Day 9 of Christmas

What do ya mean ghosts can't be elves?? Our challenge from Simply Betty Stamps is to use one of the digis to represent the Ghosts of Christmas past. I think Elfin' Miller is a little upset that Santa doesn't need a ghostly elf this year. I left Miller's face white to make him look more ghostly, everything else was colored with Copic markers. Papers are DCWV and the ric rak is from the stash. I have been using lost of things from my stash lately, they are showing up like embellishments from shopping trips past! Since I have been working on moving my craft space, I have found tons of stuff that I bought and never used so I am working on either using it or giving it away. I have a friend that teaches kindergarden that loves getting boxes of craft stuff to use in her class. 

Guess what?? It snowed!! I am like a kid when I see snow. It is pretty rare for us to get very much of it here in Tennessee and even rarer to get it this early in the year. Unless something changes overnight, I think I will be staying home tomorrow. After my spill earlier this year in my driveway, I think it is better for all if I stay inside when there is any potential for ice!

We have plenty of snow we can lend you if you don't have enough! We have at least 16 inches and are supposed to get at least three more tonight, so there is no lack of white stuff here. Great ghostly look leaving the face white, that was clever, I think it works for a ghost!

That's usually my expression around the holidays after dealing with the crowds and constand holiday music :-) The card is cute and colorful.

This is so cute, see and I was thinking that maybe he was worried about his pants falling down, since he doesn't have a belly like Santa. Cute card!
