Here Comes Santa Claus...


Well it was a boring day in the life of the Rubbermaid so she decided to just sit with her fancy cup of coffee and stamp, stamp, stamp. Dang I was really bored! We had a dark dreary day and I felt like instead of blogging about my life I needed to get one. My friends are leaving the area and heading to the heat belt and the closest thing to heat for me, is to sit on my heating pad and dream. I know I sound bitter...well so what if I am?? My buddy Ray is heading to Atlanta and then on to California and where am I going you ask??? Nowhere that's where and so I hit the rubber to the ink and stamp. This Santa is a Flourishes set and golly do I ever love this guy. He's a big fella and requires a larger size card but he does make up so nicely. I used some walnut distress ink to get the tone I wanted and colored ever so lightly and little. My phrase is Impression Obsession and I got my paper Fancy Pants in Montana and it made for a perfectly lovely background for the fat man. Added a snipet of ribbon and I'm done. So tonight it's time for Desperate Housewives and those ladies ( and I use the phrase ever so loosely) are even more deaperate then I am. Happy new week and I'll be back too soon for words.

Aw, I wish I could give you a big fat hug, Pat! And a plane ticket to somewhere tropical!!! Don't let things get you down... keep making us all laugh with your wonderful humor, OK?

Fabulous card! That Santa is such a classic image, and your simple, elegant design is perfect!

awww, this is really cute! I love the paper you used. It's unusual(since most of other people use green or red) and I LOVE it :)

This is just gorgeous mom! Don't you love that Santa guy? He is the jollyiest Santa I think I've ever seen! Glad you had some nice stamping time. I quilted today -- well, actually I just cut fabric to be able to quilt! That's my project this week. I love the thought!

Talk soon Ma Mere!

What a fun, jolly Santa card! I love the light touch of color on this - it's perfect for the image!
I'd invite you to PA but unfortunately we'll be having cold weather soon enough as well. Today the SUN actually made an appearance!! Just keep thinking warm thoughts and spring will be here before you know it:)

Hi Pat! This is absolutely beautiful! You did such a wonderful job with this Santa image!
You sound a little "down in the dumps" ... I hope tomorrow brings you something to smile about ... but in the meantime, please know you have friends who really care about you and are here to listen! Anytime my friend!

Great job on that Santa! Sorry he's the only good lookin' guy around your place these days. I've pretty much decided it's your own fault. You're too pretty, smart and witty for most men to deal with!
