Gift giving

I heard that moan -- HOW can anyone possibly be thinking of Christmas, when summer hasn't arrived yet . . . well, I know there are those that work on their Christmas cards all year long, as noted by a number of Christmas challenges.   So, I decided to give it a whirl, just for a change of pace -- you know, kind of shake things up a bit !!
This is a Wild Rose Studio stamp and isn't this elephant adorably sweet - plus he brings gifts.
