Mo's Challenge #110

Elves, Fairies, Santa, or Snowmen!

 Happy Thanksgiving! My husband and I are having twenty family members and friends for dinner! We always have so much fun whenever we get together! It's a pretty relaxing day, too, even with all the cooking. We've been doing it for so many years that we don't stress over it. I'm responsible for six or seven pies (which I make ahead of time and freeze, unbaked, then cook early on Thanksgiving  morning), the stuffing, and gravy. My husband does most of the rest with a little help from me. He doesn't like to have anyone bring anything, either...guess he wants to make sure everything is to his liking. LOL!

 Pat has given us a lot to choose from for Mo's Challenge this week, and Mo has several images in every one of those categories...all of them adorable!

This is one of Mo's teen-aged fairies, and I think they are the sweetest little fairies ever!
I made the pink poinsettia using punched and embossed leaves and seed beads. The hat pin was made with a pearl-headed pin from WOC and various beads and jewelry findings. It's all held together with super glue.

Images: "Teen Fairy Pia" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Stamped sentiment from SU! set "Short and Sweet"

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Spica pens in gold and clear, Cuttlebug with Marianne swirl die and Nesties, MS Branch punch, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set, Tacky tape, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Pirouette Pink, Gable Green, and Glorious Green, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Hat pin, Seed Beads, Satin ribbon, Pearl cabochons, Jewelry findings, Ruffled lace trim

So, take some time after the big dinner and Black Friday sales and make a card or project using one of Mo's sweet images. You might even be chosen to win another one!  There are tons more that you want, aren't there?  LOL!

So good of you to visit!
