Santa's Sack for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time!

Nina's choice this week is
Now this left me scratching my head.

Then I thought about Santa's sack and I remembered
a card in an old computer card program that I have.

Before I really got into making cards, I learned to use the computer
by making cards on it.
This one comes from a Hallmark program.

I printed it off several times and  used the extras to cut pieces to
"decoupage" on top of one of the print outs.

This Santa's sack doesn't contain toys.  Looks like he's
delivering to the wildlife.

I like that idea.

And see how he's having a nice visit with that cardinal?

Bet he's asking him what he wants for Christmas.

Rudolph Days May Challenge
is going strong until the last day of the month.
I'm going to take my Santa over to join all the other lovely cards there.

Hope you can find a sack in your stash (or get some clip art off the Internet)
and join us at Merry Monday. 

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I did cards on the computer too at first Bonnie!! Loved making them and I had a Hallmark program and many other's as well. Now sadly they don't work with my computer anymore. Love how you did this santa using your program. He turned out great and I love that he is having a chat with the cardinal. And I love that he is delivering to the wildlife! Hugs, Brenda

Gorgeous vintage Christmas card, Bonnie! I love that your Santa is delivering goodies to his wildlife friends, and the soft colors of the tree in the corner is so pretty! You did an amazing job with your paper piecing, really adds so much dimension to this card, and I love the stitched border! A stunning work of art!!!
