Ugh. More Christmas Cards?

First, lemme tell you, I made this card just to make it. It's not about to hit the assembly line or anything. I'm really done. This Santa was just so cute & he was begging to be inked! Even Darien thinks this fat little guy is cute. Can I just say that simple is soooo where it's at for me these days? Yeah, I know, I've always leaned toward the simple, but I'm really pressed for time lately. Who isn't? This card went so fast I just wanna stand up & cheer. I knew I wanted simple and I knew I was gonna use this stamp. It started out on white paper, but then his beard & all the trim just didn't stand out. So I went over to my new favorite, kraft. Why am I just now figuring out how awesome this paper is? I dunno, but I'm glad I'm just late to the party, rather than never showing up. The Santa & snowflake are part of those clear Inkadinkado stamp sets that you get at Costco, for like, 5 sheets at $15. Yeah, they started out as $20, but in these tough economic times when people can't buy food to feed their kids, but will still buy stamps to feed their fix *gasp! who would do that? nobody I know*, that's what happens. I kid. My kids eat. Most of the time.

Stamps: Many Merry Messages (SU!), Inkadinkado, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Brilliance Moonlight White, Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: Basic Black (SU!), Kraft & Pure Poppy (PTI), Accessories: Cuttlebug folder, Inkssentials white pigment pen (awesome!), Copics: C3, G05, R29
