Pictures & Elzybells!

We had our first holiday party this past Sunday. Every year my Dad and Step-mom host a huge Christmas party. We eat, drink, and Santa comes to hand out presents. This is my hubby and I. Can you tell how short I am in this picture? (He is 6' 4 inches and I am 5' 4 inches!)
Here is my cutie pie son. Check out those adorable dimples!
Cortney was fascinated by Santa! She loved to sing Jingle Bells and Rudolph.

Here are all the cousins! Do you notice the little guy all the way to the right? Is his face priceless or what? If looks could kill..... He is quite a character!

And last but not least is my Pug, Bruno. He is an "only" dog now that Molly is gone.


I just bought a bunch of these Elzybells cards. I love this little mouse! I colored him in with my Copics. I added liquid applique to the branches and crystal glaze to the ornament. Click on it for a close up! I cut the red paper with my scalloped spellbinders. The card base was already pattered and is made with Die Cuts With a View. I added some green SU! paper and vellum. Last but not least I attached some ghost snowflakes from Heidi Swapp with brads.
Thanks for visiting me today! Love hearing from you!

Beautiful family Michele! And no, I would have never guessed your hubby was 6'4, but I can see he's bending over at the waist to make himself not look as tall. Thanks for sharing the pics, you have gorgeous children, and the puppy's cute too!

Hugs,
Amy

Oh, I love family pictures so much!!! You guys all look like you had fun, and I still think you look like a kid. Not like a mother of two kids who are so big!! I love the card, too. Those Elzybells are calling my name, dang it!
