Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

A Warm Christmas

Meighan, an elf at Holly Jolly chose  this week's theme for the challenge.  Her challenge is very interesting, create a card made with warm Christmas colours or a scene, not winter.   Meighan lives in Australia and it is about time we made some Christmas card showing the celebration of our south of the equator card crafters. 

I chose to make this surfing Santa for my card this week.   The digital stamp is by an Australian company called Spesch Designer Stamps. I coloured the image with my Copics and cut out the image with a two part Memory Box die, then I layered the image on a couple of different pattern papers.  I added a ribbon and sentiment to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a creative day and come join us at Holly Jolly this week.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Craft Paper
 Through The Craft Room Door - Alway's Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Snowbirds
