December Pin-Sights Challenge

Ellen kindly extended the December 2016 Pin-sights challenge ... oh! does she know us, or what?  I am as grateful for that as anyone ... especially because it gave me one more chance to use the 12 Days set in a fun little way. 

You've seen the Challenge mood board, right?  Here's another chance:

You won't have to go far to see where I found my inspiration ...  keep my silly sense of humor in mind, however.

Essentials by Ellen: 12 Days by Julie - Advent by Julie  
simple heat embossed, add a dab of Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry gold paint: voila!

Happy, indeed!  I must use that chicken again, very soon!

I LOVE how you played with this chicken stamp, Michele...such a fun card! Great idea to use touches of your gold paint, and I love how you added the fringe...so clever!

Happy New Year my friend! I am loving that mood board, and YOUR card!!! How fun are those chickens?!! And birds. lol Cute, cute, cute! Hope your new year is off to a good start. I am sitting here with no heat. Not sure if the furnace bit the dust (its over 60 years old!) or if something else is wrong. Son coming over in a bit to look at it, although I think it is time for a new furnace, I'm not looking forward to the bill! Would love it if it held on until Spring so I can have time to shop for the right furnace. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Hugs, Brenda

Delightfully fun!

Michelle said...

I think you and I have the same sense of humour, Michele, but you are much more creative in expressing it than me! This card makes me giggle so much, such fun!

A trio of beret-sporting chickens, two doves and a pear-toting partridge, all assembled to ring in the New Year...nothing short of ingenious! Too much fun! Oh...and I see fringe, as well! Another delight!

Hahahaha ... magnifique, Michele ... with three French poules in their snazzy gold berets (as well as their other avian friends), you just know I'm going to love this ... and giggle at it! Hugs, mon amie, Anita :)
