Waiting By The Christmas Tree

Santa is putting on his suit, the elves are packing up the sledge, the reindeer are warming up  – it’s Christmas Eve! 

I hope you have got all your presents including the ones for the pets? My pet cat – Squeaky would hunt under the tree ’til she found her present then she would sit with it waiting patiently until Christmas morning. Bless her, how she knew that gift was for her I will never know. It wasn’t always a smelly pressy – I could understand her finding that! I think she read all the gift tags 🙂

So here is a Christmas make for the pets! The tree and pet stamp and the sentiment are both from Scrolls Work and I’ve used a touch of watercolouring with distress inks to give the subtle colours.

When is Santa coming? 

So what time can I go to bed? 

Can I go to bed now? 


Tee Hee!

Have a wonderful Christmas Eve.
