This year a lot of stamp companies have used plays on words for their Christmas stamps. I see you did it too and I like it. I'm not a big fan of pug dogs but this one is cute. My niece got the cutest dog this year. It's a malti-sue. It's a malaise and a shitsu.I would buy a stamp for her with that adorable dog on it. I like the fireplace too. What a nice card for a dog lover.
