Santa is Distressing!!!!

This is a card I made for my SCS Bloggers Group #2. The challenge was hosted by Sara. The challenge was to use polka dots any way we like and ribbon. I used both in almost every layer. The paper is from Glitz Designs (you can buy some at my web store), the Santa stamp is from SU and the sentiment stamp is a $1 stamp from studio g, the primas are white and yellow and I used a polka dot stamp roller (also found on my site) from Glitz Designs. I love this roller and find that I reach for it all the time! I sprayed Tattered angels on the Santa to distress him a little. I also added a little pearl acrylic paint from Ranger to the edges of everything. This paper has its own unique style that I really like, so I tried to make a card that matched that style well. Hope everyone likes it. My 8 year old daughter can't decide if she likes it, or she is just too sweet to say she hates it, LOL! I like to try different styles to stretch myself a little. Hope you like it (: 
This is a cute picture of my youngest son and our doggy Bruno (: We have had Bruno for two years now and our children have just loved him! He is the sweetest dog and I just live him (: He always sits by my feet while I am working in my office or Blogging, so I had to share my furry friend with you (: 
I also wanted to mention that I got a huge shipment in yesterday so check out my website for some unique items! I will be adding rub-ons on Monday too. I have a beautiful kit in from Fancy Pants Designs called Arctic Chill. This set makes you want to snuggle up with a nice cup of hot tea and start creating! I also have a new line of winter paper in called Holly Jolly that is just gorgeous! This paper is double sided and each side is stunning! It's cold here and I am going to play with some of this new paper and Oh a new stamp set called Happy. Make a warm cup of something and go shopping! If you are listed on my Blog I will add in a sweet little surprise to your order (: 
Let me know what you think!!!!
