Gooooood Monday morning to you! I hope some of you are off work today – perhaps taking a long week for Thanksgiving?

If you look at the colored image for the stamp I’m using today on the Stamping Bella site (HERE), you might not, like me, grasp that it’s a kid on a dog. I thought it was a chubby santa on…well a grey funky reindeer. LOL. I neeeeeded to buy it and color it anyway – and as I started the coloring and the image began telling me its “story,” well….I was fully sold. Little Louis has taken the day off school, and is pretending his dog is a reindeer….though I’m not certain what dog in their right mind would let a little kiddo like this hop on his back! Ha! And since Louis isn’t wearing a coat, I “asked” him if he was inside or outside…and it’s a warmish melting-snow kind of day.

The little “shanty” house is from the Art Impressions watercolor collection – perfect little size for this scene! If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch it on YouTube in HD.

So now that I’ve outed myself about talking to stamps and getting a story from them….do you talk to yours? Or is it just me?
