Here Comes Santa!

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you had a good weekend....the weather was FABULOUS yesterday, warm, no humidity, just gorgeous!  I had time to make a couple of Christmas cards; this one is for the Jingle Belles' challenge of Here Comes Santa:

At the end of the season last year, I snagged several cute Cottage Cutz dies; this one is called Santa Reindeer Border.  I also snagged a Graphic 45 pad at a thrift store while on vacation, so I put them both together with some Tranquil Tide cardstock and ribbon to make this quick, easy card!  All the papers are from the Graphic 45 pad; I diecut a stitched scallop border with a Pretty Pink Posh die and added a little ribbon accent:

And I just love the vintage feel to these papers:

I stamped some sentiments from last year's Stitched With Cheer set on the inside:

And yes, I celebrated my birthday on Friday---thank you to all those who sent cards as well as wishes!  I'll post them on my blog soon!  Cassidy got up bright and early (can you see how foggy it was?) to give me my present, which was a huge coloring book of birds along with some colored pencils!

Of course, she had to test out the pencils as well as the book, even before her breakfast!

That is SOME owl!

Thanks for dropping by today, and have a blessed day!

So glad you had a good birthday and what a lovely present Cassidy got for you (her!) What a wonderful coloring job. I have that DSP and I love your card too. I have the stitched with cheer stamps and the tranquil tide. Only thing missing is the die cut that I passed up at a craft store :-( Hopefully she still has it! So, guess who is going to be CASEing your card!!!

That die cut is fabulous! It goes so well with your DSP find to make a fantastic Christmas card! Love the tiny scallop border and ribbon too. Cassidy's pj's and that bright owl make for some wild times! So cute!

i've said it before and i'll say it again: you just CANNOT post pics of cassidy and her amazing coloring creations and then expect me to remember what exactly i came here for in the first place, lol?! i'm pretty sure there was a GORGEOUS holiday card in monochromatic tones, but with a pop of green that combined a silhouette-style die with the perfect texty patterned paper, that PROBABLY would've been perfect for JINGLE BELLES... but now all i can think about are adorable kiddos and rainbow owls!!! ♥♥♥
