WOW can you believe it is December already? All of here at Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co want to wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas! It is time for our December Blog hop and we have some great deals and stamp sets for you this month. 


 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" You've Got Style"


The dog in this set I assume is supposed to be a Scottish terrier, but when I saw it It made me think of my husband's dog when we met. He had a  miniature schnauzer named DUCHESS. Duchess was a one person dog and that one person was my husband. The two were very close. When we started dating, this dog was not happy. If I sat next to my husband she would growl at me and show her teeth and crowd her way in between us. If I even moved an inch she would try to snap at me.

Her is a picture of my husband and his dog DUCHESS taken over20 years ago in his back yard pool.

 
I think this card will be a Christmas card for my husband.
