FMS262 Ho Ho Ho

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Boy, this week is just whizzing by....way too fast, too!  Jen's cute FMS sketch caught my eye yesterday:

I had gotten this Jolly Friends set mostly for the Santa hats and accessories....I wasn't real keen on the elf and Santa faces, but I forced myself to stamp Santa and do some coloring:

Santa was stamped with Memento ink on heavy white cardstock and colored with an aquapainter and some Blushing Bride ink; then I added some Calypso Coral for his cheeks and a wee bit of Smoky Slate as a shadow on his beard.  I punched out his hat with some glimmer papers and mounted it all on a Mint Macaron DSP stitched circle.  The sentiment is from Oh What Fun; the striped piece is from Presents and Pinecones, along with a wee sliver of Cherry Cobbler.   I added a star near the sentiment as well as on the inside:

The holly jolly sentiment is from Stitched with Cheer; the holly is from Oh What Fun.  And I think this IS a fun card!

Tuesday was such a beautiful day...didn't feel like November at all!  After we voted, since Cassidy had no school, we played at the park next to our township building for almost two and a half hours! There were so many kids there, she had a really good time!  After we came home and had lunch, we played outside some more!  And acted silly:

Enjoy your day!
