Yes.... I'm alive!

Hi all! Hope all is well in your corner of the world! If you couldn't tell, I have been a bit scarce lately! Work and kids home for the summer are really taking most of my time and rightly so. I just laughed today. You know it's bad when your mom wonders when you are going to post next! She called and said - You haven't posted since last Monday... what's up?? Gotta love moms! :-)

Well, with CHA in full swing, I thought I'd show off some more of the goodies that will soon be available over at Impression Obsession. In fact, this card here is sitting in the IO booth as we speak! Isn't it funny how my cards get to travel the world but... not me! Oh well... maybe someday!

This cutie patootie is part of both a clear set and also available on rubber and is designed by one of IO's newest illustrators - Sarah Phelps. She really pulled out all the stops for the holidays and has created some darling images featuring whimsical witches, ghosts, snowmen, reindeer and this jolly man-- Santa!

The mechanics of my card are rather simple. I stamped my Santa with permanent black ink and colored him up with Copic markers in shades of green and red. Add some fun decorative paper (SU), a little mini sentiment, a decorative punch border and some great ribbon and... almost done! Because I wanted to add a bit of glitz for a true holiday flair, I did go over some of the parts with some Copic Spica glitter pens.

See?Just an FYI... I'm told these stamps will be up in the store August 1st! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a double dose of challenges. One that is full of fun - the other has a prize on the line - so you won't want to miss out!

See you then!
