Turning Hope to Ho Ho Ho

Hello.  Welcome.  Frank was promised a real Santa hat if he would just pop up and remind all you lovely people that the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Tip Your Hat event ends tomorrow, midnight, one of those american time zone times.  Well, they have so many!!!!!

I stamped Carmen's Veranda Frankenstein and embossed with black powder.  Then I stamped the first two letters of Carmen's Veranda Zen Hope stamp 3 times and embossed with white powder.  I gave the background a watercolour wash using Festive Berries distress ink.  I cut Taylored Expressions die Party Hat from some snippets from the scraps box.  Ho Ho Ho indeed.  So stamp and leave the hat on and hop on over to the Portal and link up your hatty projects before midnight tomorrow.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
