Jingle All The Way!

Hi There!

I'm taking a few days off for the Thanksgiving holiday so I'm here now to share a couple of creations before the challenges close.

As prolly most of you know, Tracey McNeely holds an annual "25 Days of Christmas Tags" event at her fantastic blog, In My Creative Opinion. Tons of stampers and crafters (even whole design teams) join in and there are lots of wonderful companies sponsoring prizes for the partipants!

I'm pickled tink to be finally joining in with a Christmas tag today. Since I have more than enough schtuff and such on Mt. NBUS, I'm entering just for fun to support my friend before the festagities are over for another year.

Why did it take me so long to join in, you ask. Well, first, take a look at my tag:
 
I ordered my outfit in August to prepare for Tracey's 2014 tag event. AUGUST! The leotard and the jumper finally arrived two weeks ago, but the belt and one elf shoe were missing. For heaven's sake! I spent I don't know how many hours on the phone getting to the bottom of it before I traced it to a feed store in Franklin, South Potato. You can imagine my relief when the Fed Ex box arrived with the missing pieces!

I immediately got dressed and the Mister agreed to take my picture. Now I don't know how your mister is with a camera, but I've watched spiders build entire villages waiting for mine to get ready to press the button. I know it looks like I'm being a tart and asking him if he wants to play some reindeer games, but just between you and me, that's NOT what I'm saying! God bless him.

And did you notice all the jingle bells adorning my rockin' bod? Three pairs of them! Well, I made so much noise stomping back into the house that every stray cat in the neighborhood is now in our backyard thinking they heard a dinner bell!

The NBUS bookmark/tag is "Stitched Bookmark Collection Die" from Papertrey Ink. The image and sediment are also NBUS, made by Art Impressions.

So there you have it, Tracey! That's how much I love you! Your event is always fun and it's a delight watching the entire community support you!
I'm also linking to Tag You're It! and with the "Christmas Elves" challenge happening at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge.

~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~

Next, I made this CAS card with jingle bell garlands:
The wavy garlands are cut from snippets of glitter paper using a NBUS Memory Box die called "Jingle Bell Border." The sediment is also NBUS from the Avery Elle set "Winter Wreath." Everything in this post is NBUS and this one is QACAS, to boot!

I am entering:
  • Less Is More challenge. (Next week will be week #200!) The theme this week is "Jingle All The Way!"
  • Fusion Card Challenge, where I chose the silver and red photo inspiration.
  • The Cutting Edge Challenge. I'm sad to read that this will be the last challenge for them! Thank you, Jackie, and all the Design Team members and Guest Designers for your hard work!
  • Pixie's Snippets Playground, where all you have to do is use scraps on your card.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is my favorite holiday meal! Old-fashioned oven-roasted turkey (yes, in spite of my work history!) with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and lots of yummy side dishes. 
We are supposed to have a beautiful warm day here tomorrow, which will add to the joy of having friends and family gather in this house as we've done every year since 1977!

Best of all, afterwards everyone will go home except for the twins! We get to play with them for a couple more days and I'm looking forward to them helping me decorate the Christmas tree!

I wish all my American friends and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving! And I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL of you again for your continued support and encouragement, no matter where you are in the world. You keep me keepin' on and I count each of you among my many blessings!

~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS!* 

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

Oh Darnell, I LOVE your outfit. It was worth the wait! So fabulous even if the Mister did take too long to take the picture. Your Thanksgiving sounds perfect in my book. We'll have 36 here tomorrow! Need to get cleaning/cooking but blog surfing is much more fun!

Petra Swart said...

Oh my, Darnell, visiting your blog is far better than having any 'Try to make you feel better' tonic!!!!! What a lovely post, again, and I do love your hilarious tag!!!! I do love your hairdo!!!! And shame for the poor cats thinking it's dinner time and then arriving at an empty bowl!!!! So glad the people in South Potato could have your ready in time for the photo shoot!!!!

Have a super day and happy Thanks giving - we're not having Thanksgiving here, but I do have to set back the scale 10 pounds back, too!!!! (and X-mas is still coming!!!!)

That is a fabulous border. Gosh you people really enable me and I have enough NBUS!!! lol I love Thanksgiving too, my favorite holiday! Not stress and good food, who could ask for more. I wish we had your weather, it is snow like the dickens outside my window right now. Almost a white out! Laying pretty good too and can you believe that on Monday it was in the low 70's?! Yep, it was! We are supposed to get back into the 50's this weekend. The snow is very wet and heavy so it should melt pretty easy. Happy Thanksgiving Auntie! Have fun with the twins decorating the tree!!!! Hugs, Brenda

Brenda in IN said...

