A Cozy Christmas!

 Hello and thanks for stopping by. It's Christmas Day! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful day with your family. 

Wanted to share with you a little something I made my Mom for part of her Christmas present.

(click on picture to enlarge)

It started out going to be a card but decided to put it in a frame so that she could sit it out and enjoy it and continue to enjoy it years to come.

Placed a 2 inch circle on whisper white card stock for the moon and masked the bottom. I then sponged the sky with Soft Sky and Night of Navy Inks from Stampin Up.

Stamped the cabin with my new stamp set called A Cozy Christmas and then stamped the trees with another new stamp set called  Wonderland. Both from Stampin Up. I am Loving both of these stamp sets. So glad that I bought them.

I then added some stickles to the roof of the cabin and a little to the tree's. Added some yellow to the windows.I know you can't see it but I sprayed some glimmer mist to the snowy ground to make it sparkle a little and stamped a few snowflakes. 

I am so glad that I decided to put this in a frame.
I also thought I would go ahead a post some of the pictures I took of our Elf on a Shelf. His name is Ernie. This was the third year that he has visited us.

My Grandson Walker Loved seeing the Minion Bananas!

Walker called him Captain Ernie!

He was on a sled on the Tree with his hat stuffed in a Christmas Ball. The kids laughed at this.

I don't know If Ernie wants me sharing this private picture of him, He made his own comic strip magazine. Just glad he remembered to get the toilet paper.

I think he thought it was pretty funny to wrap himself up like a present.

Found him In the container that the bag of marshmallows were in.

  Ernie enjoyed hanging around seeing how good Walker and Scarlett was being.

And on the last day that Ernie was with us. We found him sitting In the tree. Showing us what the
true meaning of Christmas is.

 Ernie usually comes to visit us around 12 days till Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture every day. Santa came by last night and picked him up.  The kids are already missing him.  Wonder what silly things he will do on his next visit.

 Hope you enjoyed seeing my gift for my Mom and seeing some silly pictures of Ernie. Would Love for you to come by again.

 Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you!

 Happy Birthday Jesus!
