Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!

Hello and hope you all are enjoying the week! It is a Blog Hop at Artistic Outpost and we are still showing off the October New Release, Vintage Fashion, Go Team and Toy Emporium, which is my choice for today! Visit the rest of the DT for more fabulous AO inspiration!

As soon as I saw this adorable Santa, I knew I had to have him in view through a Christmas decorated window. The window frame was cut twice once from chipboard painted red and then another from green card stock using Tim's die and then decorated with lights. The background paper is from the Winter Collection at ODBD and was inked over in Fired Brick and Pine Needles, clear sealed and the using a toothbrush added a little snowy effect with white acrylic paint.
The images were stamped in Black Archival and colored with Stampin Up chalks, markers and Distress Antique Linen and Pine Needles.
Thank you for joining in on today's blog hop and have a wonderful day!

I am in fear of over-using this word but it is the first word that popped into my head, "nostalgia". There is a lovely warm, nostalgic glow to this beautiful card. Really love the idea of the window.
