Practicing Creativity

When You've Had Enough of Milk & Cookies

I think this card, with its Di's Digi Stamps Boozy Santa image (retired), makes a perfect after Christmas post. Holiday treats are all well and good, but there's truth to the saying, 'too much of a good thing' and this little guy looks the part. I think he had a busy night helping Santa deliver presents and needed something a wee bit stronger than milk and cookies. 

You might have noticed I've used a lot of Di's digis for my Christmas cards this year. She is without a doubt one of my favorite digi illustrators. If you liked any of the digis I've used and want to add them to your own collection, now's the time. She's having a 50% off winter sale, including the already sale priced digis, so it's quite a savings.

Paper is a no-brand type picked up long ago in my local grocery store. It was an excellent buy, and has richly colored, heavy weight papers. I've used it quite a bit (e.g. this Swinging Snowman card) and will be sorry to use it up. Dies are no-brand. Embellishments are Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bottle Green and some dark green ribbon that unfortunately looks more black than green in this photo. The sentiment was created with Gabriola font.
