Merry Christmas!

Well since I haven't crafted all week - and I don't have any cards to show off ... I thought I would share my family and Friends card with you - each year I make photo cards for our family and friends.... it started with one dog and two cats. And each year we added an animal, they got added to our Christmas photo card. I was having to get pretty creative to get them all on the photo.  And this year I just gave up - no way was I going to get over 40 animals on one 4x6 photo - So I went with all of the new additions for the year, and of course Libbie, Gato and Autie!

So this is the front to Christmas card -




And a new "tradition" to my Christmas cards is a poem.. or as close as I get to a poem on the inside - this years wasn't my best. I think I need to start earlier next year! LOL I say that every year!

Libbie, the little blue eyed Aussie
has a very spoiled home.
And if you ever saw her toys,
you would even say she has spoiled child syndrome.
All of the other animals
used to laugh and call her rat
Mom and Dad never let poor Libbie herd and play
so she was left to torment the cat.

Then one Winter Day
Mom and Dad came home to say:
"Libbie with your eyes so bright,
we found you a boyfriend named Autie tonight"

Then all the donkeys rolled their eyes
as they shouted out in dismay
"Oh No, Libbie ,
another AUSSIE, on Christmas Day!" 







And yes - Saturday we go early in the morning to pick up Little Autie! So from all of us here at Donkey Smiles... We hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday!
