FWF-Santa Has The Right Idea...

Hi there and happy Friday!  I used this week's sketch challenge over on SCS for my card today.  I pulled out my fab Authentique Wonder DP and my matching Unity stamps(itty bitty Wonder of It) to make this one.  I inked all of the edges of the paper with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress ink.  I used the Fancy Label die from Sizzix for the panel centered in the holy circle and then stamped the images on top.  I tied some May Arts green burlap twine and added a vintage button from my stash.

I LOVE the quote on the postage stamp from this Authentique collection-"Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year."  This makes me giggle every time I read it!  I am sure we all know someone who visiting once a year is MORE than enough! LOL!

I hope you all have a great weekend.  It has been horribly hot, and humid here.  We have been waiting until after 7pm to let the twins go out and play, and it is still nasty!  Will had football camp this week, and they let out early every day because of the heat.

Thanks for stopping by!
