Happy Friday! Christmas in July!

Hello everyone!  Today was the beginning of our vacation.To make a long story short my hubby was in a vehicle accident today. He is fine, the Tribecca is demolished. It happened when a fire truck was approaching from the other direction and the truck in front of him slammed on their breaks and our SUV went underneath. It happened in PA 3 hours from home. The SUV is new, but can be replaced... he can't all is good! 

Tips of the day:  When placing flowers on your cards, use different color leaves to emphasized your card colors. On today's card I used white leaves which made the corner look brighter and matched the paper!    Small tight places like the bottom of Rudolph legs,  I color with Prima Color Pencils, it's so much easier and faster!

Santa and Friends, is part of the The Winter Wonderland Collection made exclusively for Susana Custom Art and Card Design! I just love this santa! His beard, cap and bottom of his coat has Doddle Bug white flock applied thickly and  Polar White Flower Soft for the snow. I cut away the gift boxes and added my own. The Color Combo at Simply Scrapping Crafts asks for Red, White, Blue and Brown.  The challenge at Follow Your Heart  wants faux or sewing on your card. Well, it didn't take an Einstein to know which one I would choose! Santa and Friends were faux!!! I love Santa and Rudolph, but I can still wait a bit for winter!!
