Rounding Up

Remember when we were all excited about our first circle and square dies? OMG, I could actually cut a circle or square in the middle of the card without that without a knife and template (which I never mastered).  Now I have so many dies and I've totally forgotten about my circles and squares.

I have used my old and circle die and the really fancy scallop circle die to frame Santa. This is a very old PSX Santa Stamp that belongs to a friend and if she every wants to get rid of it, I would take it off her hands in a minute. 

Isn't he just gorgeous?  There is another PSX Santa on Ebay that I have my eye on. Woops! It just jumped into my cart.

I made this one an easel card.

Copic Markers colored him up.

He has a lot of sparkle

Where's the "Pretty Paper" you say.  Well, white paper is pretty too.  And red. And Green.

I would like to enter my card in the Double D's Here Comes Santa Claus Challenge.


  1. Oh, no you didn't!!! One of my all-time favorite and most valued stamps. I bring him out every few years. Have another PSX Santa I almost used for this challenge, but will color him up later. It's time for him to see the light again. This is a real WOW! I love it way too much. Yes, white is pretty, too. Where would we be without our basic circles and squares and ovals? Love how you did the sentiment and underlined it with the ribbon die. All so gorgeous! It's wonderful to see this in our DD Santa challenge!

    1. I have your Santa posted to my PXS Pinterest board.
