Sepia Santa - and win a Cricut cartridge......

Here is the giveaway for Tuesday - a brand new Cricut seasonal cartridge called Summer Vacation (not very seasonal in November, but hey, pretend Santa is coming early...). It has some rather nice cuts on it, love that ferris wheel, and there are some great car cuts on here - good for men's cards. All you have to do is leave a comment under this post, I will draw the winners next Monday and post their names on Tuesday. As usual, I will mail to anywhere in the world








On to today's card, I decided to see what this Santa would look like in sepia. I think it suits the image, do you? I coloured him with ivory, sandstone, tan and caramel Promarkers, and used grey green on the leaves



Come back tomorrow to see what those lovely guys at Letraset are offering as a gift for two of you this month.

  15. A lot of these cuts are one's that I don't currently have on my cartridges...especially manly cuts!!! So I would love to have it!!

    Santa in Sepia...hmmmm...very different...not bad, but I'm such an "old" fashioned stickler for red & white Santa!!!
