Now onto my project! 



My card base is 5X7.  All of the paper I used is Recollections from Michael's.  The Santa image was stamped with a rubber stamp I purchased at Hobby Lobby and colored using my Crayola pencil colors and OMS.  I added some stickles for some sparkle.  I punched the corners with a corner punch and inked around the edges and distressed it a bit with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink.  The pretty gold ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby. For the inside of the card, I stamped the little trees with Old Olive ink from Stampin Up.  the Tree stamp is from the $1 bin at Michael's.  My sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and was stamped using the same Old Olive ink. 

Up next is the talented MS. LEAH!


In case you get lost, here is the complete lineup:

Thanks for hopping along with us! 
Hopefully you've been inspired to get in your craft space and start working on your Christmas projects!

Until Next time..........
