Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Ho Ho Ho


Hello, I hope you don’t mind a bit of Christmas in July here on the blog today. I was totally in love with the Colors over at The Paper Players this week, and then when I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches I thought it would be easy and fun to combine the two. Karren Johnson enticed me to make a Christmas card, once I saw her cute card and many others by the DT over at FMS. I adore this darling Santa die from Spellbinders that I got last year or maybe the year before. I have him linked up for you below.

Card Details: Spellbinders-DIE D-LITES SANTA ETCHED DIES, Snowflake Embossing folder that you can barely see on one of the rectangles. The green scallops were made with MFT’s Stitched Border Dies. The Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is called December Typed. I used Nuvo drops and glitter on Santa’s hat and pom pom. I also used a white-out pen to color in Santa’s eyebrows and tried to make them a bit bushy. The Postal Die is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you did something today that brought you JOY. Hubby and I went to the beach and we lasted one hour, it’s just too hot! Take care, Nanc’
