Love this Santa!

I love this guy! He is just so happy! This is an image from makeitcrafty and I was going to enter it into a challenge at http://dcdchristmasclub.blogspot.com/2010/12/challenge-46-santas-sack.html which is to use a santas sack on your card. But then I realized this santa has no sack! Oh well, still love him and I can always use an extra christmas card.They have a bunch of charms up for grabs and I always like the look of those when people hang them from ribbon so thought I meant enter and see what happens but I guess ebay it is instead. This is some SEI paper called kris kringle with some mariannes creatables snowflakes (thanks for the die Elaine!) and some more of those crystal poinsettia buttons in the center. The green ribbon running up the center I found at Joanns and you are suppose to iron it on but my atg gun worked just fine thank you very much. I have also found the best glue to attach my stamped images when I have something lumpy, like ribbon, behind it. It is called Yes glue and comes in a big jar. I have found it at Michaels and although it is around $10 with a 40% off coupon it isn't a bad price at all and it is a pretty big jar. Plus this stuff is thick so it raises the image up nicely instead of using pop dots and it STICKS! I love my atg gun but found that I had to bend the stamped image to get it to go over the ribbon and that just looks really bad so try this stuff out if you are looking for something to help raise your images up. Ok, psyching myself up for Monday!
