Santa's List

Okay, I know. Something is up, I just don't know what it is......lololol. I don't craft for months and all the sudden I am going crazy. I never stopped but so far it has only been in my head.
I started last night on this Christmas card and I had almost all the papers placed and cut the way I wanted them, except for the brown horizontal one. Then as I was checking Jeannette's blog this morning I saw that she was the hostess for this weeks Friday Sketchers. You all know that she is an extremely talented lady. I never have followed anybodies sketch or entered a challenge blog. So now I am trying for the second one..... Is this crazy, or what !?!?!

I hope I can keep the rest short and sweet, since I have been rambling. Okay, I used SU caramel for the base of the card and the matting is Basic Grey Wassail, last years Christmas paper. The green one is PTI from the Green Tea Leaves collection. The image is a digital one from Sassy Cheryl. Since it is digital, I had to print it out on the watercolor paper that I got at the local CS. It  is thinner but you can't color as well but I "had to" use distress inks...lololol. It is cut with the Spellbinders Label 1 and the green paper with Label 8. I cut the brown DP with a large rectangle. The ribbon is from my stash and the die cuts are from Fiskars. Some Dew Drops and a X-mas tree charm from my stash. Sorry, I can't get a better picture today but if you enlarge it I think you can get a better idea of the colors. One minute the sun is shining and the next minute the clouds are back.

Voila!!! My first Christmas card for 2010. I hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your Sunday ....
