Santa Baby

Wow - what an awesome but busy week! We had a great time with our out-of-town guests and we are so glad they came for a visit! We had good food, hot weather and lots of sunshine and fun times. I also spend lots of time in the garden in between visits - I had been seriously neglected it! I then went back to work for two very busy days - so glad the weekend is here! 

I have neglected my blog, but I do have a card today for the challenge at Jingle Belles where the theme this week is Santa Baby - create a card featuring Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer ... any denizen you may find at the North Pole.

Since I am really quite behind on my Christmas Card stash (23/100 at last count), I have been trying hard to come up with some pretty quick and simple designs that can be easily duplicated if need be. This is take one of this design, I have another to share of the same layout using different papers.

I would also like to share my card at Christmas Card Challenges this week.

Happy Friday!
Shanna :)

What I used:
papers: Authentique - Wonder Collection
stamps: CTMH - Father Christmas, Live Inspired, Universal backgrounds
postage stamp edge punch
