Cute! Another great digi!
http://pixieduststudiopixiechallenge.blogspot.com/ the challenge was to use 3 patterned papers...I actually used 4! The image is from Pixie Dust, "U is for Under the Mistletoe". I colored it with my pencils. I added stickles to the mistletoe berries, Crystal Effects to the eyes, beaks & feet; and a few miscellaneous embellishments from my scrap basket. I made it an easel card so DH can put on his office shelf. I love it! The digi is just so cute, I couldn't go wrong!

so I had a little free crafting time this weekend and I decided I wanted to create ATC's for two of my fellow divas. One of my divas had posted a picture of an ATC she made for me of Keith Urban...my absolute favorite artist, so that was my inspiration. I went to her profile on FB and read through her favorites & interests....Elvis...perfect. Now which Elvis...I decided to do two...young and Hawaiian. Here is what I came up with...

I made several different variations of this ornament, but this is the one I am going with.
First I printed the gingerbread image & colored it. Then I took the glass ball, added some "snow", glitter and star shaped sequins. I then attached a neutral colored thread to the back of the image, inserted it into the clear glass ball and arranged it the way I wanted it. I the added a fluffy bow. I am going to make some takes to hang on the side that will read, "From our house to yours. the Franklins ~ 2011" I think these will be a nice keepsake for those who have attended all our open houses....hopefully one the neighbors will carry on the tradition we have started once we are gone.
Now, on to cards and our annual letter.
