CCAYR Mid-month Inspiration Post--Use Red and/or Pink and a heart

Wednesday evening greetings, blog readers!  We're headed down the slope to the weekend--YAY!  Friday can't get here fast enough for me!  The hubby and I are going out to dinner Friday evening, and after that...50 Shades Darker!  WOOHOO!  I read the books, and we saw the first movie, so I am READY to see the next installment on the big screen.  Jamie Dornan is easy on the eyes, I must say!
Anyhow...moving on to the reason for this post...another Christmas card for 2017!!!  Oh, and also it's my DT make for CCAYR.  ;)
In deciding what to make for this challenge, I rummaged thru my container of wood Christmas stamps, and found this forgotten gem!  I just love Fluffles!  The situations he ends up in...too funny!  I gave him some sparkle with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen for his festive little sweater, the red scalloped layer and both hearts.  The hearts are also coated with Glossy Accents.  The pink layer was embossed with the Snowflake Trim folder by Darice.  Simple and sweet little Christmas card, I'd say!
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #26:  ATG or optional "Holiday Humor" theme
ABC Christmas:  "C" for Creatures, "D" for Dimension (one or both choices)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  ATG Christmas (2nd entry)
Snowflake's Promise #37:  ATG or optional "Valentine's/Love" theme
CHNC #320:  ATG or optional "cute" theme ( I think this qualifies as cute!)
Animal Friends #47Use an animal and no patterned paper
Die Cuttin Divas #304:  Valentine colors (red, pink and/or purple)
Crafting from the Heart #146:  ATG (2nd entry)
Sweet Stampers #4:  Add a sentiment
Love To Craft #7:  ATG (2nd entry)
Thanks for stopping by to see me!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, and the impending weekend. 
God Bless!
