About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Beccy's Place month of holiday cards - day 21 - Santa Suit

Day 21 at Beccy's Place month of holiday cards is Santa Suit

Beccy is giving us a different challenge each day and showing us lovely cards she has made to the theme plus also some tutorials.  She is being very generous and giving prizes each day.

I joined to get the different ideas for my cards.

I have stamped Happy Christmas onto red card.  Added black ribbon threaded through buckle.  Added 3 pearls for buttons.  Layered onto white card.   Printed precoloured Santa from Daydream Designs Santa Please colour set onto white card, layered onto black card and then onto the red card.

I didn't notice until after I had finished the card, that when I turned Santa to look in the opposite direction the writing on his letter is back to front.

I would also like to enter this card into

  2. Ho! Ho! Ho! Thanks for entering both of my CHNC challenges with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon. x
