Today, Trish announced our new Queen to be Sue28! Sue is one of the sweetest gals!!! She helps out her Mom quite a bit and we seem to have a few other things in common. Sue has a fantastic gallery with so much variety and all wonderful!!! I decided to case this wonderful card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2171406
I kept the layout the same, but made mine a Christmas card...as I still have so many to do...how many days left? While Sue's card is bright and cheerful, I distressed mine and, is Santa looking a bit concerned? Hopefully he isn't looking at the "naughty" list! LOL
The silver stars are German Scrap sent to me by Polly (Peeps321) Thank you Pol!
Sue, I hope you have a fabulous week as Queen!!! Even though it is so close to Christmas, I hope you get LOTS AND LOTS of cards to honor you!!!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Kathleen, I just love this Christmas card - Santa just looks like he has had a long day sitting on his Santa chair listening to childrens' wishes!! I love your distressed look, embossing and striped dp and Santa is coloured so well with your copics - what colour do you use for his face (it looks so close to skin colour)? Thank you for your very kind words and for making a card this week in my honour, it is SO much appreciated :p

He does look a bit concerned, doesn't he? I love how the die you chose emulates his beard flowing in the cold breeze while he's on his sleigh (maybe that's why he's concerned)! Pretty distressing and colors, Kathleen. A perfect tribute to our queen, Sue~

Kathleen, a lovely card to honor the Queen!! Your Santa is very intense, he must be fussing at the reindeer especially Rudolph!!

I LOVE this vintage Santa..the distressed look is fab...the embossed bg looks perfect with the stripes on the bottom and I think you used those stars in a very cool way..a small detail that adds so much!
