I LOVE Santa! Merry Monday #83

November 14, 2013
                                       

My day is super busy, but I wanted to post a card for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge and the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.  I am hosting Book Club today and really should be getting things prepared, but you know priorities get in the way!

I LOVE both  challenges this week!  Red, Chocolate, Stripes and Hearts or Stars!  I was able to cover all the requests!  The simplicity of the sketch from FMS was perfect!  This card describes me well, because I DO love Santa I have been collecting Santa's for years.  I can't wait to get them all out and look at their jolly faces every day!  ENJOY!

  8. Claire, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog...at first I thought those colors were strange...brown for Christmas? But I really do love that combo now and your card is just as nice! Love your background embossed paper! I collect Santa's and snowmen...so your later card with the snowmen on top of each other is so darn cute too!
