweet striped paper. I also wanted to add a critter for Merry Monday, but it took me too long - I didn't finish until after the deadline. I'm sure I saw this cute koala holding a Christmas tree somewhere else, but I couldn't seem to find any other samples when I was looking yesterday. He needed a Santa hat for Christmas Card Challenges, too - isn't it adorable? I used a marker to color the cuff, so he'll be hanging out at Addicted to Stamps and More! this week. While I'm out linking up everywhere else, I'll slip in at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round, since the January challenge is Anything Goes.
