Santa Was Here!

Well not really hehe .... much too earlier for Santa to come yet. I know that down in Australia we are a little ahead of you guys in the Northern Hemisphere time wise but not that far ahead hehe!
And to be honest I am not ready for him to come yet are you??

This card is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge and I got to use my new nestabilities dies that arrived on Friday .... yahhhhhhhhh I have been waiting for these for ages as I am sure lots of other people have too. I am soooooo lucky I pre ordered these because with the downturn in the financial scene that has meant our dollar has devalued down here against the US dollar which means these dies have almost doubled in price yikes!!!!!!!!!!! Lucky I was able to get them for the original price!

I used the labels 2 nestabilites to cut out the owl image. I embossed the olive card using the ornament cuttlebug embossing folder. The circle sentiment is one of the downloadable stamps from The Cutting Cafe ... this one is one of the 1 inch ones, I thought it went well with this cute Santa Owl!

Recipe:
Stamps: Owl - Penny Black; Sentiment - The Cutting Cafe
Paper: White; Real Red & Old Olive - SU; DP - Making Memories
Other: Black Ink; So Saffron SU Ink; Label 2 Nestabilities; Ornament Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; White Gel Pen; Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Red Brads; Foam Tape; Copics
