My Coolest Friend!

I'm trying to sneak in a few more Christmas cards.  Wow it's almost here!    I'm trying to wrap up some of my posts for the week because I still haven't made any cookies and I'm being accused of enjoying my bloggie time more than my family time.  At least the blog doesn't talk back and leave empty pop cans and food wrappers laying around.  The Mountain Dew drinker in my house knows who I'm talking about.  (Had to clarify so I don't get Mr. J on the defensive!)   

Just a quick card today for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. This week is anything goes.  I stamped some snowflakes from "Fresh Snow" with versamark ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Next I blended a rainbow of distress ink for an aurora borealis background for my cool Santa!  A glitter snow border and a simple sentiment and I'm done.  

 I hope your ready for the big day.  Just a few more things on my list... groceries for Christmas dinner, and BAKING!!!   LOL!  










Supplies Used:  Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"
Stamps:  Paper Smooches Santa Paws, Swanky Snowdudes, Fresh Snow
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic, Versafine Onyx Black Ranger Distress Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves
Glitter
