Hello Friends

Happy Australia Day to my fellow Aussies. I hope you are enjoying your day off.


I made a card for Jingle Belles challenge #4 and am almost too late to post it. The challenge this week was to use the following colours.




I hit a blank wall with this one and it was my DH that suggested a summer santa. So here he is.




I found this image online, converted it to black and white and then printed it out, twice on white cardstock and once on the flower patterned paper. (The shirt and the hand holding the drink are both paper pieced). The grass is a stamp from Practicing Creativity and the image was coloured with my Crayola pencils. Sentiment is Hero Arts.


Thanks so much for looking.
