Naughty List

I can't believe it's the first Thursday of November already! Have you started making your Christmas cards yet? 

I have some done but when I saw this sentiment I knew I had to have it to use on a card for one my brothers. This is the first one I have used it on....I think you may just see it on a few of my Christmas cards this year. <wink>

I have also used an older High Hopes Stamp called "Santa's List". 

A new month also means a new challenge and this month we also have a sketch to get your creative juices flowing. I have made this week's card using the sketch (below). 

After colouring Santa and his list with alcohol markers I added some Stickles to the fur on his coat, hat and mitts and then cut him out with a stitched square die. I stamped my sentiment and coloured the words with Spectrum Sparkle pens - they are glittery but it's hard to see in the photo.
I cut out my tag and added a die cut word notes - cause Santa does keep notes..or so I'm told......... 
All of these elements are added to patterned paper from Carta Bella. Some ribbon and sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.
