Rip Roaring Good Time

the ticket Christmas sentiments and 25 printed on it
Seems like a lifetime ago when a rip roaring good time usually entailed too much liquor, dancing (on the bar?), meeting the most adorable guy (son of Frankenstein), pledging your never ending love to anyone within ear shot and ending with a hangover that made you swear you'd never drink again.  At least you thought that was where it ended till you went back to the bar and people start telling you things you did the last time they saw you and you have no idea who they are and no recollection of those exploits.  But I digress...

Making a beachy Christmas card is what's a rip roaring good time as you near the golden years...

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "The Beach"
ink - Memento "Rich Cocoa", Ranger "Tea Dye" and "Scattered Straw"
paper - Stampin' Up "Kraft" cs; Graphic 45 Christmas Past collection; Neenah Classic Crest Natural White card stock
miscellaneous - MFT ribbon; burlap twine; snowflake charm; Christmas ticket

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club MFTWSC38 - sketch
One Stitch at a Time #81 - Favorites (charm)
2 Sisters #58 - Gingham or Plaid
Polka Doodles #38 - Distress It

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come back again.
