the accidental christmas card

so today i set out to make a birthday card for my mom! (her birthday is tomorrow, whoops!)
instead, i accidentally made two christmas cards!!! ha ha!! does that ever happen to you?!

anyway, by the time i got to the 2nd card i made, i was definitely out of 'birthday' spirit! the christmas spirit was here to stay! lol! so i decided to dive right in and make it using the latest sketch from paper smooches sparks designer drafts!

fun, right?
so here's my card!

i used paper smooches stamps 'forest whimsy' and 'joyful greetings' to create this card! i paper pieced 'santa' and made the rim of his hat sparkly! ooo! ahh!

i just LOVE the paper i used for this card. since i knew i was going to make a santa man, i used this paper that is basically the 'twas the night before christmas' story. LOVE thaT!! and it gets better! you know how that story talks about his belly shaking like a bowlful of jelly...? well i made santa shake! i used an action wobble! ha ha! i crack myself up!

the ribbon is some puffy snowbally ribbon for the trib that  thought was just a perfect touch to this card. :)
back to your (crafty?) weekend!! i have to get back at it and figure out an actual birthday card! lol!
