Santa-Merry DD #80

November 24, 2013

I went to the grocery store this morning to shop for Thanksgiving!  I couldn't believe how many people were already there.  It was crazy!  I am keeping my fingers crossed that I got everything I need and don't have to go back.

I am really excited about the Dynamic Duo "Trio"  colors!  Raspberry Ripple is one of my favorite colors.  But then, mix it with Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride and I am pretty happy stamper!  I love those colors together.  It gives me a preppy/retro feeling, so I pulled out my Retro Santa stamp to create this card.  I smile every time I look at his face!  It is so realistic.  It really does look like he is talking!  I hope he makes you smile, too!  He also reminds me of the Coke Santa!
