Hello! I hope you had a nice Sunday. We had another sunny day and it was great. We had bbq - so many yummy foodies. And now there's also some ice-cream waiting for me in the freezer. Nothing to complain about. ;)
I made another Christmas card today. I hope you are not tired of seeing Christmas my cards yet. lol My goal is to make at least 100 this year, so I really should work on these all through the year. I'm not even on half way yet, but I'm slowly getting there.
For this card I followed the great sketch at CropStop blog. I used the lovely paper from Provo Craft. I used the Classic Santa stamp from Stampabilities. Around it I used some Tim Holtz's Brushed corduroy distress ink to give it a more vintage looks, but unfortunately you can't really see this in the picture (you can only see abrown smudge in the left upper corner - I swear this is there intentionally, it's not just dirty lol). Speaking about distress inks ... I got an e-mail from one lady who asked me why do I only use just one or 2 distress inks while there are quite some different ones. Well, I only have 4 (Brushed corduroy, Spun sugar, Weathered woods and Shabby shutters), that's why I only use those. ;) Back to my card ... I colored the image with Faber Castell watercolor pencils. I made the pins myself (I used plastic star shaped beads and headpins). Ribbons are from my stash. I wrote the sentiment myself.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge: Photo inspiration (I used Santa as my inspiration)
