Little Red Wagon #215 - Christmas Birthday.

Good morning on yet another freezing cold day in these parts.

I'm definitely NOT a Winter person so it's about now I start getting grouchy and dreaming of hibernation!

To make matters worse, our puppy has decided he LOVES snow, so what  used to be a quick dash outside to do what needed to be done (!), has now turned into an epic journey of discovery, rolling around and frolicking in the white stuff every time we venture out there!

Thermals will be added to the Christmas list me thinks........hope I've been a good girl otherwise the dogs gonna loose out.

Anyhow onto the purpose of today's post, (but just in case you're wondering, no I have not succumbed to any nasty bacteria my kiddo's may feel the need to share.......yet!)'s Little Red Wagon Day........

Tammy's leading the charge today and as she's a December baby, she'd like to see some Christmassy kinda Birthday cards.

Don't think I've ever made one to be honest, but what I can gather from anyone I've ever come into contact with who has a Birthday within the close vicinity of Christmas, they usually get the 'double up' kinda card/prezzie. This in turn might peeve them, I'm guessing, just a little.......rightly so!

Now as I'm not one to rub salt in the wounds I thought I'd make a sweet, perfectly appropriate Birthday card with no hint or suggestion of recycling, or anything Christmas!

I love the look on this girls face - the kind you see when they find the dreaded Christmas sweater under the tree, and perfect for our topic of conversation!

Digi is from Saturated Canary and coloured with Copic's, while papers are a 2012 winter collection from We R Memory Keepers.

That's about all so head on over to the Little Red Wagon blog for some Christmassy Birthday inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends.
You can wish Tammy a Happy Christmas Birthday while you're there too!

Have a great day and I'll see you Friday,
