Santa's Hat - Mo's Digital Pencil

Happy Hump Day!! The week is almost over and I am finally starting to catch up a little bit! I have made over 20 cards so far this week and have about 15 more to go, but I am getting there! I didn't even photograph over half of them or you would be looking at Christmas cards until next Christmas and I am getting to the point I am ready to move on to other celebrations!

I had to share this card with you for I am so happy with the way it turned out and I might just have to keep this one! I used the cutest image from Mo's Digital Pencil! Oh my gosh I love the angelic face she created with the wishful look "Are you coming?" I love, love her images! Last night I bought one of her elf's swinging on a Christmas ball and I can't wait to color it!

I sewed gold thread with what I call my Snowflake stitch around the border and in it is so shimmery! All my thread was given to me by my mom who used to be quite the seamstress! I was looking at the various colors  when I spotted spools of silver and gold thread and guess how much they were in the 80's? Originally they were 45 cents each but had a sticker over top of the original 10/1.00!! Gasp!! Today I have no doubt they would be $7.00. Unreal!!

The tree is by Jolee's from last years stash.  Paper: 6 x 6 Lost and Found Christmas paper pad by My Minds Eye.  I cut the rug out with Nestability Scallop Oval  and embossed it with a Craft's Too Scroll Works embossing  folder to give it a little texture. DecoArt Glamour Dust which is a iridescent superfine glitter and sparkles big time!  Copics: R39, R37, R35, YG99. YG95 YG93, YG91!

Don't forget to stop by SCACD for all of your crafting needs!

Merry Christmas!

Oh I KNOW I'd keep this one for myself! It's just gorgeous. Love the stitched snowflakes and know that had to have taken a lot of time. But they're so pretty on this lovely card. Hang on to that wonderful thread too!
