Santa Card

See, more proof that I really did start my Christmas cards early enough that I might not have to buy them at the last minute! Because every year I say I am going to get them done and every year I find myself at the store buying cards. I am pretty proud of the fact that my box of handmade Christmas cards is filling up quite nicely. This is another stamp that I bought at Papertrix when I was there in June. They were having a sale on all their Christmas images so I picked up several. Of course, I liked all the ones that I bought, but I do think this one is my favorite. I love the vintagey look to this Santa. I really just like the way he looks, standing there with  his bag full of goodies. The image is from Great Impressions and was colored with Copics, the paper is Bo Bunny, there is some stickles on the magic dust coming out of Santa's hand and I added a little "Merry & Bright" sticker that I picked up at my LSS.

Have a great weekend!!

Great job on creating such wonderful Christmas cards for the stash! That is an awesome traditional looking santa stamp! I need to remember to finish stamping my insides before the holidays. Even though I might have enough cards, I get lazy because I don't feel like stamping a sentiment inside. So. BAD! lol...Have a good weekend :)
