Cameo santa

Happy day to you!  Another week getting started and lots to do here.  I hope you are finding your day to be a beautiful as mine has started.  I love waking to see DD ready to go and today she is fine form.  She has a chorus audition that she has been preparing for the last several weeks.  Probably longer than that.  Best of all, she never got my icky upper respiratory infection.  That would not have been good at all.  I tried to battle it with over the counter meds but gave in yesterday and visited the doctor.  I am now gulping 2 medications to clear my airways and kick this infection out of my system.  I say kick because I am ready for it be gone.  Nasty dry hacking cough has kept me up too many nights.  Anyhow, where ever you are, whatever you may be doing, I hope  you are well and happy!  :-)
This week at Elizabeth Mae's we are using leaves on our projects.  Any type, so don't restrict yourself!  I love what the designers came up with.  I used Santa Cameo for my project because if you look real close you can see the holly leaves.


I used lighter colors on this because I was attempting a more vintage vibe.  Not sure I achieved this.  I used a MME Lost and Found paper which I stitched minus the thread around the edges.  Next I added two silver Prima holly leaves with grey baker's twine and a red button for the berry of course.  :-)  I stamped a KI Memories sentiment with Hero Arts ink to finish.  I did add white flocking to his hat and white gel pen streaks to his beard. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Amy, this card is so cute. I love how you did the threadless stitching around the card, and the use of the flock. The silver leaves and the button really add to the vintage feel too. Being a newlywed, I know this will be a special Thanksgiving for you. And I hope you feel better soon. Hugs
