Yes, I've been quiet for a while... I've just been having a little break from my rushing to get things on line etc... it's done me good I think. But I did make all my Christmas cards early, which was great.. and then I made this one for my Grandchildren... of course it's the very person they're hoping to arrive at Christmas!
The stamp is an older one from CC Designs when I was part of their Design Team - so it's a few years old - but the rubber is still in perfect condition and Santa winked at me when I was looking through my stash, so out he came to be coloured up again this year!
I did some Distress Ink blending for the background, then stamped with Versamark using the Taylored Expressions Twinkle Twinkle background. I coloured and fussy cut the Santa and adhered him to the background.
