Oh We Are Merry! FMS 101



It's a bit early for me to be thinking Christmas right now but when this delightful single stamp arrived this week I had to use it!  But it has been a very merry week around here starting with a two cake anniversary gathering for me and my husband and ending with a trip to the county fair where Emma got her first taste of fried dough, french fries and vinegar and soft swirled ice cream!  Hey I didn't say it was a healthy week - just a merry one!

Here's Emma tasting that ice cream cone.....and you also get a sneak peek of me and my new all natural gray hair!






               I am hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches - hope you join us!

Linda, what a fantastic card! I loooooooove it- I just love crumb cake card bases, you set off the tag so wonderfully. And, I love your hair- I can't wait to go all naturale- my wonderful mom gave all three of her kids gray in our mid twenties!

Hi Linda,
What a fabulous card, LOVE the crumb cake and I'm totally jazzed with your tag.
I'm another who will go au naturale one of these days but my husband keeps saying, "Not yet..." You look great!
Just had to let you know I sent my two unfinished village houses to the bin but I'm enjoying the one that is finished. It sits on my shelf with the rolls of washi tape so it's not lonely, lol!

Love the card, Linda! The font on that stamp is fantastic, and I love the placement of the candy dots. The new hairdo looks great too. I love seeing a baby's reaction to tasting ice cream for the first time -- priceless!

I love that huge Be Merry stamp and the way you layered it on the tags. And the washi tape is perfect! And it may not have been healthy but it sounds like my kind of week! Yum!
