Simple Doodles Guest Designer

For the month of December I was chosen to be a guest designer over on Simple Doodles. Due to family crisis I have been unable to fulfil my obligations up until now and my sincere apologies go to Trish the owner of Simple Doodles. I will try and post regularly from now until the end of the month. Trish has been very generous in providing me with lots of digital images and Santa below is a new image for her. So I decided to play with him as it is the season lol. The red fibre on the side of the card I bought at Spotlight and it has a glittery type look to it which is so groovy for this time of year so I bought a green one as well. Both will be nice on my mini album swap I am doing with a girl in the US. I also ran the edges of the Riding Hood Red cardstock the Versamark pad and then put gold embossing powder on the edges. I have always liked this uneven look and was doing it to my cards about 18 years ago lol. Everything comes back sooner or later do you agree? When I showed a beautiful friend of mine the card for her to critique she said to add in white gel pen the words Ho Ho Ho which I did and I normally have nice handwriting but do you think I could do it nicely for the card?. . . . . NO OF COURSE NOT LOL!! Needless to say I was stuck with it. The designer paper is from SU Ski Slope paper pack which I just love.

Okay I think that is it people. Don't forget to leave comments as I just want to know that there are people out there who visit my blog even though I have been tardy of late, I will try to make up for it.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Michelle, the santa turned out fabulous so no worries about him and the HO HO HO is just the right touch to finish the guy off.
