A Vintage Ornament Line-up

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice of course (it was hubby's choice today - see below for funny story!)

Today, as is every Sunday, is Doodle Beans day for me. Not designated by Randa, the owner, just by my own choosing. I think because so many of her images have such a special meaning to me in regards to my faith. So it just seemed appropriate to make every Sunday the day I showcase something with the neat digis from DB! :) yep, I'm a goofball, but we all knew that anyway!

One of the new holiday images is this beautiful line-up of ornaments.I love the way they look and immediately wanted to pair them with this gorgeous paper from Basic Grey's Fruitcake collection. I tried to color some of the ornaments to match those in the paper as best I could. I then took my spica glitter pen and outlined each ornament as well as any little swirls, lines, or curlyques within. so irl ther is a lot of shine! This fabby-licious trim is more of my JoAnn's stash - you have just GOT to go check out their trim section to see what they have!! you will be amazed! :) Poinsettia is from Prima, leaf punches are Martha Stewart, and vintage buttons are from my Etsy stash. card base is edged in white craft ink.

Now for the funny story about today's coffee. David chose our flavor today. Actually we had two - the pumpkin spice and creme brulee. but I have to tell you a secret - my hubby is a closet pumpkin spice latte lover! he will go through the drive-thru at Starbucks so he doesn't have to get out and take a chance someone he knows will see him with a pumpkin spice latte & give him a hard time! it makes me giggle every time I think about it!!! I have to order them when we go to Starbuck's together. He is afraid that the guys at the church district office will razz him big time for being a latte lover, so he goes 'undercover' to get his. now understand that my hubby is a 6'4" guy who looks quite intimidating at times. our middle son, Mick, is even taller than his dad. so the idea that he sneaks through the drive-thru just cracks me up!!!!! Obviously he drinks as much pumpkin spice coffee at home as he possibly can!!! Sorry honey bunny, you have been OUTED!!!!

everyone have a great and glorious day! love ya!
