Merry Christmas

Hello Fellow Crafters;

Hump day is here again, and another week will soon be over.  This also means that school is approaching in approximately two weeks, which also means that we are approaching the end of the month.

For my last post of this month, I have used a Stampendous stamp called “Classic Santa“.  I used Polar White Flower Soft for the trim on Santa’s hat, and sleeve cuffs as well as on the bear’s hat. The clear Zig of Wink of Stella was used to go over Santa’s bag as well as the black image around the Santa image.
