Meet Mr. Tumbledore

Who does he remind you of??? You got it, Randy! Ralphie's little brother from the movie "A Christmas Story", after his mom dressed him all up to go outside in the snow. If you've never seen the movie, "A Christmas Story" pleeeeease look it up on your TV listing and watch it. It's an old movie from the 50's I think and I promise you, you will die laughing. It's like my all time favorite movie, that is right behind "It's a Wonderful Life". Now don't tell me you've never seen that one either. Promise me that if you've never seen either one, that you'll try to find them this week and watch 'em. You won't be disappointed. I added a You Tube link below to the scene with Randy and his snowsuit. Hopefully it works! Just click your browser's BACK button when your done viewing.

Now tell me he doesn't remind you of Mr. Tumbldore. ROFL!! Ok, so Mr. Tumbledore is from Eat Cake Graphics. Isn't he the best?? I couldn't decide what sentiment to use so I decided to come up with one of my own. LOL! That'd be my luck, either I couldn't find my keys or I'd have to use the bathroom!!! Good grief!!
I stamped him onto some Classic Crest CS and colored him with my Copics. I cut his scarf out and then cut the rectangle around him. I matted him with some SU Chocolate Chip CS and stitched around the edges. This DP is from Collage Press and I used my Stampin' Up scalloped border punch on the striped DP and mat and then I used my decorative scissors on the top and bottom edges of the gingham DP. I stitched around the edges of the DP and then tied on this orange polka dot grosgrain ribbon. I used my circle punches to punch out the sentiment and mat and there you have Christmas card #49!! Woo-hoo!! Hope you have a SUPER DUPER Tuesday!
