Santa Merry Christmas

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

It's been a rainy weekend in North Carolina.  I'm not complaining because we
need the rain and it was a good excuse to stay inside and craft.

Show us Your Santas!

I immediately thought of this Santa stamp.
He's one of my favorites and hadn't been used this year.

He's been stamped with Versafine ink and colored with
colored pencils.  Sorry, I didn't note the colors this time.

I found a couple of sparkly snowflakes to pop over the snowflakes
in the stamped design and added some Crystal Glaze to his spectacles.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Always love this image, Bonnie! Your 'just a touch of colour' approach is just perfect. What a beauty. Thanks for playing again at The Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Jo x

I've been having a browse through your posts Bonnie and as usual, I'm absolutely blown away by your creativity. Forgive me for not commenting on each one (I have a lot of catching up to do!) but your bell and berries card and the twofer Christmas greenery cards are wonderful - such amazing bursts of colour. I love this santa too with his touches of colour and the crystal glaze spectacles being the icing on the cake! Vicky x

Beautiful stamp and striking card! I've never seen this stamp before and of course I found out he's a stamp from yesteryear...sigh.

Great Santa card, Bonnie - love the black and white with just a bit of colour on Santa's face. It would make a great masculine Christmas card.

I have this image and love how you used it! Matted on top that Kars folder that I so covet, he looks fabulous. Love the black and white color scheme too.

One of my most favorite images - I do have this stamp. I have seen you use this image one time before - loved it then and love it now!
So fabulous Bonnie --Santa is supposed to have a sweet face and "he sure do"!

I love how you accented the individual panels of the card by adding colorful frames. Embossed snowflakes are the perfect complement to this amazing card
