Twas the Night Before Christmas Eve.......

This is a tongue in cheek kind of card and I love it!! I just love this clothesline of Santa's clothes, so I got the idea to show Mrs. Claus' very busy life! if she is anything like me and my life then those clothes would be drying on the line of Christmas Eve and Santa would be sitting in his robe waiting!! LOL
I used SCAL2 and SVGcuts.com cut files from the "Santa's North Pole Workshop" set to create this card. The background, clothesline, poles and clothes are all from this set as well as the Mrs. Claus inside.... that's right, this one is all done inside as well! Most of the time I write a personal note inside and do not really decorate the inside except for a strip or two of paper (maybe). Mrs.Claus' face is a Peachy Keen stamp from the PK-480 "Christmas Character Face Assortment" set, I colored the glasses with a white gel pen and gave her rosy cheeks with a Copic marker and then did tiny white dots with the gel pen. I used my Cri-Kits pens to create the sentiment (it took me a good day of thinking about it to come up with the sentiments! LOL) I used both Diamond Stickles and Candy Cane Stickles on Santa's Clothes as well as my Irock and some clear gems to accent the snowflakes. The papers are shimmer papers from Archivers (The Paper Company) and the stripe is from a Kaisercraft stack from last year. The snowflake background paper is a digital paper that I printed out from Sanqunetti Designs from www.mygrafico.com, this is from the "Jolly Days Paper" set. The label and mat for the label is from the SVGcuts.com "Christmas Cookie Party" set. I hope you like the card!
