Gone Fishin' for Christmas!!

Happy December 15th everyone!! Ten more days to go until the "big guy" comes and visits--seems like December has flown by, lol! Hope you all got some of your to-do list done this weekend--I checked off a few things but my list doesn't appear to be any shorter, LOL!!

Here are your random numbers:

Katarina of Kama Design

Congrats Katarina on winning--email me your address and I will get the goodies out to you this week! Thanks everyone for playing!!

We went and decorated our Gingerbread Houses (see slide show for pictures-click to make larger too) at our Club for the very first time! To be honest w/ ya though, I do not like "messes" and to have icing everywhere and drying on my hands~ICKY, not my thing. I also don't like alot of sugar, it literally makes me gag, so to see all the candies laid out & gobs of icing was almost too much for my stomach. But the kids loved it and had a blast so that was TOTALLY worth it to me :o) They are now recovering from their "sugar high" cuz' I couldn't tell ya how much they ate, but it was probably more than they have had in a whole year!

And now in a totally unrelated project, LOL, here is my lil' fishin' fella! I will have more Xmas projects this week, but I needed a break from all things Christmas for a bit! This lil' guy reminds me of my son and one of his favorite pasttimes--fishing! This stamp set "Look What I Caught" from SUINK is just the cutest & comes with lots of stamps to make different scenes (I used 4 stamps). He's colored w/ Copics and then I cut his hat & cattails out and attached them separately. The sky was done by sponging ink w/ a makeup sponge over a scalloped circle cut-out and the water has stickles on it for shimmer. The dp is by SU and I love these patterns for masculine cards. Just a fun lil' card that my son can send his Pop-Pop or Great Uncle (who share his love of fishing)! I also entered this in this past week's SCS "Ways to Use It" WT196 which was half-baked or stampin' only part of an image & imagining what the other end is. Mine would be his fishing line and you can "imagine" the fish or bobble buoy on the other end, LOL!

    I adore your fishing guy! It's nice to see something that reminds me there are people still fishing in Decmeber and not ice fishing like here in Maine! I love these colors. Perfect for this little man!

  3. The Gingerbread houses look adorable! Your pics are so fun! I agree with you I don't like the icky frosting hands either! My least favorite part of making christmas cookies!
