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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your 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

I love your take on the Santa Suit card Granmargaret, well done! The thin, black belt with the lovely gold buckle is fabulous. I also love the way you've added the cute image of Santa at the side.
