Good Morning Everyone,

As it's the 1st of the month it's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Forum Christmas challenge and we would like to see a project featuring Santa this time.

This is my card using a Wild Rose Studio stamp, which I've coloured with copics. Whilst sticking the card together I had a real disaster in that somehow I managed to get some glue on the original sentiment and with it being in metallic ink, which doesn't seem to dry as well as normal ink, it smeared terribly when I tried to get it off.  I could have cried and, after all the colouring I'd done, which I was quite happy with,  I couldn't start again.  So I've had to mess about making a stitched rectangle, which wasn't a standard size,  to cover the offending sentiment and re-stamp it.  I stamped two small holly sprigs from another set and added tiny pearls for the berries.  It's not a bad recovery, but I was really pleased to have stamped the sentiment on the same piece as the image then that happened!  I've added gold mirri card and the card itself is red so I've added a die cut shape inside which is the same shape as the gold mirri.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Lynne, your card is the sweetest. When I first looked at it I thought, Santa must be worn out after delivering all those packages and now it's time for him to enjoy Christmas. Very nice....very happy card.

It just shows how you can rescue a card when we need too. I'm always doing something and getting in a mess.... so frustrating isn't it but I would never have known anything had happened as your card is adorable. It is so cute and fun. Fab stamping. Love it. Hugs xx

Hi, Lynne! What a fun image! Looks like this Santa's had about as much merriment as he can take. LOL And, that's one great sentiment save. I would've never known had you not spilled the proverbial beans. :)
