Merry Ho, Ho, Ho!

I had such good intentions back in January to start making Christmas cards early this year!  I guess July (almost) is early enough.  Going to have to be anyway!

Meet Eunice!  She's over at Art Impressions and I love her.  One of these years I'm going to dress up just like this for Christmas - and scare everyone to death!  At least she looks like she's having fun.  Then again, maybe she dresses like this all year long!  Scary!  I colored her with Copics. did a little paper piecing and added the sequins.  The "Ho!" was created with an alphabet die.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Art Impressions (inspiration sequin).

Thanks for stopping by.........

Oh Lynn, love your cards, they are so humourous. hahaha, please post a pic when you do dress up like Eunice!!! lol

Irish Cherokee said...

We had a neighbor that looked like this. Shudder. I was too young to know if she was nice or not. Scared the bejeebers out of me. She is more fun on the card. A fun Christmas card Lynn. Great job.

Carol L said...

OMG, I needed this one this morning! What a riot Eunice is, all decked out like a misguided elf! LOL I love the sentiment too which is clearly missing 2 ho's! LOL Great fun card Lynn, thx for the chuckles :)

Lynn McAuley said...

I absolutely love Eunice in her elf suit! What a fabulous holiday card, Lynn! Awesome paper piecing!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

LOL! I think she is smiling cause her bloomers are hiked up so high! Great card, Lynn! Please take pictures if you dress up!

Benzi said...

Holy Smokes!!!!!!!!! This is too fun. I am still laughing at Irish Cherokee's comment. Eunice has to be in pain with those high pants/bloomers. If you ever dress like that (and I hope you do), we want a photo. Super fun card, Lynn.

Oh, Ka-UTE! I really like those cat-eye glasses too. Ditto those dangling earrings. And yes, the dotty drawers! A real fashion statement she is. When you dress up like this feisty lady, I wanna see pictures, K? She made me smile and this is an adorable card. Like the subtle striped embossing to class up this senior Santa! TFS & Hugs

Eunice is one of my favorite Christmas "elves" !! I bought her last year after I saw you use her on a card (which you kindly sent to me. :-D) I love the polka dot paper piecing paired up with her green and white stripes. Love the sequins. This is so delightfully silly, Lynn. Thanks for the grin this morning. :-D

Tammy said...

She is my inspiration! Again - sequins! I must tell you I thought of you yesterday as I was digging for something. I found a bag of sequins! I immediately thought....I gotta tell Lynn!

I really love her paper pieced outfit - it is perfectly merry!

Here's an idea. Some day you and I will actually meet. We will know each other by both of us wearing THIS 'classy' outfit!
