CR84FN #66 ~ Very Merry!

Hi there and a happy Monday to you! I hope you all enjoyed a pleasant weekend. I spent a few hours Sunday getting down with my cooking self while listening to a Michael Buble' CD!! I have a made from scratch chicken pot pie recipe that my family loves, so I put together several of those and took some over to the kids. Our sweeter than sweetest daughter-in-law is under the weather. Thought some comfort food would help. And as a thank you to my hubs for the painting job last week I made him his favorite apple pie! So today I gave myself some crafty time. This one is for the CR84FN challenge using gray, tan and cream.


All of my stamps and die cuts are Papertrey Ink. I went with the teeny sentiment on my tiny tag since I used a My Mind's Eye paper with a Christmas text pattern. A few pewtery gray gems for a bit of wintery sparkle and a snippet of a square lace doily to echo my lacy snowflakes and the lace in the inspiration photo.

 That just about does it today. Can you believe this is my 300th post! Have I had that much to say LOL!!! Thanks so much for popping in ~Lisa

This is absolutely beautiful Lisa! I love the sweet bird and fancy side border.

I LOVE Michael Buble and all the old Jazz singers. He fits in so well with my old jazz station on my Pandora channel. ;)

So sweet of you to make that for your DIL. I know she appreciated that.
