Vintage Santa


Happy Wednesday, everyone!  How’s the weather in your area?  We went right from winter to summer, I think!  Crazy but I am not complaining! 

I have a Christmas card for you today, using these  two challenges from the Jingle Belles and Merry Monday:

and the “vintage” challenge from Christmas Cards All Year ‘Round:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Vintage Christmas Artistic Outpost

I used some scraps from my Christmas paper stash and a vintage tag from Brenda Walton:


I used heat embossing as well as dry embossing on the two panels:


The cardinal is a retired Artistic Outpost set and the embossing folder is called Christmas Words & Dots from Sissix.  I did a lot of sponging as well to give it a more vintage look!  Sparkly accents included gold baker’s twine and some champagne glimmer sheet scallops!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy was VERY excited about getting some new sand for the sandbox:




even to the point of laying down in it!


Enjoy your day!
