Define- JOY

I did a little coloring today and was channeling JOY!

 I can send this to any of my 4 brothers and 2 sisters, and the first thing that will enter their minds, with a smile on their faces, is Dad. My Dad enjoyed sugar very much (and was as skinny as could be- and never had blood sugar issues....).  I am pretty sure his favorite way to ingest sugar was eating Jelly Beans.  There were always candy bowls around the house with Tootsie rolls, Tootsie pops, and other assorted candy.  It was always a challenge to me, as I enjoy sugar a bit (ALOT)  myself, but do not have his skinny body type : )  

This sweet image is called Jelly Bean Break from House Mouse.  I used DP from Bo Bunny. The border punch is M.S. The embossing is on the green sentiment strip using a retired EF from SU, and the dies are by Crafty-Ann. I used a touch of Distress ink on the card and the sky.  

I used the sketch from SCS for today,  3/4. I am entering this in the House Mouse Challenge where the challenge is AG embossing- wet or dry.  I embossed the panel under the letters. 

Thanks for stopping by!

How clever is this wee mouse? Break the chocolate egg open, use one as a seat while you eat the jelly beans, then eat your seat!! Talk about recycling. Great colouring and I loved your story. Thanks for sharing with us at HouseMouse&Friends, CarolG
