He's Checking His List....

A bit less than two weeks away.... are you ready???  I'm not quite ready, but almost.  Christmas will be here and, as always, I WILL be ready!  Isn't it funny how it comes the same time every year and yet... or so it seems... people are just rushing and fretting and scurrying along to get it ALL done???!!  I don't know why others feel the "rush" of the season but "I" know for me... I hate buying my kids gifts to early.  I mean you know how kids can be, right???  Sure they want something NOW... but will they want it in ohhh three months when Christmas shopping begins??? Or, is it really necessary to wait for the sale catalog and ads to come out.  Because you can bet if you bought something two months before Christmas, chances are... it WILL be in the sale ads.  *sigh*  So for a mom buying for kids... sometimes it's just best to wait.  I know.. doesn't help with the stress, but, in the end... I KNOW they will want something when it comes at Christmas and quite possibly even be less straining on my budget.  Ya know???  ;-)

My adorable little Santa is, of course, a Magnolia stamp.  I'm pretty sure I got it LAST Christmas release but never took the time to ink it up.  And... I think I got kind of "intimidated" with the red and black Copic coloring.  Not so much anymore since I went through Suzanne Dean's Copic classes!  I am STILL in awe at her teaching skills and all the awesome information she gave us.  Hee

I stamped my image and cut him out... adhering him with Pop Dots.  My card base is Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock and I layered on some Sweet Corn.  I added some DP and a row of buttons for my Santa to perch upon.  My sentiment is from the "Wishing You Joy" Stamp TV kit.

I hope your holiday duties are going smoothly and that you don't get to stressed over any of it.  The holidays should be fun... family time... memory making and full of good surprises.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! *smile*
