Autumn and Santa Too?

Here in Alberta we’ve had snow on and off for the last 4 days.  It really hasn’t stuck around but continues to fall.  I’m SOOO not ready for winter to begin.  We had such a wet summer that it didn’t really feel like a summer at all!  I need just another 6-8 weeks of Fall!!!

I’m over on the Power Poppy Blog today sharing a quick tutorial on how to use Copic Markers and the air brush system to create simple back grounds.  Click the photo below to be taken to the post!

So in honour of another snowy day, I thought I’d pull out my new holiday themed Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and create a card for their Wonderful WednesdayAnything Goes” challenge. 

For this card, I used their brand new “Dear Santa” stamp set.  The inside reads “Define ‘good’?”  LOL… so cute right!
 Copics:  coat/hat: R14, R17, R29, R89  dog: E30, E23, E25, E27  skin: E50, E00, E11, R02  
hair/coat: N1, N2  boots: N5, N7, N10, Y13, Y17

I used the fun and fab “Log Cabin Mounainscape” die from SugarPea Designs for my background.

I hope you’re having a great Monday.  It’s the last day of our Thanksgiving weekend so we’re just playin’ it easy today.
