Checking It Twice

I was making a number of Christmas cards yesterday, so it should come as no surprise that I've got a Christmas themed owl card to show you!

This started off as something completely different in my head, but once I got the Santa suit on him, it just snowballed from there. I've used the adorable mini library clips again (DH loves these!) and although Santa's belt buckle is a little oversized, it looks good, don't you think? Gotta leave room for some expansion after all the milk and cookies!

The Christmas Cocoa designer papers (in the Welcome Christmas bundle with FREE ribbon) were just perfect to match and the sentiment comes from Four the Holidays, expanda-punched with the word window punch. (You know, where the sentiment is too long for the punch, so you slide it in the back of the punch. Leave me a comment if you are not familiar with this and would like a tutorial.)

So back to the card and here he is:

He he! Sooooooo cute! Now you might just want to click on the photo to get a closer look at the Naughty and Nice lists to see where your name is ........!!! LOL! I'm on the Nice list of course! :P

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a good one!
