Here comes Santa Claus...

here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus lane! LOL
Good morning friends! Today is a bright new day and I am feeling much better. Thanks for all of the get-well wishes. :) I'm settling in for a weekend of hanging out with friends and lots of card making. It's getting close to that exciting time of the month when the brand spankin' new Anya stamps get previewed and I need to finish up all my cards for that. I can't say much because I don't want to spoil the surprise but OMG... Marie has been a busy girl making wishes come true! ;)
Until then I hope you don't mind getting another sneak peek of one of my digi images coming out on Monday. This is Cookie Break Santa and he's just grabbing a quick snack before flying off to the next house. I know some of you have asked if these will be available in rubber as well and as far as I know right now they are only planned for digi. Maybe if there is enough interest in them they will see rubber eventually... who knows? I'm definitely a rubber stamp girl if I have a choice so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed too. :)
Let's see what else was I going to say... oh yea, don't forget that you still have until tonight to get your name entered into my final Sweet November candy for this release. Check out this post here. Tomorrow I will post a winner!
Okey dokey I think I'll wrap things up for the day, have a wonderful weekend!

I can't wait for more sneak peaks....though my bank balance has taken such a whack recently. There are so many new stamps and sets being released at the moment that I have rubber flying to me from all over the world at the moment!!

I'm not usually a big fan of Santa images for Chrissy cards - doesn't fit with the hot Aussie summer weather we experience at this time of year - but your guy is so-ho-ho cute!!

You're a marvel with these images. I'm gonna have to check 'em all out on Monday when they're released.

I haven't really done the digi thing because I've not set up my printer at home and I'm not sure the ink would be permanent enough for colouring with Copics. I could print on my work laser printer....but then I have to remember to take my 'special' paper to work with me....and its the last think I'm thinking about when I in the Clinic, to be honest.
Anywho.....I def need to go to bed now.....its way late over here.
