Santa over at Merry Monday!



Hi all - another Monday - yay!  It's Presidents' Day holiday for me 
so I checked out Merry Monday for the latest challenge.  
This week, Sue challenges us to use a Santa on our card.







I have the greatest Santa stamp but do you think I can find it??!  So I grabbed some Graphic 45 patterned paper with a charming old fashioned Santa image.  Here's my card:

Ho Ho Ho

For my card base I used a piece of Hero Arts designer layering paper.  The cute pierced circle is a die from the Sizzix Circle Flip-its set (#559171) - just love this set!!  Holly embellie is from Jolee.  The paper for the banner is from the same Graphic 45 Twas the Night Before Christmas 8x8 pad.  I varied an OWH sketch (#191) for the design.

Busy week for me this week but I'll try to find my Santa stamp later.  Meanwhile, I hope you'll stop back on Wednesday as there will be a surprise from Hero Arts - I'm glad to be hopping along with some "sistas".

Thanks for stopping and happy crafting!!
