Question Boy...

This sweet little man is the little man of 101 questions these days..."What is Thanksgiving?  How many days until Christmas?  Why are those socks hanging on the fire?  What does Santa do with those socks?  Show me how many days on your fingers?  How many minutes until dinner?"  You name it, he has a question.  But he is so cute...(Photo compliments of his seven year old big brother Collin...isn't this a great picture of Marcel?)

I loved Heather's inspiration for us this week on the CASE Study challenge.  I immediately thought of the patterned October Afternoon paper I had...almost a perfect match to the background stamp she used.  Of course, I also love these Hero Art trees.  To make this, I embossed the trees with Versamark and then inked over them with Ranger Distress Ink.  A little paper piecing and we were ready to go.  Another dent in the Christmas cards!  
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler Paper, Real Red Ribbon, Whisper White Paper; Hero Arts Stamps; October Afternoon DSP; Clear Embossing Powder

Ha! Love it when you find some DP that totally matches a project...I must root through my own stash sometime! LOL!
Love your card and especially the way you've angled the sentiment - perfect!
Thanks so much for joining us on CASE study (and for sharing that super sweet pic of your boy too!)
Hugs,
