Happy Thursday, everyone!  Just a quick little Christmas card today; I already had this Santa image stamped, colored and diecut when I saw the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week:
So here we go:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Vintage Santa FMS162
I took the liberty of substituting the oval for the rectangle, and this Folk Art Santa from All Night Media is probably one of the first stamps I ever bought, and I don’t ever remember using it!  I stamped him in Stazon and colored him with SU markers:
It can’t be seen here, but the stars have some Wink of Stella glitter on them; of course, I added gold glimmer stars, and some gold baker’s twine.  Paper is Authentique.  Thanks for visiting today!
When you jump into a leaf pile wearing pink cowboy boots:
chances are those boots might come off in the leaf pile!!
Socks?  What socks?  I think they were left in the house, LOL!  Enjoy your day!

Love this Santa LeAnne! So cute and I actually found one on eBay too. Cassidy sure looks like she's having fun. We are in the deep freeze right now and the kids aren't even coming outside for recess because it's so cold. Feel a bit sorry for the teachers right now. ~chris
