Guide My Sleigh

Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

This month, the High Hopes design team will be creating with a "Christmas In July" theme featuring older Christmas/Winter stamps from High Hopes.
 There are so many fun, cute stamps, it makes making cards easy and fun! The hard part is choosing a favourite!  I will have a head start on my Christmas cards this year! and that is a first! 

Now, on to my card - meet "Santa and Rudy"

Santa and Rudy's Close Up

For this card I used a sketch from a challenge I played along in months ago (posted below). Santa and Rudy are coloured with alcohol markers and glitter was added to Santa's suit for fun. Rudy's nose is a glitter gumdrop - so fun! 
For the sky background I used Distress Ink with an Inkessentials tool and foam pad and inked away. I added some Stickles for stars and a snow bank for them to stand on. The sentiment was created on my computer.
