Secret Santa

OK, just a few more cards from the holiday season left to show. I participated in a Secret Santa Swap with one of my yahoo groups...and it was so much fun!!  I used the special image that was included in the latest Magnolia Ink magazine.  I just adore this image and do hope they do more of these special stamps with the magazine in the future.
But to the card...I used distress inks to color it and still have a ways to go with them. But I did buy myself some more paint brushes so hopefully the coloring will get a little bit better. Yep, I'm going to blame it on the brushes, LOL.
 Did I mention I just love this image, hee-hee. And of course my usual inside shot of card:
Just a short post today, but do have more Christmas cards to post later. Come back and visit when you can.
Happy New Year everyone, hope it's the best yet.

Paula she is just totally adorable !!! Looks like I might have to start buying those magazines again to get those sweet little special images. I see you've mastered another coloring medium ... I am still trying to figure out my Copics & get my blending a little more lifelike but you just try them all & are great at every one. Also love how you decorated the inside to match. Just simply beautiful...
Big hugs, Janie
