Pickle Christmas card

Christmas card, featuring Drawn by Krista's Christmas Pickle digital stamp, by Paperesse.

I'm continuing last year's quest for unusual, humorous Christmas cards. This one features an image from Drawn by Krista – Christmas Pickle. It's in the same vein as my Gluten Free Santa card.

Isn't the sentiment (created with Candy Round BTN font) just too hilarious? It cracks me up. It's so clever I wish I could take credit for it, but alas, no, I've seen it on several sites. I'd give recognition to whoever the smarty pants was that came up with it if I could, but I don't know who to attribute it to. I'll just be honest and admit it wasn't me.

Paper and paper ribbon (yep, that's digital, too) are from my scraps folder. You might recognize them from this 2017 Christmas card. Embellishments are a wooden snowflake and button.
