What a jolly Santa! Love your all red card, Bonnie. I'm sure that is the color I would have chosen.

Bonnie, what a cute card!! Love the look and perfect with this sketch. Plus the Santa is darling with his red hat, rosy cheeks and nose.

Love the embossing and glittery frame on this one! Another beautiful Christmas card! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments on my blog!

He's a jolly looking Father Chrsitmas and those embossing folders are fabulous as well. Some Santa stamps just don't look Santa-enough, but this one is perfect!

Love how the pattern in the embossing goes with the pattern on his hat ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.

Julie said...

Narelle Farrugia said...

ooooooooh! i just ♥LOVE♥ this... it's a brilliant sketch, to begin with, and that stamp is lovely, as well... then you've taken TWO different (but beautifully coordinating) e/fs to add texture and just a little bit of stripey goodness to jazz things up ET VOILA! total holiday masterpiece!
