Santie Claus is Coming!

Or maybe not.  Maybe he's just going to stay home this year and put his feet up.  Gosh knows I'd like to be doing that.

The A Muse Studio Challenge blog, located HERE, has a challenge this week that is SO easy, even you can do it!  With a hand tied behind your back!  In your sleep!   Okay, that hand tied thing might make it a little more challenging, but still you could join too.

The challenge is to make a winter holiday card: Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, First Day of Winter, Festivus, etc.  Since it is the A Muse Studio challenge, they prefer that you use A Muse Studio stuff, but it is not a requirement.  How easy is that?!  I’ve been doing that for the last several weeks. 

I have been using a lot of a|s stuff to make holiday cards but I didn’t feel right using a card I already made for this challenge.  I felt I should make a new card just for this challenge (and then add it to my holiday stash).   I also figured I should toss as much a|s stuff into it as I could, so here it is in all its glory:
 The stamp comes from the Christmas Carol set, which I’ve used a lot recently, but the funny thing is I’ve not used this stamp from it before.  So how nice for it to finally get used!

Also, if you are fan of A Muse Studio (and who isn't?) starting tomorrow they will be having a 20% off sale on Ten Holiday Must-Have Items!  That includes baker's twine, holiday washi tape, some stamp sets, the stardust finishing spray, glitters, inks, calendars, and kraft cardstock.  *swoon*

The Fine Print: Everything by A Muse Studio, “Christmas Carol” set, vanilla, evergreen, and cranberry cardstock, candy cane striped paper, black brads, and cherry twine.  Okay, I lied I used my Fiskars metal ruler to distress the edges of the one layer.  Maybe someday I’ll try the a|s edge distressing doo-hickey.
