Christmas Card Using Aurora Wings Yorkie In A Stocking

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  Hasn't this weather been crazy across the US?  I am not sure about the weather in other countries; but our US weather is worse than normal.  I also heard that Alaska had a major earthquake; but haven't heard the damage yet.  

I am a little late in getting my Christmas cards done and may not get them all done in time.  I did finish this cutie today and wanted to get it posted in the current challenge before it ends.  I created this cutie for my friend Katie.  She has a new little Yorkie named Leilani and she is the cutest little dog I have ever seen.  This one has charmed me for sure.  I tried to color her based on a few pictures I received when Katie first brought her home.  They change so quickly; just like a child.  I just got another picture of her today and she doesn't look like this now.  She has more brown than black.  

This is PNG version; but there is also a JPG version.
I purchase all PNG versions; just in case I need to add them to digital paper.
