Dancin' St Nick (he moves) + Update


This little Santa (Dancin' St. Nick from Spellbinders) cracks me up because his legs move back and forth! There is a hole in the die for the legs where you put a small piece of adhesive foam and then just make sure to elevate the rest of the card so it gives the legs room to move. Cute and fun. 

After I put him together I added a few flowers just because and popped him up on an embossed background. That embossed background is one of my favorites. It's called Ski Lodge Embossing Folder.  Zsoka Marko designed it for Spellbinders. Zsoka is the talent behind A Pocket Full of Happiness


Update! It's a quiet summer - simply too hot to spend a lot of time outdoors, so plenty of time for stamping and Netflix.

Our house is still under construction and is might be ready by the end of October. We went over last night and saw the new kitchen cabinets. They are a very dark blue/gray - Sherwin Williams Cyberspace. Apparently that's the new thing. In any event, I think I love them but am not sure. This picture was taken around 6 last night and that side of the house faces west, so it's flooded with light. I wonder what they will look like at night. The backsplash will be white and the counters some type of white/gray. I guess I should be more on top of it, but the builder picked out all the finishes and we are just along for the ride! 

In any event, it will be nice to have a dedicated space to stamp again. Hope you are all doing well. Stay cool!

Have mercy, that Santa is so cute, Joan! Many small parts which are daunting but make for such a special finished piece. Really love the embossing folder, too. I know your house will be beautiful. I will enjoy seeing pics along the way (hint hint).

Your swinging' Santa is the cutest on the web! I'm digging all of the samples of the SB release today. The EF is now on the wishlist too!
