Santa Claus Merry Monday #81

November 1, 2013

Another month has ended and I can't believe that Christmas is right around the corner!!!   I love the Always Playing With Paper, Merry Monday Sketch this week.  It is perfect for me!  I absolutely LOVE Santa and I have a huge collection of the Jolly Old Elf!  I especially love the old vintage/ retro looking Santas.  I live outside of Atlanta and the World of Coke is a must see.  They have portraits of the original Santas used in their advertising over the years.  I could stand in that room forever and look at every detail.  It brings tears to my eyes.  If you are ever in Atlanta, you should go for a tour!
                                                            
I bought this Santa stamp a few years ago and never used it.  I am so happy to finally have a chance to make this Jolly Santa.  I hope he makes you smile!   I made a pocket card that I can insert a gift card on the back for a gift.  Ho, Ho, Ho!!!!
