Santa Postage Card

Hello Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I was sitting in my craft room on Saturday, working on projects when suddenly I was overcome with sickness!  It just washed over me like a wave.  By Saturday night, I had a fever, coughing and sinus pain.  I think it is just a summer cold, but it sure came out of nowhere!

Anyway...Today I made two Christmas Cards.  These are from an old SVGcuts file called Santa's Visit.



I really like making Christmas Cards in the summer!  I was surprised how much I enjoy making cards when there is no rush.

Recipe for this card:

SVGCuts - Santa's Visit
Paper - Kaiser Kraft Gingerbread Collection
MME 6x6 Paper Pad -Vintage Christmas
Flair - 3GirlJam
Bling - stash
Embossing Folders -Vines & Snowflakes
PowderPuff Chalks - Maraschino Cherry & Midnight

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Broken Fairy Design - Anything Goes with a Twist/Embossing
CHNC - 292 - Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas
HIMCR- #261 - Anything Goes must be Christmas
Alphabet Challenge - K is for Kindness (Santa is the kindest person in the whole world)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

  2. I agree with you Chriss.. making Christmas cards in the Summer is way better than rushing around during the holiday season... they get done on time and come the holidays it's one less thing to worry about! :) I do LOVE your card too... fantastic Santa with the embossing for a beard looks so cool! Sorry you got sick over the weekend, I hope your on the mend! Have a good Day! :)

If You've Never

If you've never seen an old witch
Riding through the sky--
Or never felt big bat's wings
Flopping, as they fly--

If you've never touched a white thing
Gliding through the air,
And knew it was a ghost because
You got a dreadful scare--

If you've never heard the night owls,
Crying, "Whoo-whoo-whoo?"
And never jumped at pumpkin eyes
Gleaming out at you--

If all of these exciting things
You've never heard or seen,
Why then--you've missed a lot of fun,
Because--that's HALLOWEEN!
