SANTA IN SEPTEMBER

Good morning all!!! I hope you are having a fabulous week! I am, but just very busy, LOL!! I love it though - keeps me out of trouble *wink*  I wanted to share one of the cards we made in my Santa in September class last week - I love having these classes because it helps get all the Christmas cards we all need DONE before the holidays so there is no mad scramble in December, lol!  We made five cards in all so I will share some more with you all tomorrow.  This first one is definitely not yoru traditional colors of Christmas but I think it is super cute all the same! It uses the stamps set Greeting Card Kids, which has adorable images for several different holidays and they are sooooooo stinkin' cute - they bring back the old fashioned feel to holidays that seems to be missing sometimes.  Look at that little one - isn't she just as sweet as can be??!!  I paired her with the Candy Cane Christmas designer paper from the holiday mini, which pretty much dictated my colors of Baha Breeze, Garden Green, and Blushing Bride along with some yummy Real Red! I love all these colors but would not have thought of putting them together myself - Stampin' Up! is amazing that way :-)  The background is embossed on the Big Shot using the finial press folder - love it!! I colored my little cutie in with Stampin' Write markers, then added some dazzling diamonds underneath her for the snow effect.  And, of course I had to have some ribbon and a yummy button with some bling to top it all off! The ladies loved this card and I love how it turned out! If you see something on this card you have to have (I know you do, LOL!) you can order from my online store and it will come straight to your door!  So, today is dedicated to prepping for class tomorrow night and working on some projects for the Harvest Festival this weekend - lots going on around here, LOL! Have a fabulous day and I will be back tomorrow to share another fun card we made in class! Till then - Happy stampin'!!!!

I love love love this card! I have to buy the stamp set, I am dying to play with it!
BTW, I put your card up on my blogpost for today. I put your name on it and cut it down a little. If you want it off, then let me know. I figured you wouldn't mind.
