Lily's Christmas Surprise

My coworker ordered a traditional Christmas card for her mother. I let her choose the images and she liked Lily in her winter coat the best. Her mom has a dachshund and since you can only see the little elf dog's head and paws, it's good enough to be a dachshund. ;) I have the worst time trying to get blonde hair to look right so I went to Marianne Walker's blonde hair tutorial and voilà. I never would've tried to use the two colours she recommended but it looks great! My girls will no longer have neon yellow hair unless of course I want them to. LOL
