joyful

Jolly Old St. Nicholas...


That's the challenge over at Jingle Belles....I was at a loss since I don't have any Santa'ish stamps...but I found this fun image over at the Graphics Fairy.

I gussied the image up with my Scor Tape and Martha silver glitter...love that look.  The card base is Gmund Savanna.  

Okay, different photog here...I took it at Darin's...he needs a photo tent:)

I whipped this card together for Darin's son that recently turned 21.  It is a sneaky peek of an upcoming Skipping Stones Design set:)


I was inspired by the latest Clean and Simple sketch:


Thanks for stoppin' by!!!!!
