Can you seriously believe that Christmas is only 3 weeks away!!! How and when did that happen?!  Better start getting a move on with my many to do and so little time!!

Yesterday I was stuck in the house since my car had a better excuse but to stay in my crafty space, leave the cleaning for another day, and get busy on those cards!

I used the current sketch at Magnolia Down Under as inspiration for my card using this adorable little Santa Edwin:

I was able to use up some old K & Company Christmas paper from two years when I can use up those old scraps!  Little ol' Santa is colored in Copics and then I added some Star Dust stickles to his hat and trim.  There are some Cotton Candy stickles on the snowflake and a touch of Yellow stickles on his little buckle and brass buttons as well.    I stamped the Inkadinkado sentiment in Colorbox Cranberry Pigment Ink to match; and finished it off with some American Crafts twine and a button in my stash :)

I hope you all had a wonderful day today!
