Santa Blue!!!

I don't know about Manicstamper today.........I've been more like an old!!! I've been doing some serious mucking out at Manic Towers along with furniture shifting and cooking as well.
After tea I was shattered so went upstairs to make a start on an order for Christmas cards and wouldn't you just mojo for the kind of cards I needed to make so ended up just doing something inky.
I have used a Tim Holtz stamp, a Magenta stamp, a Hero Arts stamp, Distress Inks, chalk inks, Moonglow spray, various diecuts and punches for the snowflakes and a touch of stickles.
Started off by stamping the Santa image and colouring it with Broken China, Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord DI's then sprayed with Scintillating Silver Moonglow spray.
For the background I inked first with the same DI's and sprayed with the Moonglow then over stamped using a holly image by Magenta and white and blue chalk ink.
The snowflakes were inked before layering and given a bit of twinkle with Frosted Lace Stickles.
The winter word is Hero Arts stamped in StazOn Jet Black.

Well Miss Doodle will be here for her first day with grandma tomorrow and I just can't wait. Hopefully I will get chance to road test the pushchair........I've nearly worn out the kitchen!!!
I'm just off now to plan her mini menu for the week. She's a bit of a gourmet so she'll keep me on my toes there.

Thanks for your visit.
