Merry Monday Challenge #6

Just a quick little post with my Christmas card this week, using Lesley’s sketch:
and some vintagey Christmas stamps & BG Wassail paper:
This didn’t turn out quite as well as I had hoped; I stamped the image on some watercolor paper, which caused the ink to be absorbed and a little faded.  I overstamped it with a Linen BG stamp to help it out a little!
I also stamped my sentiment circle with Linen as well, and added some red glitter around the edge of my Santa.  Oh well, you win some, you lose some!
Here’s a winner for sure!   This is the first time she’s ridden this little rocking horse she got for Christmas, and it’s almost too small for her:
If you press its ear, it makes a whinnying sound, then some music.  She loves the whinny, but NOT the music!

Oh dear, poor kidlet. She looked so happy in the first pic! Great vintage Christmas card LeAnne. Thanks for joining me. Have a great day!

Life is so unfair -- you should be able to have one without the other!! Give me the whinny but hold the music!!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. You asked about the Smitten sentiment. I actually bought it last week in the 1$ bin @ AC Moore craft store. It was a great find.

This is a gorgeous vintage santa image. Great job!

Oh Cassidy looks so sad in the last picture. I didn't think she every looked like that. I know just how she feels. That is my reactions to a lot of music I hear. LOL
Love the card I need to get my weekly Christmas cards made tomorrow.
I got my lovely card today. Wow is it gorgeous! I love how you do the crinkly bows. Thank you!

She is too cute!!! I love your card, too. I actually like the way it turned out - very vintage-y. I think the linen overstamp did the trick!!
Have a great weekend!
