Day 10 of 12 Days of Christmas" Smeared and Smudged style"

Hello everyone. First and foremost I would like to apologize for posting this late.
I had to work late unexpectedly today.
Yea I know I should alway's be prepared for thing's like that to happen.
I'm getting better at getting thing's ready for all of my new online buddie's.

I would just like to take a minute and wish ALL of you a very Merry Christmas and hope that your New Year bring's you everything that you hope and dream it will.

Now on to today's project. I made a card again. I have had to make more card's than I had initially planned on making. I assumed right off the bat that I would have plenty of time to make mostly some kind of altered item but it didnt work out in my favor on that.
I am off the rest of the evening and I think I will use today to get a couple of those I had planned on making finished and started.
I had to get this santa stamp and use him before christmas was over.
I think he is so cool looking. Look's like he has been rode hard and put up wet a time or two too many.
I love how the artist threw in the wrinkle's. Was a perfect touch.
I used glossy accent's on his blade. I colored all the digi's with copic marker's.
Used "Renee" from the "Gothic Fairy" set from smeared ink along with santa. I also used the hand's wreath from the "Gothic Christmas" set also from smeared ink. Used the raven from the set "Quoth the Raven" for Renee's pet bird. and threw on the "Watchful eye" digi just because I like him and haven't used him for a few project's.
I decorated the envelope with matching paper and ribbon. Oh yea the patterned paper is "Once upon a time" from DCWV and the green is from their texured cardstock pad (neutral's)
wooooo weeee that's alot of stuff that went on this card.
Does everyone like knowing what people use on the card's?
I personally like it myself cause it gives me idea's and some heads up on crafting supplie's as I have to buy most of mine online and it;s just not the same as walking up and down the isle with close up shot's of stuff. So seeing what other' crafter's use help's me to do a search for the right stuff.

Anyway enough blabbering, right? I'm sorry I told you before I get carried away. Enjoy!!

I would also like to enter this into smudgy antic's weekly challenge.  I will post it separately for the correct link. It is running for 2 week's this time due to the christmas holiday.
Anyone reading this blog should go check their site out.
They have a different themed challenge every week and I have seen prizes from digi stamp's to handmade jewelry since I have been an active member with them.
They just changed their rules so that now you can use any digi that you so choose and still be eligible for the prize. Go over and play along.
