Perfect Sentiment Challenge 04: Season's Greetings Sketch

Here I am again doing The Perfect Sentiment Challenge for the week is to create a card using a sentiment of Season's Greetings.  But, those words did not need to be indicated but more a sentiment that expresses one's own personal beliefs regarding the holiday season.  In addition, it is a sketch challenge.



I have two (I think it is only two) favorite words.  One, I use in a previous challenge (Priceless) and the second is Believe.  In my first marriage I had made a cross-stitch of twelve different Santas and was displayed year round.  I had read that displaying a Santa showed a heart and spirit of giving throughout the year.  I believe in Santa.  I do.  No doubt.  And, in my marriage now we have a sign that says the same.  Since religion is not part of my life, gifts to my children have and always will be signed from... Santa Claus and sometimes the Mrs., too.

For my interpretation of the sketch above and my card I chose the sentiment "Believe".  The inside of the card reads "in the Magic of the Season".  I had thought of using a Santa image but I just couldn't resist the Stampavie ~ Penny Johnson ~ Dearest Deer image.  The cardstock is from Stampin' Up and the DSP is from Fancy Pants ~ Saint Nick.  Copics were used for coloring.  Look at those two little deer looking into each other's eyes "believing" in each other.

And, last it brings a song from the season to mind from ~ The Polar Expess ~ Believe....


Enjoy!  Thanks for looking ;)
