The Joy of Giving Release

Thanksgiving is almost upon us and that means Christmas is right around the corner.  Sassy Studio Designs is releasing some amazing new Christmas images.  This lovely lady is called Santa Pinup.  I absolutely love this image.  I wish I looked like this.  I have blond hair and I love green but that's about it. 

The challenge we were given was Vintage Shabby Chic.  My first thought was no bright colors, which is a hard one for me.  I LOVE bright colors.  My next thought was green as it is my favorite color.  When I think about something shabby I think of an old rickety fence so I used a fence punch on the brown paper.  I colored Santa with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals.  I used distress ink on all the papers.  The lovely gems are from some fabulous blog candy I received from Kim.  She sent me some really wonderful things.  Thanks Kim.  

For this release SSD is not doing a blog hop.  But that doesn't mean we don't have prizes.  Make sure you head over to Sassy Studio Designs and check out all the details.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
