Splat! @ Meljen's Designs.

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday!!  This is the second week of school for the kids. It is so good to have them back in school and having them getting back into a routine other than the teenage sleep routine! Bailey went out this past weekend and got gear for Lacrosse. She will start practicing on the 18th. She seems excited! She REALLY wants to be a part of a team sport and I think its great! I wish she would have made the Volleyball team, but she didn't... so we move on to the next thing. She can always try again next year. Michael seems to be settling in... I just have to watch him and see how it goes this year. And Kevin... I think he is enjoying the peace and quiet again LOL!!  Poor guy... he went all his life without kids until he met me. I know it has to be a hard adjustment! And the poor thing had to come into a household of teenagers!

Okay... enough about us LOL I spent last weekend getting cards done! I finished eight (8) in a weekend! That is a record for me LOL!!! I was so excited! I got a bit ahead again... I'm hoping I can keep it that way and get a little further ahead!  So, here is my creation for Challenge #223 at Meljen's Designs; Splat! (use paint, ink spray or mist).








The image is Little Elf's Cookie, which you can find at the Meljen's Designs Shop. I'm really trying hard to use some of my stash up! The papers are all scraps from last years Christmas papers. From my stash of old stuff LOL  I have used a rubon, the "dear Santa,", the Christmas lights sticker from Jolee's I think... That was one that was already open.  The little gingerbread boy on the inside..  I have no idea where or when I got that. It was in one of my baskets of supplies at the bottom LOL I spritzed this card with white and green paint. I added the red netting around the edge and added white glitter to the white parts of his outfit and the embossed snowflakes. I did decoupage him a bit of course.. I popped his one leg, his foot and his hands and the gingerbread cookie he is eating. And I think that is it! Oh! I did color him with Copic Markers. And one more Christmas card down :)  I think I've done alright this year with Christmas cards.. way better than I normally do LOL

Love what you did with your SPLAT! The texture and appearance of a snowstorm... [except the green of course!] I love the string of lights, your 3D image and the surprisingly interesting element of the netting!
