Have a Holly Jolly Christmas


This has to be THE jolliest snowman stamp around!    It’s Daper Dan Snowman  from High Hopes Stamps, now in stock at 7 Kids College Fund  – but they’re going fast!    

I used this week’s awesome sketch from Splitcoast for my card and just flipped it.



Since this is image is named Daper Dan, I thought he should have a bit more of a formal attire!   So, I paper pieced his vest and umbrella.  All the DP used for this card is from the Little Yellow Bicycle Sharon Ann Christmas Magic Collection.

I also attached a REAL bow for his bowtie.   The holly leaves are from a string of these that I purchased from my local scrapbook store and I added some red pearls from  Kaisercraft.   The handkerchief in his pocket is the top of one of the holly leaves!   

I also added some  Stickles in gold  for the tips of his umbrella, stardust for the outer edges of Dan and icicle  for the snow on the ground.   I even used some Pumpkin orange Smooch paint  for his carrot nose.   His buttons are some black flat-back beads that I had in my stash.      Here’s a closeup view showing all the little embellishments:


Whew.  I think that it!    Thanks for dropping in today – I appreciate it!

On the 5th Day of Christmas … shopping


…my true love sent to me 5 golden rings.

When Tab from 7 Kids  thinks of gold, she thinks of the gold standard; when she thinks of the gold standard, she thinks of the gold standard of cuteness; and when she thinks of the gold standard of cuteness, she thinks of MAGNOLIA, of course!!!
