Merry Christmas!!!

What? You mean it's NOT Christmas yet? But the garden center near my house has had their Christmas trees displayed for a month now!! Surely that means it's almost Christmas!!

I did this card for yesterday's SCS sketch challenge. I had gotten up early yesterday & colored the image, knowing I wanted to use that SC for the layout. But then a wave of yuck hit me, & I ended up just resting for most of the day yesterday. I still feel a bit icky, but I really wanted to finish this card.


I used another brand new image from High Hopes. This one is called Reindeer Games & you can find it here. Remember, when you order stamps from High Hopes, you have the option of wood mounted, unmounted with cling foam, or completely bare rubber. How awesome is that?!?! I stamped the image with Stazon & colored it with my trusty Prismas & Gamsol. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the snow, & Liquid Applique to Santa's fur. Of course, some of the glitter got into the LA, so Santa is a bit sparkly himself :) All the pattern paper is from the Rob & Bob Holiday Slab I picked up last year on clearance. The olive piece is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snow Dots folder ~~ yes, I used a new folder!!!! I added 3 snowflakes (I think I got those at a rummage sale) & used my Martha Stewart branch punch to punch some leaves. Added some Primas & a brad, along with some Stickles & called it done!!

Remember to check out the High Hopes blog ~ not only are we posting challenges every Sunday, but we will also be posting the Project of the Month info. This month's project was done by Kimmie, & what a fab job she did!!! Go check out the projects she did, & all the stamps included in the special! They are 25% off when you buy the whole set ~ what a deal!!

I'm off to do some grocery shopping today, which is the last thing I feel like doing. But we gotta eat ~~~ & the grocery fairy isn't around today so I have to do it myself. I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!!

This is adorable, Michelle! I love the colors and your coloring. This Santa and reindeer are too cute! I had to order them yesterday when I ordered. Hey, if you find that grocery fairy, can you send her my way after she's done picking up your groceries? Have a great day!

I adore your Christmas card!! I love the 'old fashioned' red, green and white combo. That is really Christmas!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog. When it comes to my card I made it out of the usual 6"x12" cardstock, and instead of folding it in two I folded it in three. Really easy, but it gives a totally different card!

Have fun making your 'new' card ;)
