Santa for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning!

11

Kathy is our  hostess this week.


I always love putting Santa on a Christmas card.

I'm trying to thin out my UFO box and this Santa was sitting in there
waiting patiently for his turn to find a home.

My coloring had bled out so I fussy cut him and placed him in some
torn snowbanks.

I fussy cut the trees and placed them around him.

A little Dazzling Details and some tiny tags and it was done.

Even the base card with the embossed panel was in the leftover drawer.

So glad to thin out some of those pieces.

All those scraps will get me into

and I'm going to play at



Now it's time to get your Santa on and join us at

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!
