Super fast delivery

Hello crafting friends!

I do have enough Christmas cards now but I just can't resist joining in with the challenges! And, as I read today, they'll always come in handy for Christmas 2020! Here's a very quick, one layer card snuck in for the fun of it:


Look - it's Santa! He's not dilly-dallying about either - he's got presents to deliver! In fact, I'm rather hoping one of his parcels might be distress inks for me so that I can get a smoother blend on my backgrounds!


After positioning a circle mask punched out of a sticky note, I sponged some Night of Navy ink gently over the top of the card base. After removing the mask to reveal the moon, I wiped the card with an embossing buddy, stamped the greeting (from Uniko's Pure Florals Poinsettia) with versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I added 'stars' with a versamark pen and silver-embossed those too before stamping Santa and his reindeer (from Stampin' Up's retired Holiday Home) with Memento black ink.

CHALLENGES
It was AAA Cards that lured me into playing along today with their Along The Edge challenge with optional Time Travel twist. And isn't Santa the original time traveller?!


AND IN OTHER NEWS
There's no dilly-dallying for me either today! I'm just about to whisk my little dog out for a walk and then it's off to the station to collect my youngest son and there's a whole host of other things to do... Now, if only I had a magic sleigh...!

How are you getting on with your holiday preparations? Are you on top of everything? Or are you having a week-before-Christmas panic? Let me know won't you - and don't forget to breathe!

Hugs,
