Santa Knows

     One more Christmas card in the stockpile and another entry in the Catch the Bug week-long Christmas challenge.  Today they have a recipe challenge: 1 ribbon or twine; 2 dp; 3 embellies.  This image is one of their Old World Santas.


     Colored with chalks this time and die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The maroon mat (cut from a scrap) is also a Spellbinders' die cut but it was taller than the card dimensions so I cut it in half and overlapped it at the middle to shorten it to size.  The dp were both scraps in my Christmas stash.  The sentiment is mine; printed, hand cut, and matted and the 3 diamond shapes are metal brads.

     Challenges:

     Short and sweet again but it's a busy week for me with family commitments so the posts will be quick even if the cards aren't.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
