Christmas Dinner Invite

Sassy Dawn wanted us to use pink one last time for Breast Cancer Awareness and follow this sketch.                                                                   
Since our family has grown in numbers (and in size, tee he hee) we found it more and more difficult for everyone to get together at Christmas.  So each year we chose a weekend in December and have a Compton Family Christmas. My husband's brothers and sisters and their families all come to our house.  We have a BIG covered dish dinner and an ornament exchange.  We all have great fun reminiscing and catching up on all the children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews lives.   When I saw this Inspiration Sketch  I decided to combine their Christmas Cards with an invitation to the CFC.  I know that is sneaky, but you know me.....  

I used this Christmas Moose last year and thought it was so darling that I would use it again.  He is such an adorable bungling moose.  If you would like to have him for yourself click here and it will take you right to the spot so you can bring him home.  Color him and  link up here and maybe you will be the lucky winner this week.
