Santa with tree christmas card and a Shoe in Purple card

Today is day 5 at  Bugaboo Second Annual Holiday Chaos they have a HUMOROUS CHRISTMAS CARD as theme, I made this card using BUGABOO Image:

I stamped the background (white paper) with blue ink and the snowflakes stamp background from Pink Cat Studio and the place that empty I stamped with snowlake from Hero Arts (the tiny stamp). Image colored with copic markers, and the Sentiment also from Pink Cat Studio.

For the hat from Santa I put again my Pop Corn pen.

I love the face of this Santa, so cute and so happy, dont you think so too? :)

Challenges for my card:

The Crafters Cafe #94: Christmas/Holiday Season

The Craft Place: Christmas

The Male Room: Christmas 

Stampavie and More #226: Snowflakes 

Inspired By Stamping #88: The color challenge


I made this card for my lovely friend Lisa...she loves purple much, her Blog named The Purple Place.  

First (after I stamped and colored the shoe), I covered (with post it) the white area and then started to sponging my card with two different purple distressed ink

Because Lisa love purple so much (like me :-)  LOL) also I only put Purple color plus white on this card. The ''bling'' also purple in three different size. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

Hope you will like my card dear Lisa :)

Challenge for my second card:

Sweet Stamps #199: Sparkle

Shopping Our Stash #180: Favorite Technique (My Favorite Technique this time is: sponging at my card )
