Challenge 173 - Leftovers.

What does that bring to ind for you?
Turkey?  Stuffing sandwiches?
All good things.
If you have some in your fridge. 
I do not.
My fridge is empty, I have been away for a week.
So I had to make a leftover man
What do ya think?
His name is Darryl.
Darryl does not have a job, 
but he assures me he has one waiting for him just around the corner.
Right.

Maybe turkey and cranberries would have been better.

At any rate, I hope you check out our fun challenge at


See you there!

I hope you are all enjoying the start of winter in your part of the world.
I 'm about 8 hours from home and it's much warmer here
than at my place.  In fact, it may even be above zero!

Mandarin Orange Monday #72

Obviously, I did not take this recently.
Sure as heck not here in Canada.
It's a shot from a trip we took through Pennsylvania years ago.
I thought it was hilarious, the buggy in front of a McDonalds.
I wonder if they ordered a Big Mac?

( And I had to make it at least a bit Christmassy )

At any rate, it's for

Check it out.
And have a funny day.

Circles, Circles Everywhere

Challenge 172 at The Order of the Opus Gluei
is
CIRCLES!
That gives us a myriad of possibilities, my friends.
I used elements by Amada Sok, Angie Briggs, 
Cajoline, Kim Klassen, Sydee Nuckels, Natali, and Tasha

You have until the end of December 28th to circle your
way to a holiday creation.
Well, actually you could make something that has nothing to do with Christmas.  
Maybe Halloween, or picnics, what about a puppy?
The thing is, we love whatever you create with us.
Be sure to check out the creations of the other DT members:

We'll see you there!

Snowman

This is for this week's

I used a Gecko Galz image and some washi tape
I had in my stash.
I think it's from Michaels.

The background is kind of funky:
 It's a mixture of Rock Candy distress stickles, 
white paint and white embossing powder.

Make sure you check out
 
I like it.

It's fairly new and it's wonderful!

Thanks for coming by!

Winter Wildlife for


Two nights ago I was out on a country road
and came across a Momma Moose with two little moose.
(mooses, Meese???)
It's been in the low minus 30's this week and they were in deep snow, looking pretty happy.
(as happy as a moose can look)
I wondered to myself,
"Self, what are moose for?"
They kind of look like all the leftovers parts that Creator had after he made all the animals.
And He smooshed them all together.
Tada!  
A Moose!

This is NOT a moose:
It's much prettier than a moose.

(credits:  Maya de Groot, Studio Rosey Posey, Emeto Designs, Joanne Brisbois, and Cajoline)

Having said that, 
I wrote a poem to accompany my piece:
 OK, I didn't actually write it.
I stole it.
But it works.

Stay warm, see you at

Oh!  Yeah!
I don't know what moose are for.
But I like them.

You might even see a moose over there.

All Bundled Up

for
Did you know in Canada we buy our childrens' Hal;loweens costumes
big enough so that they can fit over their
snowsuit?

True story.

Today it was minus 39 with the windchill when I went to work.  A couple of hours later, 
I was putting gas in the truck and realized 
I didn't have my coast done up, nor a hat, nor mitts.  
The wind had stopped.
And it was positively balmy!
Minus 24.

Welcome to Canada, sissies.
lolol

Just Because

All elements by Sissy Sparrows

Two

The theme for one of my favorite challenges this week is
TWO
And the artists at
have invited us to have fun with it.
Normally, I do have fun with my art, and I would have fun with this, but
it's been a very difficult week.
My daughter's father was killed by a drunk drive a few days ago, 
and the pain has been immeasurable for so many of us.
I created this LO in honour of him and our beautiful daughter
and there was no joy in creating this, believe me.
But it's worth sharing, I think.
I am going to ask you to please take a moment to watch this news report
and to please,
think long and hard before you ever
get into a vehicle after having a drink.

The consequences can be unimaginable.

Thank you for looking and helping me
say Goodbye to John.

Challenge #171 - BRRrring it on!

Is it cold in your neck of the woods?
Does it even GET cold in your neck of the woods?
Well, no mind, I'm sure it's going to be Christmas where you are.

In honour of winter and all things chilly, such as
 
 Snow, ice, blizzards, polar bears, penguins... 

Poobah Jana at
has challenged us create something wonderful with
exactly that in mind.
This is a clear card, and I was struggling to find a way to show you that.
Does that help?

I want to say that my dear friend Carol, 
was the original artist for this card.
 

You have until the end of
Saturday, December 14th to join in with
your Chilly creation.

We'll see you there!

(Wear your mittens.)

Jingle Belles Thanks

I can't believe the end of our
is over for 2013.
That doesn't seem fair, does it to you?
I mean, I SUPPOSE the belles have lives of their own and all that,
and I SUPPOSE they would like to live them,
especially at the holiday season, but I mean,
C'Mon.
What about us bellettes?
Oh well.
Sigh.
They are the best, you know.
In fact, they rock.
And I certainly want them to know how much 
I appreciate all they do for us in
inspiring us to create our cards throughout the year.
Really.
Thank you Belles.
You rock.

Now I have to go address these puppies.
At least they are all made.
:-)))

Merry Christmas Belles.
And thank you.
