Congratulations Cat! Please send me your snail mail address and I will get the JustRite Curlz Font & Border Kit right out to you! And my personal thanks to all the rest of you for your sweet comments and for playing along!

Now...on to the card! This adorable image is from the Artful Stamper, called Santa Claus .

Honestly, this card was so, so easy to make! I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. I colored with Tombow (water based markers), adding a little gray shading to his beard.

I used White Liquid Applique on his cap, and sprinkled it with Crystal Ultrafine Glitter by Art Institute Glitter. Then I heat set from the underneath to make it puff a little. I added a thin layer of JudiKins Diamond Glaze to his glasses to give them a glass look.
The sentiment is Ho Border also from The Artful Stamper. I stamped it on acetate using StazOn ink, then placed it over the designer paper piece and attached it with Red Mini Brads .

The red and green cardstock is from Prism Papers . The designer paper is from One Heart One Mind. And it totally made this card super easy.

I had a fun day yesterday. I met a friend for lunch, then we went to see The Women . It was a GREAT movie....but you need to see it with a girlfriend because it is definitely a chick flick!

The wedding was very nice, but I have to admit that I only stayed a respectable amount of time. I was anxious to get home to my stamps! LOL! I must tell you a little secret....I actually bought a card to go with my wedding gift! I know...My bad!

If this post looks a little different in your browser, it's because I'm writing it in Draft Blogger to test scheduling posts for a later date. I haven't done this before, and I have no idea how it works! I do know that it isn't letting me manipulate things as I usually do! Grrrrrr!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by! I will be back soon with something new.
