Holly Jolly Santa...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
The week is coming to an end again and I
can't wait to craft this weekend!
I have a few projects I've been wanting to make!

In the mean time, I'm gonna share Holiday Card #5 with you!!

I recently got my Second Set of Distress Oxides and wanted to play with them
so I pulled out a Stampin' Up Circle Stencil (Seasonal Decorative Masks) and grabbed
some fun colors - Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Fired Brick - 
After getting the stenciling done, I used the 
Pierced Chain Design Die by Gina Marie - Once that was
completed I decided to Spritz on 
my Favorite Shimmer Sparkle Spray (Imagine Crafts) 
to make my card shine!! 

While I was on vacation I brought my Zig Real brush
water color pens and a stack of stamped images to color.. and this adorable
Santa from Craftin Desert Diva's (Retired Holiday Helpers set) made the cut!
I then added the sentiment, Heat Embossed it, to make it stand out

I then die cut some banners from Lawn Fawn in Doodlebug Designer Papers
attached them to the card front, popped it up with some Fun Foam
After it was all said and done. I added some Glitter Nuvo Drops in
Ruby Slippers, & Sunlit Meadow. Attached some Bitty Clear Gems &
some Ice Cube Jewels

The inside has a sentiment from Scrappy Moms called (Merry & Bright)

I always bring a craft along on vacations for downtime and travel time. Nowadays it's mostly knitting, since that's so portable and I found I can do it in the car without getting car sick! :)

This is adorable, and a fun reminder of your Hawaii trip!
