Happy St. Nicholas' Day!
I just recently received my Whiff of Joy Winter Stamp kit - my last one as a Designer for WOJ - and luckily I found some time yesterday to play :-)
And since today is actually St. Nicholas Day, I decided to share this card with you.
It's been stamped onto copic blending card and colored with copic markers. Sentiment is part of this cute stamp kit. It was a available as a pre-order only, I don't think it is available anymore.
The card has been kept pretty simple. I just simply distressed the edges and added some gold cord.
What about you, do you celebrate St. Nicholas Day? Here in America my kids get a little bit of candy and usually also a pair of gloves, or maybe some fun warm socks left in their boots by the front door. When I was a child, growing up in Europe, it was quite different. St. Nicholas, we called him "Nicholaus", would actually come to our house on the evening of December 6th. I remember I had to sing a song and say a poem, then he gave us some candy and walnuts. It was always a day I couldn't wait for although I was always scared to death of him :-)
I'd love to play in these challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Divas by Design - Festive
Divas by Design - Festive
Paper Shelter Challenge -Special Celebration
Sisterhood of Crafters - Santa Claus
