Stanley ... a digi image found at Beccy's Place.  
I just adore this chubby little fellow.
I started out coloring the Christmas ball.  I chose this color of aqua green because I had never used this particular pencil in the box.  (That's all well and good until you need to find paper to match.  Luckily I did, in a MS paper pad I got on clearance last year. )  I gave the ball a good coat of liquid glass and then a sprinkle of fine glitter to make it look good and sparkly.  The gold on the top also has a clear liquid glass coating.  The DP and kraft paper underneath were embossed with a fun ornament folder, before I added the fussy cut image and computer generated sentiment on top.
My mother's neighbor is always quick to lend a hand and brings my mom's paper to her back door everyday.  Last week he even came over and removed a very dead, unidentifiable, half eaten critter that a hawk had dropped in her yard.  This will be a perfect card for him.

I am also sending Stanley to the following challenges:
