Better Be Good...

Cuz Santa is watching you! LOL! Or so you'd think with this card! I went to Michael's recently and saw this stamp - instant love! I, of course, waited till I had a coupon and bought it! The potential for this one is awesome! So far I have done one card but have mental plans for many more! I used a card style that I picked up at the Shoebox Swap I went to last weekend too! Don't pass those up as you can get some great ideas! So, here's my card;



I used SU Chocolate Chip cardstock, some more paper given to me at birth , SU Very Vanilla cardstock, SU "Snowburst" stamps on the brown paper with SU Chocolate Chip ink, ribbon is from Michael's too, my glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds! I just love this card! I will probably add it to my box I am sending over to the troops! They need some fun cards!

I hope you enjoy my project!

Until next time....

That is one cute Santa, & don't ya just love great deals with coupons or the fun Target finds?
I went to my first-ever "shoe-box" swap a few years ago & will have to tell about it soon.
Love the tutoral on the bow-tying. I had never seen one done like that before- so thanks- great job & I will have to give it a try.
o.k.- now I am done with this 'book', hehe

I have that stamp! I used it for all my x-mas cards 2 years ago and the best part my sis had it in her shop for $6 reg price! You will get tons of use from this!

I LOVE this stamp and had someone stamp me like 12 images last year and need to get them into cards. But if Mike's has it I just might have to buy it. I have a Stampers Anonymous vintage santa that I love- have a card I posted a couple weeks ago. Heidi

I love this card, I have this stamp, would you believe it is back home in the UK and I am here in the US until December. I can be sooooo disorganised. This lovely card makes me itch to use it again.
