Merry Monday Old St. Nick

Did you get a start on your Christmas cards last week?  The Merry Monday challenge is a great way to get those cards done before the Christmas rush begins.

This week's challenge is a sketch.



Here's what I did.


I had this Santa image already stamped from a friend's stamp.  The holly is from Winter Memories cut out and added and the sentiment is from he Good Cheer Wheel that was in the Holiday Mini.  I used lots of Dazzling Details so he really sparkles.  

Be sure to visit the other design team members and see their wonderful cards.

I hope you'll join us at Merry Monday this week and share a Christmas card creation.

I'm also going to take this to play with the Splitcoaststampers Fanclub Christmas Spirit challenge.  This month's challenge is Christmas Wedding.   Something borrowed (the stamp), something new (the embossing folder), Something old, the Good Cheer Wheel.  Nothing blue this time though.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
