Holiday Happenings & a Card



So this has been a busy few days for us.  Last Thursday, DH surprised us with tickets to ICE!  It is a walk through display  on theme completely made from ice.  They bring in ice sculptors from around the world to create the entire display.  When you go in they give you an overcoat to put on over your coat as the temperature inside it between 6 and 9 degrees.  BRRRR!  In this pictures the background is completely sculptured from ice.  There is also an ice slide...fun :)  





Yesterday we had our annual holiday open house...40+ people.  No gingerbread house building this year, but still a fun night for all.  I think a chocolate fountain is always a hit with the kids;)

Today I have a few presents to finish up, wrapping to do, and a little bit more cleaning up from yesterday; but before I go I want to share a card...

I love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.  As I started creating the card a song came to mind and had me giggling the whole time I was creating....Can you guess what song?  I will tell you at the end :)

Here's the Details:
Image - Little Elf Fin for Mo's Digital Pencil; colored with Prisma pencils and accented with Polar White Flower soft on his fur bits, gold and holly red Stickles 
Sentiment -   CTMH Special Occasion mini stamps
Papers -   Red & green glitter from my scrap basket, Reminisce Christmas Stripe
Extras - square crystal rhinestones, silver trimmed ribbon, scalloped edge punch, tag cut from CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

Now...the song....Wrecking Ball by Miley.  So, he is my Christmas wrecking ball.

Thanks for looking!  Take time to slow down and enjoy a little!
