Vintage Santa

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 193 - Imamuttnut. I chose to CASE Laurie's WATERCOLOR TRIO THANK YOU. I love the layout and it worked perfect for my image. I changed the colors and theme and replaced the oval sentiment with some punched ferns topped with red gems to simulate holly and berries.
I colored this darling image up last Saturday when Shannon was over here and have been trying to find a way to use it. Today was the perfect chance especially since it might just be my LAST chance to upload for a whole week.
I will be in Boston for training and so far from my supplies (insert pout here). I will be in DT's by Tuesday at the latest. I have to stamp every day.
OK onto today's creation. I colored this "VINTAGE SANTA" digital image from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITIAL LINE using copics then applied some stickles to the brim and ball of the hat and to his sleeves. I just think they should sparkle. This fabulous image can be yours for free with a $20 purchase so go shopping and get yours now.
I bought this darling ribbon almost a month ago and today finally was able to use it. Can you believe it? Just 1 challenge? Well I did turn a year older yesturday. LOL. Ya know it seems like after I hit 50 that hill I had been climbing turned into the slickest snow slope you could image and I am on a downward fast track. Things that go bump in the night have turned into things that go POP in the night, my back and knees when I get up. LOL.

Christmas is really coming isn't it? I can feel it. And this card is really beautiful. I have always loved Santa.
