December 25th

How's your Christmas cad making going? I still have plenty left to make and went with one of my fave colour combos this Christmas for this Simply Sassy stamp from Sugar Nellie called Secret Santa. I bought her last year and she hasn't been out for a while. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with lot of glitter for the fur. The papers are Papermania and I've used DI Worn Lipstick around the edges. I've used some hessian and red velvet ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, Marianne die cut snowflakes. The 25 is a Tim Holtz salvage sticker and the pearl and pearl stars are from The Works.
