Card- Holiday delights

Well hello! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days! I was so busy last week, getting submissions ready for some card calls, that I was just a little tired afterward! I did receive an email from CARDS for an acceptance on one of my cards! So Yeah, all the hard work paid off! It stinks when it doesn't though! :) I did make a few cards with my American Craft goodies that I won from Moxie Fab Blog! I think I will make some more and give them to someone for a Christmas card set or something. I think I will stamp a Merry Christmas sentiment in the inside. Ok, here's the card....And this is how my morning started! It is Homecoming week at the school, and they dress up in different themes each day! Well today is Decade day, 50's, 60's, & 70's! You can't tell from the pictures, but Chace is very shy and reserved around people, so for him to want to dress up, is BIG! He wanted to wear a afro, and he wanted a pick in it! Well I found the afro at WalMart and it came with a pick! :) I wish we would have had a white John Travolta suit, but we don't! :) So we went a collared shirt, unbuttoned some so you can see his undershirt. I couldn't resit, I had to make him some chest hair! I have laughed all morning, looking at him with those glasses on! He has been walking around posing and doing the "Stayin' Alive Dance"!
