Ho, Ho, Ho!!

WOW!! I haven't been on for such a long time due to things that had to be done!! SORRY!!

This image is for the High Hopes Stamps Challenge #54. Santa is coming down the chimney!
I colored the images of Santa and the presents with Copic pens; and trimmed around the circle template from Nestabilities, leaving part of the image outside of the circle. Artificial snow with glitter was used on the roof. Copic #B000 was used to add some color to the rim of the circle. Ribbon used around the top of the card is a sheer white ribbon with some glitter in it. The green ribbon used was used to accentuate the green in the Basic Grey Designer Paper behind the image.

Inside of the card, I kept snowy scenes. The Designer Paper is Basic Grey. On the upper section, I put white CS, with the snow with glitter on it. I continued to use the artificial snow on the trees that were punched out of dark green CS. The paper on this square has small images of Santa with a reindeer on it, along with images of children dressed for cold weather.

The paper used in the lower square has a winter scene of houses with Christmas trees and bare trees. The quote is a High Hopes quote. Paper behind the quote was punched with the Martha Stewart "loopy" punch.

Stay warm and enjoy!!
