Christmas Card Club

I am about 3-4 weeks behind in the Christmas Card Club due to other pressing issues around here. I decided today to make a big effort to get caught up because in a little over a month I will be going to Spain and I don't want to get any further behind! I got one card done before getting sidetracked looking for a stamp that I want to use on the next challenge. I really have to get more focused but with the FM and ME that is a challenge in itself!!

This card is inspired by Sally's challenge...Santa Claus is Coming to Town (use Father Christmas Image or animal dressed as Father Christmas)

I used Graphic 45 Christmas Past card stock from 2 years ago...yes I hoard a lot!! I made the card with Pear Pizazz from Stampin'Up! and layered the Graphic 45 paper on top as a mat for the Santa image that I cut out of the opposite side of the layer paper! The ribbon is SU. I finished it off with a little sparkly red bling from my stash of stuffs. It is an easy peazy card and I am happy with the way it turned out. (I am not so happy with the picture cause it looks so blurry and dark to me.)

Check back tomorrow and hopefully I will have found the stamp I was looking for or I will have found another one that will work just as well. If you are interested in playing along with the group and getting a head start on your cards this year just contact one of us, names and links are on the side bar, and we will tell you how to get started.
