Fox- Have yourself a merry little Christmas

I colored this adorable image from Gerda Steiner which is the monthly stamp.  Originally I was going to do it as a general card, but then I remembered that I had these great papers from TLC so decided to make it into a Christmas card.  I added some snow crystals on the grass.  I have a wooded back yard and there are nights when I come home late from work that I happen to see a red fox running in the neighborhood.  Which I find so amazing since I grew up in a rural community and now I live in a suburban territory a few miles north of the capital.

  3. Cute little fox, I think foxes are more common in cities now than in the country. We do occasionally see one trotting across the field at the back of our house though at dusk, he must cut across the yard as well, 'cos he leaves a calling card on occasion, yuk.
    Sorry back to business, he looks right at home in the forest here, thanks for sharing at Cardz4Guyz. :)
