Mojo Monday meets santa claus!

I've used this weeks sketch over at Mojo Monday to make another christmas card to add to my growing (not quickly enought though) christmas card box.

I stamped the Santa Collage image onto both white CS and acetate. I coloured the image on the white CS and then layed the acetate over the top, attaching with blue eyelets with my cropodile. I also added glitter glue on top of the acetate to the snowflakes and some of his beard. In retrospect maybe I should have put it under the acetate, oh well! Matted onto silver mirri card. Background paper is from dovecraft winter wonderland pack. I embossed some white CS with the snowflakes folder and matted again onto silver mirri card. I stamped the see D's sentiment onto the CS before I embossed it but used the debossed side so the sentiment was more prominent / readable. The snowflake felt embellishment is one of the larger one's out of the snowflake embellishement pack I got from The Range for 99p!

Well I'm off the fat fighters (weight watchers) tonight and I am hoping I have managed to lose 1.5 lb's this week, because if so I will have lost 2 stone so far! I've only 12 lbs left to lose to get to my goal weight (hopefully by christmas!). So please keep your fingers crossed for me!

Hugs, Vicky x

Wow Vicky, this is fabulous. What a great stamp, love the colours you have used.

I used promarkers to colour in Rugby Hamish. I was into Funkykits today and Karen is now back from Hobbycrafts in Glasgow and she said today that all the DT stamps have now been sent - so hopefully they should be with you tomorrow or the day after I would think.

Ooh, I have this image now. Hope I can make it look as pretty as this!

Hope WW went well. I've just re-started 'fat club' after 6 years off it. On the upper scale of a size 12 at the mo but have to put a stop to it here as it's a slippery slope from here on! Problem is, I've forgotten all of the things I used to eat to trick my brain into thinking it was eating lovely things. Any top tips?! ~x~

I'm really not a fan of christmas cards Vicki, but i do like this one. Has a vintage feel to it. Lovely.
