It Must Be Santa

Well sometime it takes a while before an idea comes into play as it did with this photo of my 2 Grandsons picture with Santa last year, I think this will be the last picture of the 2 of them together with Santa (brave 13 year old). I've worked on this on an off for several months and finally said OK, get it DONE.  I wanted it up for Christmas.

I saw that Creative Embellishments  was having a Challenge on their blog and decided I wanted to share my Scrap Page, have never posted a scrapbook page.

I heat embossed White snowflakes with the help of my little grandson and then he painted the wooded snowflakes. I added greenery with and make a Santa bag with toys.

A CHALLENGE???  I wonder what that can be - oh that's right I heard someone mention that the other day.  It means you have to go with some guidelines.

Well over at  Joan's Gardens   she is having a fall challenge and you need to include the following on your card:

Leaves on your card                                    CK
Fall Colors                                                    CK
Tree and/or bird (think a branch will do)       CK
You must use a product sold at  Joan's Gardens. Well that's not a problem because I like her shop and I find lots to buy there.                           CK

Now I think I can do this:

With all the beautiful fall weather we have been having this week it won't be hard to put this card together.  I started to with 2 shades  of Bazzil CS and then a pin dot Kraft CS that I stamped with background design from JustRite using TH Peeled Paint. I then stamped Penny Black fall stamps onto Basic Grey DP and fussy cut them out and then distressed with TH Pumice Stone. The twigs are a Memory Box die. The orange flourish is MFT as are the Curly Q's. These were all distressed and then I used the flower tool to break down the fibers in the paper to shape and curl up the Curly Q's.  The sentiment is from JustRite. The ribbon is from my stash.

All of the above products (except the DP) can be purchased at   www.atjoansgardens.com

This has been fun and hope you have enjoyed my fall card.  See you soon.

Hugs until then,
