Jolly Christmas is Back!!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

I do hope your weekend has got off to a better start than mine!

I think I tired myself out last night painting The Beans room while they slept over at their Grandparents and then when that was done we had 2 BIG boy single beds to assemble. I think we finished up at about 11:30 pm !!

Then today I feel like I have spent the day doing errands, only to find frustrating obstacles everywhere I went. To top the day off I have just discovered a leak from our en-suite toilet and it dripping through the ceiling into the playroom. This calls for some R&R and GIN!

On a positive note, The Beans LOVE their new BIG boy beds and are tucked up fast asleep. My FIL has been round and hopefully fixed the leak too – fingers crossed all stays well overnight!

ANYWAY… enough of all my woes! I am SUPER excited that Jolly Christmas is now back in stock – YAY! He was the only sell out from the October Release and now he is back I am itching to share more using him, like I have on the card…

On Thursday I took a trip out to our local Crafters Companion store with a friend and I was super happy to finally get my hands on some Simply White Gloss Nuvo Drops 🙂 plus a few other colours! I’d seen Yana Smakula’s card HERE using them as a snowy background and had to give it a go.

I’ve used Prismacolor Pencils to colour my Jolly Santa in and added Stampin’ Up! Glitter to the bobble & brim of his hat, along with the cuffs of his coat. The sentiment is a favourite of mine from Simply Said Christmas. I used the current Freshly Made Sketches layout for my card seen HERE and below.

I had a lovely crafternoon on Thursday making cards to share with all the restocks that arrived in the studio this week. Lots of popular clear stamps are back in store including, Background Builders: Seeing Stars, Birthday Sentiments, I LOVE Coffee, Kindness Blooms and So Much. I will be sharing my cards over the coming days 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!
