MM222, and Fusion Joy


Happy Friday, everyone!  Yay, it's the end of the week and the countdown to Thanksgiving begins!  There are just so many fun Christmas challenges out in the blog world, I am taking advantage of as many as I can!  I haven't played with Fusion for a long time, and the Merry Monday color challenge was just too cute to pass up:


I sort of combined all three challenges for my card today; it features an older, and sadly retired, Elzy Bells image:


I just love this little girl and her wee little bird....I stamped them in Stazon on heavy white cardstock and used my aquapainter and inks to color them in.  I diecut the smaller circle with SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits, and the larger one, in Silver Foil, with a Lil'Inker Stitched Circle die:



Of course I added some glitter snow!  And I used Papertrey's small alphabet to cut the "j" and "y" from Smoky Slate cardstock, and a Taylored Expressions snowflake in Silver Foil:


I am still on the fence about the washi tape behind the sentiment, but it's one of those things....once I've got those letters glued on, it is what it is!!!

We had a large crowd at our house Wednesday..my niece Jessie, who lives in SC, accepted a job in Seattle with Amazon!  How exciting!  She wanted to see all her cousins on her mom's side (my sister Gail) so they flew up and we had a big party!  There were 20 adults and 4 children....that's a lot of folks for my wee little house!   Here she is with my sister Joyce and Joyce's grandson Jamison:


And I can't believe that is the only picture we got of her all night!  It was rather noisy and chaotic!  I did snap this one earlier of my other niece Kelly (Joyce's daughter and Jamison's aunt) and Cassidy, trying to entertain Jamison....who already knows how to turn on his aunt's phone AND swipe at it to make the icons appear....these kids are too smart nowadays!!


And yes, Jamison has a wee bit of a shiner....he and a chair had a battle and the chair won!

Have a wonderful day!

  7. Love this LeAnne, that little girl stamp is adorable! I like the letters over the washi tape too - it's quite different but I think it works, especially with the snowflake 'o'. Sounds like a fun party this week - always nice to fill your house with happy faces I'm sure.
