Stocking Teddy

     Wow, only four days until Christmas!  This year really has just flown by hasn't it.  Are you done with your shopping?  Is the tree trimmed and Christmas dinner planned?  I still have a few little things left to buy but actually managed to slow down enough this year to just enjoy.
     I do have a little tag to share with you today using Whimsy and Stars Studio's "Stocking Teddy".  He was a freebie with purchase during our last blog hop.  I hadn't used my Prismas in ages so I got them out along with some kraft paper and colored this little guy up.  I'm not so good with my pencils but if you want to see someone who is check out my friend Jane at Box of Colours with projects like this one.
     I'm not quite sure if he's a prezzie or if he's hiding out trying to catch Santa coming down the chimney.  ☺
     Hope you enjoyed my posts this week.  Things are going to be pretty quiet here on my blog for the rest of the year.  Just a couple more posts and then 2013 here we come!  I'll have an official Merry Christmas post next week, but if for some reason some of you might not make it back around then I'll go ahead and wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  May your day be blessed with the love and joy of family and friends.
     I'd like to enter this little guy in a few challenges:
