A Lawn Fawn Santa Christmas Card

The days are seriously flying by!  Another week has some how managed to come and go and I don't know where it went!  So I suffered another small wave of disappointment with the official Jillibean soup annountment this morning, but...

I was super excited to open my mailbox on Wednesday and find the November/December issue of Paper Crafts Magazine in my mailbox.  Why you may ask?  Well, I couldn't wait to see my first card published on page 29!  It's my first card in this particular magazine and it is so much fun to see my name in print (and spelled correctly I might add).

Here's my card in case you don't happen to have the magazine.  ;)

For this card I had a major light bulb moment when I realized the cute gnome from Lawn Fawn's Gnome Sweet Gnome set could become an adorable Santa with a little masking and the addition of a Santa Hat from Lawn Fawn's Hats Off To You set.  Love when things just fall together like that.  :)
Other supplies used:
My Mind's Eye 12 days of Christmas 6x6 pad
Stampendous Merry Messages Sentiment Stamp
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Versafine Onyx Black
Copic Markers
Basic Grey Green Button
American Crafts Red Button
The Twinery Baker's Twine
DMC white floss
Spellbinders circle & scalloped circle dies
We R Memory Keepers corner chomper

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great weekend!  Check back next week for more news and some of my unseen Jillibean projects.  :)
