Christmas Card #3

Onto card number 3 ....
This one was for Sheree and Trevor ... the last of our "trivia" friends
Both Gray and I have known Trevor for over 20 years after working together never thinking all those years ago that would all end up such a big part of each other's lives :D
You just never know where and when wonderful friendships will begin ...

I chose to colour Gorjuss Girl Sent With Love by Suzanne Woolcott .... I knew I had this old "Dear Santa" stamp that I bought from a local bargain shop for a couple of dollars and thought it would go perfectly with this stamp for a Christmas card :D

I used my copics of course and I really like how this card came together ... the colouring took longer than putting the card itself together lol.  I decided to distress all the papers and to run Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink over everything, including the fussy cut stamp to give an 'aged' look ... this was much more evident in real life and I have to say this is probably one of my favourite cards this year.

Well, I hope I'm not boring you too much with all my postings ... I think I might only have 1 or 2 more worthy of blogging so will get them on in a little while.

Hope you are enjoying your boxing day wherever you are and that Santa was generous to you.

Until my next post
