This is card number 2 with this sketch. Easy Peezy! I made the Christmas Script background on my computer. And just sponged around it and over the words. The edges were dipped in Glitter. I went over Santa's beard, eyes and glasses with Spica glitter pen. Of course, you can't see that here. :(

My friend, Pia, saw that everyone was using this gorgeous Santa image on SCS, so when she saw then at Michaels (I think?) she bought the only 2 that they had. So I bought one off of her. It is intimidating to just look at, but really quite an easy stamp to use. Me likey! :P I printed off 2 pages of that word background...one in Cranberry and one in True Thyme. So I will make up several of these for Christmas. At least that is my intentions...!

Sorry I am so late in posting today...Usually I schedule the post the night before but I didn't get a chance last night. And the kids are home from school today for Veteran's Day. Honest to God, between 1/2 days, voting, Veteran's day and Thanksgiving break, they only have about 12.5 days of school this month. Anyhow, by the time I actually post this it will have taken me about 2 hours. Those kids! ...they act like they NEED lunch or need dirty diapers changed! heeheehee....Does my joking sarcasm come across via the blog? :)

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
