Ho! Ho! Ho!

Using a Christmas Die Cut from Cricut Design Space, and stamp set from CTMH, created a card for Fantabulous "Christmas Challenge"  After completing three of the four cards Bitten By the Bug 2 announced a "Christmas Words" Challenge today so my fourth card instead of a stamped sentiment chose the same sentiment in a die-cut from Cricut Design Space.  

Another Christmas Card, with no Sketch in mind, but to add to my 2016 Christmas Cards...loved the Brick Background paper which was cut and placed on card base a couple weeks ago; but just couldn't decide what to do with it. Pulled out the card base once again and chimney came in mind and off to Cricut Design Space to find something...purchased and modified this image. It all started to come together and was pleased with the design and made a couple more cards of the same.

Front of card was Santa coming down the chimney and on the inside Santa was traveling on to the next home.

    This reminds me, Sue, of those plastic Santa decorations that we had as children (that are worth a mint now). I wish I had kept mine. Love this!
