Merry Christmas Florida Style!


Hello Friends,  I trust you had a nice Thanksgiving and have finished all your Christmas shopping on Black Friday! (Just kidding of course!) If you are anything like me, I had no interest at all in shopping on Black Friday this year. Now if my son was home and he asked me to go shopping with him, I would have been ready at the crack of dawn.  He and I always have a ball when we go shopping together.  However, I do intend to go shopping on Small Business Saturday which is today when this post went live.  I love supporting the brick and mortar stores in my area.

Now a bit about Today’s card.  I picked up this cute stamp set from my LSS store about a month ago, and I fell in love with it right away.  It’s from Art Impressions and called Tropical Christmas.  When I saw Vicki’s Photo for this week over at Just Us Girls, I thought it would work perfectly! The photo she picked out is so colorful with a huge focus on Turquoise so that is where I jump started my color palette. I still haven’t mastered my Copic coloring by no means, but it will have to do.  I used some glitter on the top of my gold colored bells on top of the flip-flops.  The sentiment however is from Verve.

I need to also thank Trina for being a fabulous Guest with us this month!  Your cards were all Fabulous!  I also want to take a minute and say a fond farewell to one of our DT members at Just Us Girls.  This is my good friend Judy’s last post with us and to say I am a bit sad would be a HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT! I absolutely loved working with you Judy and you will be gravely missed!  I wish you nothing but the best, and I know I will keep up with you over on FB! BIG- BIG- HUGS!!!!

I am also entering my card in another challenge!  Woohooooo!  Can’t tell you how long that has been! I haven’t done a two for one in eons!!  Over at Merry Monday they asked for a Santa on your Christmas Card!

Hope you have a fabulous day! Nanc’

  4. Awesome card, Nancy…that is a great Floridian Santa I think! Flip flops and all!! And I love your colors choices with all those fun papers!

  5. Perfect Florida Santa, love his flip flops and shades. Great colors and design. Have a great weekend. Warm Hugs.

  6. This card could not be any more perfect for a Florida Christmas card. It just made me smile. I love your bright background, it seems just right for the Santa, who has on sunglasses. Well done, my dear. LOVE the flip flops too!!! I am sad this is my last challenge too! I will miss all you girls, it has been an honor to be in such amazing creative company!! But you KNOW I will NOT be a stranger. Thank goodness for the internet. All the best, my friend!!! See you in cyber space!!!

  7. Great image for a warm weather Christmas, Nancy. I love those darling flip flops.

  8. Now this IS a card perfect for me here in Oz. Santa in his colourful shirt and boxers. Of course he has to have his (thongs) flip flops on. Too hot on the summer sand/footpath. He’s off to have a feast of seafood and a cold beer before he has that mandatory game of cricket in someone’s back yard. Love it Nancy. Made me chuckle!

  9. Bright and colourful, fantastic Christmas card. Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday.

  12. Now that is my kind of Santa!!!!! SO FUN!! Thanks for playing along with us at Merry Monday.

  13. What a fun card and I had to come over and tell you. I need to challenge myself to make more Christmas cards like this, as we will be in Florida for Christmas this year. What a fun way to tell everyone that. Looking forward to our visit this year. I went from Thanksgiving to packing my craft supplies and just think I am finished now There will not be room for a toothpick in the car. I sure hope Tom doesn’t forget me.

  14. Fabulous card, Nancy. I love Santa in his shorts. The flip flops are so fun too. Thank you for having me guest this month. Have a fantastic Christmas. Enjoy your month off. xx

  15. The perfect Floridian Santa! 🙂
