This is Crissy's Dino Day! Whimsy Release

Hi Ladies! (and gents of course).  Well it's not always what it looks like right?  This looks like a greeting card with a cutsie tootsi Dino messing up or straightening out some gorgeous red lights while balancing his hunny's favorite tree topper on his nose!  But in fact this is an ornament for someone's favorite Christmas tree!  I'll show you later down in the post.
