Spectrum Noir blog post - Steam Punk Santa

Hello dear crafty friend... 
I bet you wondered where I had gotten to???
I have had such a busy week, so many jobs to catch up with, ad its getting really busy at work. 
 I am trying to get the last of my Christmas cards ordered finished, then I can look forward to next weekend, when we get a short break away in robin hoods Bay. Its time once again for the Victorian Weekend. its such a pretty little seaside village, and everyone there is dressed up in Victorian clothing, its truly a step back in time. 
If this weekend weather is anything to go by it looks like it will be really chilly. We have rented a cottage, and we will be stocking up on logs for the fire... then we can get cosy and enjoy the atmosphere.... carol singing , and mulled wine.. the works! 
So, staying with a vintage feel, my next card is my post over on the Spectrum Noir blog... Its a steampunk Santa from MIC.... and I think he is perfect for a teenager...not so cutesy, but very cool!

I have , once again used my fav papers from Papermania, matted with oodles of kraft card, distressed with a tool then DI's. the image, steampunk Santa is coloured with my Spectrums .The snowflakes are SB snowflake dies 2012. I have attached the buttons with jute twine. For the list of colours I have used pop over to the SN blog.....
