Cupcake Inspirations Surprise Sweetie "A Santa without Reindeer Card" and One Coffee Grinder Card

I have got an email from Nina from Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, she invited me to be a Surprise Sweetie for December Challenge....woooww I am sooo happy and say YES I like being your GDT (Surprise Sweetie) :) For that post you can KLICK HERE.

I choose this time the Santa Without Reindeer  Digi Image. (for a simple name on the shop we choose Santa 04) to fit the color combo this time, for me was a bit DIFFICULT..why...because I only can use color red (poppy) blue (sky) and white..and the posibility is not endless :(( also I choose a simple layout this time for my card.

A bit story about this Image:  I and HN my friend in Java have start to sell HN Images (He drew all the Images) at Etsy we named JCLA .... but then we decided to make a shop with the name Little Shop, also this image you can found at our Little Shop and you can easy buy there for your christmas card.

Here is the card I made as GDT, I colored the Santa Hat and Clothes with Copic Marker and the sky behind him with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor.

This what I made for my card: I also stamped many Merry Christmas Sentiment on the card Base, I put one in Red color for accent. I used also my Pop Corn Pen for Santa hair and beard.

Here is the card once more I show on this post :)

***IMPORTANT NOTE: I have asked again my lovely friend Jerrie and Hetty , Faith and Pia, to play with this Image and these lovely ladies said yes I will play with this image :) (many thanks to Jerrie, Hetty, Faith and Pia for your lovely cards)