It sounds like hubby really jingled your bells while trying to take the picture! The outfit is great for Christmas but somehow I never pictured you a leotard person! I think South Potato is more interested in feed than speed. It is a cute tag and I love the sparkly bell card too. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and how nice the twins get to stay and visit for a while.

Sheri said...

The jingle bell card is so fun but the other one made me spit coffee across the room! Too funny! I love it! Enjoy your Thanksgiving and show us some pictures of the twins!

Geri said...

You make me laugh out loud girlfriend! I giggled when I saw the tag. I howled when I read your post! Yep, sent the cats scurrying for cover once again! Reindeer games eh? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge ...

Love the jingle bell garlands! So pretty cut from the sparkly paper! The sediment font is incredible - definitely a 'must have'!

frommycraftroom said...

Fab card and tag and more fabulous story to go along. It is a pleasure to visit your blog. Thank you.

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

The tag is hilarious . . . LOVE that card too Darnell! Hazel xx

Bonnie said...

Well, jingle my bells! This bookmark would entice one to open the book just for a laugh! And the rows of jingle bells make a perfect QACAS! Enjoy your family. I consider you one of my blessings too.

Judy Woodland said...

You tag is adorable - LOVE it! What stamp is that? I NEED one!!

Pat said...

This reindeer lady is so funny and the jingle bells, sunglasses and the cute turned up toes just made me laugh! The jingle bells border used three times across the second card is lovely in the glitter card, and a great sentiment too. Have a lovely Thanksgiving and enjoy your turkey and have fun with the twins after too. Your blog is always a breath of fresh air and we would certainly miss your neat turn of phrase. x

Barb Ghig said...

You are such a riot, Darnell! And that rockin' bod of yours is just fabulous! I LOVE your tag, and I can think of about 10 dear friends who would love to receive something like it, too! Tracey puts so much work into her 'Christmas Tag Series', and I'm sure she is going to appreciate your efforts to play along!
I also love your CAS card! So much beautiful sparkle on those bells, and I love how you placed them on an angle!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving with a safe and fun-filled Black Friday :) Hugs to you, Barb

Happy Thanksgiving Darnell - and thank you so much for bringing such fun and laughter to our day! My Mister comes in to share your posts, they are such a hoot! Love your tag and the hilarious story you gave of the trials of bringing it to completion - you are a dedicated stamper, no doubt about you!
Thanksgiving is a holiday we would happily import to Australia - it seems such a wonderful time of celebration of family and gratitude. Blessings to you and yours - hugs, Ann

Sybrina K said...

Hi, Darnell.

That tag is really fun, but I'm in love with your garland card! Love those glittery garlands. :)

Thanks so much for your kind words... and for joining as a follower. Your support and friendship this past year have been much appreciated.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving celebration and enjoy the extra time with the twins. :)

Sandy Dehon said...

I love clean and simple cards. Sometimes I think it is harder to make a clean and simple card than it is to over decorate!
Anytime you want to play some reindeer games just let me know!!! will bring the snow.
Happy Thanksgiving -
Sandy xx

Hi Darnell,


It sounds like your Thanksgiving is perfect! 1977 is the year I graduated from Tracy High School - so I know how many years your tradition has been going on. And oh my, how OLD I am....

Thank you for visiting me. I've been thinking about you; must have had some of the vibes in the air!

Your tag looks great and I must say, YOU look quite sassy!

Hugs,
Kay

Shona Chambers said...

Maybe it was all the waiting for the photo to be taken.....Brilliant tag and I'm sure Tracey will love it. I've really enjoyed her 25 days and I'm sad its over. Will have to go back over all the posts to remind myself of all the inspiration!! Hope your having a very indulgent Thanksgiving and enjoy the boys!!

Lucky Mister getting to take THAT photo! Strings of sparkly red and silver jingle bells ... yum, yum, yum! Hugs, Anita :)

MaryH said...

Well, it took me a while to get back over for my Darnell-spate of laughter, but it was most worth the wait! Oh I like your tart tag!!! That eye surgery looks very successful, and I love the cat eye glasses with your outfit too. Classy striped sox and those elf shoes, well, just gotta get adorable, and loved the photo me some of that! This is session story too. The jingle bells card is likewise cute as can be-especially with the trio slanted as you placed them. Love that die (plan to use it if it will allow itself to be found, on a card tomorrow, so thnx for that idea!) As always, I leave here, with a smile and a big enjoyment of some wonderful artistry at work. Large hugs & TFS.
