Sandy Claws is coming...

I really love this set. I mean...isn't this little guy adorable? On Tuesday before Julia and I left Germany we were all ready to go and had about 30 minutes before the taxi was scheduled to arrive, so I thought what the heck...let's make a quick card!

I needed something simple since we had to be fast, and I had some snowflake paper from Wintergreen DSP pack handy, so that became my background layer. I stamped Sandyclaws and quickly colored him in with markers. Red for him and his hat, bashful blue for the sleigh, and going grey for the details on the sleigh. I mounted him on basic black, and then real red, tied the Mike's ribbon around the card, and stamped the greeting. I truly believe you can only make these kinds of simple, quick cards with great stamps, because that is where all the focus is when it's something this simple. And sandyclaws here certainly qualifies!!

I can't wait to get home and play with my GinaK stuff some more. I haven't had nearly enough time to test it all out yet, which is driving me a little mad! ;-) But, once I get home, since Christmas cards will be in the mail, and the Weinachtsmarkt is the weekend I arrive, I will be able to stamp for pure fun again!! :-)

I'm heading to NH this morning to meet Julie Masse. I can't wait to meet her in person. I'm bringing my daughter and my niece, because my nephew is having surgery today. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers today...he needs all the help he can get! Have a wonderful day today everyone!



  1. Your card came out very cute. Love that you used blue. I live in NH too! I hope you have lots of fun.


  2. OH MY GOSH, that is tooooooo cute!!!! love it!!!!

  3. Jana - found you through Joanne B's (just a little something) blog - had to come visit your blog, since you said you were moving to Germany...been there, done that - missed my "stuff" for 5 months while the military "forgot" to ship it out on time! We only spent a year in Germany (once again, the infinite wisdom of the U.S. Army.....) but I loved it!

    Then I read your profile and discovered you're from Maine - ME TOO! I miss New England fiercely right now, particularly because I haven't seen my family in a few years (we're in KS now). I'm always glad to add a new blog to my reading list and I'll be adding yours to my RSS feeder!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
