Precious Gift

Well I started this card out as a birthday card for my grandson Kenney who will be two years old Nov 25th.  I wanted a cute little boy image, I thought this one was perfect, except that the teeny tiny tag on the gift says "From Santa".  Not that he would even know of course what it said, but it bugged me, so I'll have to make him another one!  So I decided to make it a Christmas Card.  I purchased this image a short time ago and can't for the life of me remember where I got it...I usually keep better track!!  Anyway...I colored him using Promarkers & Spectrum Noir markers, and just have not mastered how to keep the colors from bleeding outside the image..will take hours more of practice I guess!!  The papers are from My Mind's Eye "Countdown to Christmas" pack...my most favorite pack of paper ever!  The image was cut out with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die, and the sentiment shape cut out with Jillian Vance's Everyday Flag die & stamp set.  The actual sentiment is from Pure Innocence "In a Manger" set.  The red diamond's are Sticko Tile's Play Mosaic Stickers that I've had forever and never thought I would use!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Lovely card Patty, I often put a gem or some glitter on something like the tag in your image to be able to use it for different occasions. This does make a really great Christmas card though.

Thanks for joining our '46 Days to Go' Christmas challenge
