hello christmas


Hello there, I'm back and happily nestled back in my craftroom.  Neil and I popped up to the Sunshine Coast for the week (his parents go on their annual pilrimage up to the warmer climate while it is cold down here in Victoria and we thought we would join them for a week ... mind you it was only marginally warmer than down South!)
Anyway I decided to join the sketch challenge from Feeling Sketchy and make a christmas card for AnnaBelle stamps, Quirky Crafts and Party Time Tuesday blogs which all have a christmas theme!

here is my card - I stamped a santa hat I have and then masked it and stamped the little girl from tomorrows dream so she is wearing the santa hat ...
 
here is a close up of the little sweetie ...
 
I applied crystalina kindy glitz to the hat to give it a little sparkle!
materials - White cardstock; Kaisercraft 'silly season' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'tomorrows dream', 'stemmed flowers' (hello title), MFT christmas ornaments stamps (christmas title) and Ferngully 'santa hat' stamps; Staz On jet black, Versa Color sky blue and Versa Magic night sky inks; Crayola pencils; Inque grosgrain; green brad; kindy glitz crystalina; Kaisercraft red pearls.
Thanks for looking.
