Make It Monday #119 with Bugaboo Stamps

Well the Christmas countdown is officially on in my house. I have 13 days to pull a rabbit out of the hat and whip my Christmas preparations into shape before my son and new daughter-in-law arrive. Trouble is, my list keeps growing daily lol. I do hope you are fairing the hustle & bustle of the holidays and having fun along the way. Speaking of having fun, it's time for a new linky party at Make It Monday and this week we are sponsored by the generous folks at Bugaboo Stamps.

I'm using Old World Santa 4 for my trio of ornaments which will hang on my woodland tree. We are a multi tree home and this one is chock full of fishing ornaments, shotgun shell lights, woodworking Santa's and other fun outdoorsy images. After coloring my three images with Copics I fussy cut them, flocked his hat in white and applied Stickles to his moustache/beard & lantern.

The background is a Spellbinders Label 7 die and each one was cut from a dp in the MME Lost & Found Christmas collection. Taylored Expression's helped out with their Trim the Tree die and I cut it from dark green corrugated cardstock that I've had for too long. ;-) I thought about adding snow with gesso but ran out of time so I might go back and do that later, we'll see. Instead of stamping or creating a sentiment I used K & Co. 3D stickers and called it good. Now for my Pick of the Week which is ...

I love this Tilda nativity scene with Mary, baby Jesus and that sweet angel with her sparkly wings. Mandy's sentiment is perfect and so is her coloring which is absolutely beautiful. She finished it off with amazing layers and I'm so happy you shared this with us Mandy. 
Prize: Winner's choice of 7 single digi's!
