Merry!

Merry! by judkajudy

This sweetie is one of the images from the Penny Black Transparent set Love at Christmas. She is probably lighting the way for Santa!

I used Copics to color the image and stitched the matting together. There's some glitter glue and sequins for some sparkle. And "merry" has been cut with Penny Black's Creative die Love and Joy.

We will be traveling to Georgia this weekend. First to Hawkinsville, Georgia to be present when my grand nephew Michael receives the key to the new home built for him by Homes for Heroes. You may remember that Michael was a Marine and lost his legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.

From there we travel to Atlanta where my daughter from Minneapolis will join the Atlanta son and family and us for a visit and to see Lauren's competitive cheer performance. Seriously, it is hard to believe what those young girls can achieve!! And sometimes it is hard for this grandma to watch!!

Cooper will be at Doggie Vaycay having a good time with his friend Deuce. We are so delighted to have found a place where he is treated like family; so much easier to leave him than at a kennel.

Have a great weekend!! We are experiencing crazy warm weather today ... should cool off by Saturday. It is hard to know what to pack!!
