It's not long now til that Night of Night's that is Christmas Eve.
I wanted to send a card to all my Blogland friends, but I just don't have that many stamps. So instead I'll share the How-To of the cards I made this year.

-Scrap of cream-colored cardstock
-Craft paints : dark brown, white, and beige
-Background paper or blank card

Now glue on his other two legs like so-
I finished mine off with some tiny stitches.
