Calling Santa

Well here we are just seven days or so away from "The Big Day"!!!
And what better time then now to "Call Santa" and make sure he knows
just what you want...lol!!!


That is where my card comes in to play today.....
A wonderful vintage image from Crafty Secrets Vintage Santa digital stamp set!!
Who do you suppose Santa is talking to on the other end of the phone...
could it be YOU telling him to bring more "papercrafts"!!

I especially LOVE vintage Santa images and this one
has that "old" look of a "real" Santa (of course Santa is real)!!!

For this card, I simply printed it in black ink, colored with a few Copics
and highlighted with lots of glitter....
nothing better in my book then vintage and glitter!!


The background paper is from the Crafty Secrets Retro Christmas CD
I added a bow and jingle bell and I have a card all ready to send out!!

Take a peek at the Crafty Secrets blog.
There are always new DT inspiration pieces and good tutorials to tempt you with!!

entering the following challenges:

and
DL.Art .... Santa Claus

Full of traditional seasonal cheer Diane. I think Santa is checking with Mrs Santa to see when dinner will be ready !
