Happy Christmas

Hello - I hope my fellow US residents had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.  It was just hubs and I and a low key day with football and turkey.  Since its just the two of us I did not cook a whole bird. I had a turkey breast along with the trimmings for our meal and it was good, but the leftovers...those seem to taste better than the first meal.  We  have enough left for one more plate of scrumptiousness which I'll be serving Sunday to more football.

Today's card is for three challenges - Christmas Kickstart - Show us your Santas, Double D Challenge - Mood Board below, Watercooler Wednesday - All about occasions.

Weirdly enough I have very few Santa stamps...I could only find this one by Clearly Besotted...I might have one more somewhere.  I stamped him and colored with copic markers. Next I over-stamped him with versafine black onyx ink to give nice crisp lines (thank goodness for the Misti).  The coverplate is from Mama Elephant and I love it. So much you can do with winter and the holidays. The sentiment comes from MFT.


Thanks so much for visiting!

Gorgeous card, Cat. I love that cover plate too - so versatile. Your Santa is lovely and I love your top tip of over stamping in Versafine for a crisp finish. I've never thought to try that. Thanks goodness for the marvellous Misti! Thanks for playing at The Christmas Kickstart again, always good to have you join the fun, Jo x

We polished off the leftovers Sunday, too, Cat! okay - I MIGHT have a tiny bit of candied yams stashed in the fridge for lunch - shhhh!
One Santa is all you need when he's this cute, btw. and there are those fabulous trees again!
Darling creation, my friend!

Realized a couple of years ago that I have two rather complex vintage Santa stamps and that's about it. Hey, it was a goal... so now I have a few more. Your little Santa is a cute one! Really love the tree die background. Good to see you in our challenge at Double D, Cat!
