Always Believe!

Hello! Isn't the image on this card just so sweet? The image is from The Stamping Boutique and it is called Santa in the Window. I colored the image with the few copics that I have...I just need to get MORE! I really wanted the image to look "Christmasy" and struggled with that...but did manage to get some reds and greens in there. The paper used to mat the image on was some that I had picked up at Hobby Lobby made by Paper Studio...just thought it would go with what I was trying to achieve. BUT, this darn paper would not cut on my cutter...I had to cut it freehand. There is a layer of brushed silver under that which came from a pack of American Crafts Christmas Foil...again from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment was a stamp I had purchased from JoAnn Fabrics last of those little $1.00 packages of clear stamps by Studio G. Hmmmm...can you tell where I spend most of my time...and MONEY????!!! Our Hobby Lobby is only about 15 minutes away from me and on my way home from work so I ususally find myself stopping there quite frequently. Don't forget about the blog hop coming up on will be tons of fun! That's all for tonight, going to clean up my craft room a little before heading to bed. Thanks so much for coming by...I have lots of catching up to do with all of you as well...see you tomorrow!

This is really cute Vicki. I have some of that same star paper but haven't cut any of it yet.

I think your card looks nice and Christmassy!
