A Weekend Scraping Retreat and Some Time with the Internet

I have a quick moment with computer access so I wanted to upload a couple of the cards that I made this weekend at Ruth Mountain Inn in Arab (big "A" pronounced with a long "a" sound and has emphasis on the 1st syllable), AL. Being short on time I will describe the weekend in one word for now "Wonderful!" This cute Santa is from the awesome PTI collection. I used liquid applique for his beard and white furry trim. His tag is a Cuttlebug die.
The images and sentiment for this card is from Creative Obsession. I colored him using my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol. The sentiment is not attached yet because I wanted to add some of the Queen & Co. mini brads before attaching w/ Stamping Dimensionals. Thanks to everyone for stopping by. Take care!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What gorgeous Christmas cards! Love them both but that Santa is my fave!!! Sorry to hear about your computer problems. My computer and then my modem and then my server and now my computer again have all been giving me problems for the past 3 weeks. So frustrating!

I hope you don't mind...I noticed your comment on Lindsey's blog just above mine when I posted this were asking about the clip it up. I got mine a few weeks ago and it is soooo fabulous if you have lots of embellishments. I could never find mine all. LOL I just got another huge package from Lindsye and now I htink I need another! Yikes! I have no will-power! Have a great day!

Your cards are great! You left a msg. on the Elzybell's Blog re: some ribbon I had used. It is May Arts ribbon...and I see it everywhere! I got mine through A*Muse, but I'm sure you can find some at most craft stores/scrapbook stores.

Good luck!!
