Sunday Song & Rhyme: Have yourself a merry little Christmas

In prickly green of Christmas wreaths
The holly berries glow,
The Christmas trees will sparkle soon,
With Christmas fruit bent low...
~Hannah G. Fernald, "Outside," 1906

Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is from Margaret

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Song by Sam Smith

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Your troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
Your troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who I dear to us
They gather near to us once more

Through the years
We'll always be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

So have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

I took my inspiration from the lines “Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the Yule-tide gay”

And what better way to make for a gay Christmas than with a fun image of a frog with a Santa cap?! I think I smiled the whole time I was coloring this image. So stinking cute!

I will be honest and say I am not realy happy with the coloring on my leaves but the darker green pen was a new on and I had some issues controlling the ink.
