Ready for Santa?

Ho Ho Ho... I know panic attack! But seriously it is coming quick and time to get those Christmas cards going. And the new Stampavie Sarah Kay Noel collection is PERFECT for your Christmas cards this year. Not that I need to introduce you... but this image is "Santa" LOL! How wonderful is he, Sarah Kay really did capture the wonderful vintage Santa with this one.

For my card I used some new papers from JoAnn's Debbie Mum holiday collection. Again it is hard to see in the photo but all of the candies are glittered. Yummy. I used an EK Success Border punch for the edges of the paper, and then picked a matching pattern for the background. I gel pen stitched the edges. I went through all of my sentiments... and then remembered this ribbon I got last year - I like how it looks.
This is a more simple card - and flat with no other embellishments. I started to add other things, and then I got to thinking.. that for making a bunch of Christmas cards and for mailing a bunch of Christmas cards - sometimes flat and just a bit simpler is better.

So do you have your Stampavie Sarah Kay Noel images yet? Have you seen them? I would love to see yours if you are using them for your Christmas cards!

My "lunch" yesterday was fun, and great to see everyone.. but then Hubby needed me to run some errands with him - so my few hours away - turned into all day! AAHHH so today is double duty day - lots to accomplish. And I must get everything done in the next couple of days! So I can play this weekend and the CKU Scrapbook convention.. LOL wink wink!

HUGS and-
