52CCT: April Theme

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

~ From 'Twas the Night Before Christmas 
by Clement Clarke Moore ~

So, who was Clement talking about?!  Santa Claus, of course!  Who else?!  And guess what?!  That's our theme this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  We want to see cards with Santa on them!

Here's the inspiration board~

My card~

Details~





I've used a sweet image and sentiment by Hot off the Press, patterned papers from DCWV and SU!, ribbon and lace by May Arts, red pearls from Ruth, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

I do hope you'll come and join in the fun this week!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek--I hope you'll do the same and leave some love with the other gals on the DT!  Oh, and COME JOIN US!!!  Merry stamping to all, and to all a good morning! ;)

Mynnette, I like how your sentiment matches up with your image. It's cute! I also really like your little details like the ribbon and pearls. Great card!

I love the old fashioned feel of this card! I also love how you layered the ribbon and lace. Of course it wouldn't be a Mynn card without your signature pieces of bling too. Hugs dear lady. D
