Greetings Earthlings! I've got some good news to share. I recently tried out for Kenny K's Krafty Krew and made the cut! Woo-hoo! I'm stoked because Kenny K Download's digital stamps really make me smile. They've got attitude and I like that -- probably because I'm loaded with attitude, which is not the same as being full of ----, which I am, albeit infrequently.

My other news is that I've discovered why Santa Claus is so darned jolly! Nope. It's not booze or pharmaceuticals, though he might use caffeine for his epic ride Christmas Eve. Negatory. This card will show you the real reason for Santa's jollyness.

Here you thought Vixen was a reindeer. Certain parts of her are definitely reindeeresque. (Yes. Another new word. Dig it!). But the rest of her? She's all woman and that's why Santa is so very jolly. Mrs. Claus, well, she's got a certain elf friend, if you know what I mean. **wink**

On Vixen was printed on Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers, which I'll list below. I used Mega Rectangles Nestabilities to die cut her, then added Viva Decor Hologram Iridescent Glitter Liner around the edges to add some serious glitter.

The patterned paper is from Winter Wishes 6x6 pad by Echo Park. This pad contains some fabulous aquas, blues, purples, grays, and whites. All edges were coated with a layer of Pearl Paint Dabber, which I also used to paint the very old chipboard arrow from Deluxe Designs. Remember them? I added Glitter sticker letters by Making Memories to the arrow when it was dry.

Memory Box/Poppy Stamps' Frostyville Border and Frostyville Corner were used to cut metallic white cardstock.

The rest of the sentiment was computer generated.

Thanks for visiting today.

    Love this card!

  6. I'll add my congrats, again, to the multitude you are receiving. ;^) (I don't want to feel left out.) Oh, btw, you are definitely full of attitude, if that's what you are choosing to call it today.
    My goodness, I nearly had to cover my eyes to look at this card. Has Santa no shame? Is he just another man? I am so disappointed in him. And in his naughty wife, too. An elf, the very idea. Pffffffffffft!
    I must admit, you did a wonderful job of coloring up this vamp, uh, Vixen. And I do love your gorgeous colors, which she so does not deserve. Also, this is a pretty fantastic design, what with those fab die cuts, & all. I just can't get over the very idea of her with Santa. Deeply, deeply troubling.
    Sending you hugs anyway,

  7. Beautiful card! Love the soft colors and beautiful snowy details! Thanks for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!
