Santa is here!

I have another Christmas card under my belt...I love the way this turned out and hope you will, too! I am posting this card for two of my favorite challenge sites, ABC Christmas and The Paper Players . This week at The Paper Players they have a sketch challenge and I combined it with ABC"s letter S- Santa but not red challenge. I got out my Stampin' Up retired set "Santa Post" and stamped 3 of the stamps using Stampin' Up's Old Olive and Memento Summer Sky for the Santa colors. This retired Christmas dp by SU is one of my favs and I will miss it when it is gone. This was a quick card and I think it would be a good one to make a lot of. I even got out my old decorative scissors and cut around the stamped postage images, haven't used those in a long time. You have a few days on these challenges, so I hope you will join me and play along. I hope to see some of your creations along side of mine. Thanks for taking a look and have a wonderful week!

cs- SU Old Olive, dp retired SU, SU Cranberry Crisp-retired
Stamps- SU Santa Post, Sincere Salutations and inside sentiment Heard from the Heart
ink- SU Old Olive, Memento Summer Sky
SU oval scalloped punch, pearls- Queen & Co, decorative postage scissors

Patti - another wonderful card. I love the fact that you used your paper snips to cut around the stamps. I thought I was the only person who did those types of things:-) I love your color combo, too!
Thank you for joining the Paper Players again this week. I always look forward to seeing your creations.
