Old World Santa

I love the Christmas set from Crafty Secrets. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket. There is a bit of sparkly brown paper that was punched with Martha Stewart's border punch. The image was colored with my Copics. I added flocking to his beard and then "dirtied" it up with a brown dauber. The ribbon is from my vintage stash.

*** Many of you asked me how I cuttlebugged the note card set. I simply put the folder on top of the card and ran it through my Sizzix machine. It didn't leave an indentation around the folder at all. Maybe with a different machine it would, I'm not sure. Try it and let me know if it works for you!

And thank you for all the kind comments concerning my daughter. It really means a lot to me that people care so much. Especially since most of you come to look at cards and such.....so from the bottom of my heart.....THANK YOU!!!

Another stunner! I love the colors you picked, your combos always look so good. I should do more "dirtying" on my cards, they're always so prim and proper!
