My Best for Him, pa rum pa pum pum

"I'll play my best for Him"   I so love that Christmas song...the heart to honor the King of Kings, out of who we are....gives me goosebumps!

Whew!  How's that for an xtra large size picture!  :)  Too big???  








































I colored the Nutcracker/Drummer with copic markers to match this very fun Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paper.  And I mirrored the long triangles from the drum onto my background with paper as well.  I wanted it to feel like the drumming sound is flowing from him with the addition of the piercing.


And above I detailed the sentiment carefully to look like the top of a drum in shape, with colored and cut out holly and rhinestones as accent.

Well, now the Flourishes Release for October is complete, wasn't it fun????  The store is open, so please drop by...Flourishes always releases the New Bundle of stamps at a discount.....so come take a look at all the sets in their glory!
