Back in December I decided to sign up for the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop in the hopes that I would have at least 12 Christmas cards made for this year and hopefully some gift tags as well. You could say it was one of my early New Years Resolutions. I just love hand made gifts, don't you! Now on to my card!
Magnolia-licious, the adorable Santa Edwin and the Winter Bench stamps. Looks like Diana has the Santa Edwin stamp in stock and the Winter Bench stamp is on re-order. If you don't see what you are looking for just drop Diana an email, she will help you the best she can. If you are interested in the MAGNOLIA-licious Yahoo group click HERE for more information.
I got the idea to make this card using a paper bag from Claudia Rose's Magnolia Blog back in December, click HERE to go to her posting. What a nice way to send a card and small gift all in one.
SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN
I used the following Copics to color my image:
Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11, R20
Hair: E35, E25, E27
Santa Suit: R35, R37, R39
Mittens: G85, G94
Boots: C1, C3, C5,C7
Bench: E25, E27, E29, E35
Bench cover: W1, W3, W5
The paper is from my stash as are the poinsettia's, cherry blossoms and stickers. The fur on Santa's suit is Twinkling Clouds Flocking (I love this stuff). I also used some Crystal Stickles on my card to add some extra sparkle.
The Sentiment is form the Christmas Carole, "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town".
Thanks so much for stopping by. Your next stop on the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop is the very talented Danielle's Blog, who has something fabulous to show you. I am sure you will love it!
