Magnolia v Stampavie Week 5 "Follow the Sketch"

Here is a quick card I nade last night using the sketch over on Magnolia v Stampavie. So on first glance you may be thinking "Hey...he is by High Hopes"...and you would of course be correct.....however I have used a Magnolia sentiment....so I believe I am covered. This was a quick one as I was so busy last night trying to get through my "To Do" list. So back to the card, I coloured Santa with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Ruby (Santa Hat)
Pastel Blue (Shadow)
Ice Grey 1(Highlights on hat & beard)
The papers are K&Co "Peppermint Twist" & KI Memories "Holiday Collection 2006". I have used my nestabilities to cut the circle and scalloped circle for Santa, Magnolia "Santa is Coming" stamp for part of the sentiment, and I have finished off with 3 gems and some Bazzill tulle (can you tell I love this stuff...the bows always look so fab!). I also used another sentiment stamp, the "Ho Ho Ho" is part of a clear set by Hampton Arts.

Last night I managed to clear one of the jobs from my "To Do" list...they 30 keyrings for the School Christmas Bazaar are all packaged ready to be sold. I also made 3 of the little gifts that I am hoping to sell there, so now I am up to 5 sets made. I don't intend to make hundreds.....maybe just 25....time permitting.

I have stayed off work today as my chest is feeling terrible...I really am concerned that if I don't take care of myself I will end up with Pneumonia again....and I don't want that on the run up/during the holidays.

Hope everyone is having a fab day, preparing for the holidays etc.
