Six White Boomers, Snow White Boomers.......

November 29th 2011


What a great new theme at the Fashionable Stamping Challenge Blog - "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas". Now as you all know I live in Australia and you would think the only way I would get a White Christmas is by dreaming it BUT what you wouldn't know is we have a great Australian Christmas Carol "Six White Boomers" ("boomers" meaning KANGAROOS!!!!) soooooo I made my Christmas card using a fantastic Kangaroo Rubber Stamp I purchased a very long time ago and I stamped out "6 boomers" on metallic white paper and fussy cut them and arranged on my card front.


I've used Copic Markers to colour just the "Kangaroo Paw" Flowers they are holding and I've added a Merry Christmas Sentiment to finish it off. It was a bit hard to photograph the metallic white finish of the card  but hopefully you can still see what I was trying to achieve.


Below is the chorus of the song and if you click here you can see the rest of the words:

Six white boomers, snow white boomers,
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun.
Six white boomers, snow white boomers,
On his Australian run.

I hope you all appreciate my "interpretation" of the Fashionable Stamping Theme created to suit my Christmas "Climate"!!

This is wonderful! I love that you cut all around the image. Wonderful card! Thanks for sharing the poem. I forget that it is summer there. My step son and his wife were there one winter. We have beach Christmas pictures. It is only 35F here today. Enjoy your warm weather!
