Happy Sunday. I'm trying to finish up some UFO's and the positive side to that is I'll have some Christmas cards ready. Also need to start on Fall & Halloween cards. Have gotten DH to agree to help with the Halloween efforts as that's _his_ holiday.

In the meantime, here's today's card:

- SU stamped image, colored with copics. Added some Glossy Accents to his black cap & the holly berries. S/B dies for image & red mat (from 6x6 Authentique Festive collection). Diecut scrap paper for a circle mask in order to overstamp script stamp in Memento London Fog (and keep it off the white part of the main image).

- banner was a snippet from the reverse of some other paper I used recently, embossed with C/B music folder, sponged a bit of London Fog over the embossing.

- 6x6 green check background from Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather. This pack is from years ago. I still like the paper too.

- sentiment stamped with SU rose red, clear EP, punched with McGill punch from white snippet, red mat snippet punched with a matching but larger EK Success punch. Red rhinestone added for some bling.

I recorded & watched Tootsie with Dustin Hoffman the other evening. A real oldie, but oh, did it make me laugh. I think that is probably the best movie this actor ever made (and yes I know he made a lot of good movies..but I like THIS one best!). If you've never watched it, give it a try if you like comedy. In the meantime, enjoy whatever you are doing today, and come back when you can. Hugs


  1. I love all your cards with birds and this is no exception! So pretty and just perfect for the holidays. Love the banner on here.

  2. The bird is beautiful and I love the way you created the banner, it really sets off the bird and frame so well. I have not watched Tootsie for years - he did play a great part in it. Hugs, Anne x
