Snowy Santa

A while ago I had the bright idea of putting all my Christmas sentiment stamps together, thinking it would be handy to have them all in one place.  Now, can someone please tell me WHERE I put them, it's driving me crazy trying to find them! Grrr!

This Santa is from High Hopes latest release ... Santa's Gift.  Coloured with pencils and lots of sparkle added to his fur trims.  I also used some of my old snowball ribbon that I kept forgetting to use up last year! - and because I had a bit of a sticky situation when my glue blobbed out from behind the ribbon, I just fired on some more glue and then added more white flowersoft ... love how it turned out just like a wee snowdrift :)

  1. Oh, Lynne, I feel your pain! I recently re-organised my sentiment stamps by subject (instead of having them all in one box) and can I find the ones i want? Can I heck! Re-re-organisation is on the cards!!

    Your Santa card is gorgeous, what a cute image!

  2. Ooh, love all the sparkle on your Santa. He is cute, cute. I like your little snow drift, too.

    I really feel for you looking for your sentiments. I spent last Sunday afternoon until I went to bed looking for my Gelli plate. I found it today...probably in one of the first places I looked. I saw the container it was in but thought it was just an empty container as it is clear just like the container. I sure hope you find your sentiments soon. I know the aggravation.

  14. Very cute! Love that snowball trim and the additional flower soft looks perfect! A fortunate accident. And I'm sure your sentiments are all in a safe place where you knew you would remember them, right? That's how it always happens. Thanks for playing with CSAYL and CHNCC2.
