Blue Christmas

Hi There
Hope the weather is treating you well, summer has arrived here.  It's gotten very warm.  We have really been spoiled thus far.  Although we aren't setting any records it feels like we are.  When you're hot, you're hot.

As I said before I LOVE Father Christmas.  I've got a small collection I look forward to bringing out ever Christmas, like seeing old friends.  One of my favorites wears a blue velvet coat and hat.  He inspired me to watercolor my lovely stamp again.  This time I used my pencils and paint brush with water instead of a blender pen.  I added some Crayola glitter glue to the fur on his coat.  Layered on to Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and on to my card base and rounded all corners.  The gems and ribbon are from my stash.

Have an Amazing Weekend
