Last giveaway of 2009

Hi everyone! Today is the last day for a giveaway this year! I've made a little stand up Christmas frame instead of a card!


(click to enlarge)

The gold frame is something I peeled off of an old store bought Christmas card. I stamped the new little Santa Claus that Bonita Jones has drawn for Squigglefly. It's not in the store right now, but I think it's due to be released this Saturday. I think it's just adorable; he looks like a little gnome!

I printed him out and colored him with copic markers. Then I added snow tex to his hat and flower soft on his beard. I applied a lot of layers of flower soft to get it thick, and then I had to draw his mustache line back in.

I punched some photo corners out of some green Christmas paper and used some snow flake dies and punches in the corner. I backed it with green velvet paper and glued on a stand so it stands up! Cute Christmas decor, huh?

If you'd like to win this, just leave a comment and tomorrow afternoon random.org will pick someone to receive it.

I am keeping this short because if you are as busy as I am these days you don't have to time to read a lot on blogs these days! Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
