Is Santa on his way to your Holiday Home?

As I was sitting at my desk yesterday, surrounded by my Stampin' Up Christmas stash, I suddenly realised something was missing... my Stampin' Glitter! Yay - let's get the glitter out!  I've gone all arty with it today - come and see:

I think the flying Santa's sleigh image from Holiday Home is just magical and reminds me of all the wonderful Christmas story books I used to read to the children when they were little ones.

To create this wintery scene, I masked off the moon with a punched circle and dragged ink pads over it in various blues.

I used Memento black ink to add Santa and also the tree which I repeatedly stamped to give the impression of a wooded landscape. The trees were dotted with my two way glue pen and sprinkled with glitter.

A nice bright greeting finishes the card - this one is from Making Spirits Bright.

This is the second card I'll be linking up with Less is More this week - they have a gorgeous, icy colour palette to inspire us! I'm also entering 52CCT's Pick a Previous Challenge and have chosen the March 2014 colour combination.

It's Friday *jumps up and down like a loon* and it's time to pick my daughter up from the station! We are going to do baking, decking the halls, crafting (naturally!), shopping, playing with puppies, rustling wrapping paper and keeping secrets... But not necessarily in that order!

See you on Monday
