Hi girls, nice to have you here on my blog for a look see. I hope you find something you like here. The weather has really gone for a burton here - heavy rain and winds. has our Indian summer gone for good? Ah well it's all a good excuse for spending time in the craftroom and I have Kathleen from The Daisy Chain visiting this afternoon so that will be fun.
I made this card for entering into two challenges. ABC Christmas - "S" is for Santa. the twist was that There was to be no Red on Santa. Now that really was a challenge - it just doesn't seem right does it? Secondly, Creative Inspirations where the call was for "Lace and Sparkle". There was another challenge that asked for "Transportation" and I wondered if it would qualify for that if I claimed that Santa's sleigh was parked just out of the picture LOL. Thought that might be a bit of a stretch though.
I decided to go for a card with a distressed look. I used Magnolia's "Santa Delivering Presents" and coloured him using my Copics.I layered him on top of my Magnolia background stamp "Silent Night". The papers are the back side of Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses - Finial" and some Bo Bunny scraps. The lace, pearls and glitter are from my stash. Looking at it now I wonder if the lace ribbon should be wider - opinions please. The glitter has no come out terribly well on the photograph but believe me it is there. The snowflakes were made using a Martha Stewart punch.
I hope you might have an extra minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think of this card. I love to read your views.
Thank you for calling in and taking time to visit. Enjoy your day and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
