Vintage Santa

I got this vintage Santa face on a PIF thread on SCS and I just love him. He is very simple, he is stamped in chocolate and all I did was layer on Real Red cardstock that was put throught the CB plate. Then I put some stickles on the snowflakes, added some ribbon and a little joy tag. This tag is acrylic and I used stazon on it- reminds me of the shrinky dink. I made this following the Stampsomething challenge thread. Turns into a nice vintage card, I think.



To kind of go along with the vintage look I thought I would show you this card. Now this is not my sketch, I got it from someone else (can't recall who though) but loved it. I got the Winter Post set that is in the new SU Mini and it is so versatile, vintage and FUN! I thought I would never use the reindeer and look- here he is! I wanted it for the post card saying and the santa postmark, love them both!

Okay- and an update on the 16 yr old thing! OMG- he passed the road test this week and he now has a drivers license! What am I suppose to do now? Should I let him drive? I am freaking out ladies............. he is a good driver, I do not mind driving with him but now, let him leave in the car on his own? Oh, I do not think so- there is so much that can happen to him. I never thougth I would feel like this.......

Oh and I am leaving for San Diego this afternoon and I have nothing planned ahead for you gals so I will not post again until Monday. I wish I had more time to plan- if I do, I will. I have a feeling there is a need for some Halloween Blog Candy- what do you think?
