Father Christmas

I got this stamp from Stamp Francisco a couple of years ago and I love it, I love vintage Santa's!! This is my first attempt at cracked glass, I didn't have any UTE so I had to use my regular clear EP it took 10 coats!! I thought is was never going to take.....LOL!

Today's Way To Use It challenge was to use velvet, well i have been sitting on this velvet paper for over two years, it is gorgeous paper in real life not too sure if the photo captured how pretty it really is. This paper was left over from our wedding invitations, I wish I had more of it, but I have never been able to find it again.

Well my sister did phone last night and............ the ultrasound and Mammogram showed no cause for concern.........whew......... her doctor will get the full report and her blood work next week but as far as the techs were concerned there is no cause for concern. Thank you for all who prayed and kept her in your thoughts, it has meant the world to us God is good.

Supplies: Santa from Stamp Francisco, Bravo Burgundy, River rock, VV card stock, Velvet DP, Bravo burgundy, River Rock ink, Brads, Ticket corner punch, Ribbon, Clear EP, Holly leaves and Berry brads, Stickles, and Dimesionals.
