Last Minute......

.......Christmas cards!!!

So, my dad comes home tonite and asks, knowing the answer is no before he asks, if we have any extra loose Christmas cards laying around. This year has been a tough year on us as a family and I'm guilty of not buying or making any cards to send out.

Regardless of that, my dad needed cards for work and he knew all he had to do was say the word and I'd get right to work on them.

My card features a new stamp company to our store and a new stamp company to me. LaBlanche stamps out of Germany have manufactured some amazingly detailed stamps including this jolly Santa on my card.

I kept the creation of this card simple since I needed 5 of them tonite. I originally reached for my Manolia stamps but realized all the coloring needed for those would make it near impossible to create 5 cards (I'm easily distracted LOL). Anywho, Bazzill card stock, KaiserCraft DP, scrap ribbon, Copic markers, TH Distress inks and a couple hours later, VOILA!!!

I'd love to hear what you think of this quick and easy card as well as the image - the minute I saw him I knew he had to be mine!!!

Thanks for stopping by, happy scrappin and Merry Christmas to you all!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
