CAS Christmas Card!


I have been eyeing the challenge over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and finally found a bit of time to put something together.  When I was visiting my sweet friend Linda in Seattle this past summer, she let me stamp a few of these fabulous Santas to bring home with me. Isn’t that stamp just awesome?  I so love a traditional Santa.  I don’t know about you, but when I go to a mall at Christmas time (which mind you isn’t very often these days-with online shopping), I purposely have to walk by the Santa display, to see if the Santa they have greeting the children looks authentic enough. Luckily this past week, when I was at a mall in Sarasota, I spotted Santa himself!! He was the real deal I tell you! So between the stamp and seeing the jolly man himself, I was very inspired! In fact, I made three more cards using this fabulous stamp, that hopefully I will have time to share later. Not sure who makes this stamp, but the sentiment is an old one that I adore from Verve. The snowflake is a die from Poppystamps. The square die that I used for a belt is from Spellbinders.

On a side note, my father has been recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is having a Masectomy tomorrow, so this post was a nice distraction. Hug your loved ones, Nanc’
