It's that CRAZY time of the week! Time for the last Crazy 4 Challenges challenge of 2011. We'll be taking a break for the rest of the month/year so everyone can focus on the holidays with one less stressor :) We'll be back with a whole new year on January 7th. Today's challenge is brought to us by Jessie and her challenge to us is to make a card with Santa on it. Easy enough!
I brought out my Inspired by Christmas set by MFT again. I love this vintage Santa that can be colored...or not, and always looks good :) I kept it simple so I can add it to my "mail friendly" stash (this may be the last one I get to add--I must get them in the mail SOON!) I stamped Santa on patterned paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and added part of the sentiment--the "Believe" part--with Cherry Cobbler Ink--the ellipsis was added with a Cherry Cobbler marker. Then I added the cancellation post mark from First Class Friends at the top and another of my Upsy Daisy Die-namics poinsettias.
I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside, along with another (stamped-off-once) Santa.
And that's all for me for now! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
