The Elf Invasion Part 2

 Hello friends, 

I hope you are sipping something warm, cuddled up in a blanket enjoying a little peace before the Christmas crazy starts.  I can't believe how fast this month goes.  This year a little faster than others. What they say about babies is true... they keep you busy.   This is the first time in a long, long time that I didn't get my Christmas cards finished.   I just had a little too much on my plate this year.  I hope you all know that I love you and are thinking of you during this festive time.  I'm excited to catch up with you in the New Year and hear about your adventures.  Hugs and Merry Christmas to you all!

Here is batch two of the elf photos-  I'm glad they are headed back to the North Pole tonight! 

Is it a car ramp or a slide?

Time to make something sweet!  They baked cookies with Grandma!

They brought Ryan a hard 100 piece puzzle.  He sat down and worked on it until he finished it.  It took him about an hour.  He was determined to do it by himself. 

Swinging on the baby Swing!

Oh no!  The Milk has gone bad! They tied up the elves.

There is an elf imposter!  Which one is the fake elf?

Opps!  Who peed in the snow? I think Olaf looks guilty.
They are taking the dogs for a walk.  My favorite is goofy is in the sleigh helping bark orders. Haha!

Fantabulistic Pig


I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.  It is hard to believe that the holiday will be here in just a few short days.   This year wasn't totally normal, but at least it was a lot better than 2020.  

I always find coloring pigs to be a challenge.  It is hard to get the right shade of pink.  Sometimes they look too red.  I think I found a new favorite.  What do you think?  Did I get it right?   

Copics used:
Pink: RV34, RV32, RV10
Green: G46, G43, G40
Blue: B01, B00, B000

The Elf Invasion Part 1

 Hello all, 

Last year we adopted an elf to help brighten up the house during quarantine.  It was such a huge joy for Ryan that he came back this year.  He even brought  a friend to keep him company.  Ryan delights in waking up every morning to go look for the elves.   Below are some photos of the shenanigans that have taken place in our house. 

The cast of Toy Story came to play.  They saved our elf from the bubbling lava on the floor.   The fire trucks raced in to put out the hot embers.  

Time to Decorate the Tree
The Elves brought their own Christmas cereal to share with Ryan

The elves had a fun game of "Cooties" in the playroom. 

The naughty elves toilet papered our Christmas tree!  

Mrs. Claus sent some star Christmas cookies with the elves for us to enjoy.  They accidently wrapped themselves to the plate. 

Holidays are Merry


House Mouse are one of my favorite and I look forward to each release.  I inked this image up as soon as it arrived at my house.  Candy Canes make the perfect hair for a snowman.  Why didn't I think of that? 

Merry Christmas friends,

Snail Mail


This little snail is from Stampin Up.  He stole my heart the first time I saw him. I couldn't wait to ink him up.  I had an envelope background stamp from Neat and Tangled that I thought would pair perfectly with it.  I love how well they work together!

Check out these cute little foxes.   I chose to color the hat in Christmas colors, but I think next time I would use blues to make this a winter card.   Gosh they are sweet!
