Santa's Soon To Be On His Way


Oh my gosh, can you believe it's December 1 and Christmas is only 24 days away.  Ready or not it's gonna be here soon and I've got soooooo much yet to do.  Bet your schedule is just as busy if not busier.

Our challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round this month is that Santa be the main focus of your card. That's about as eeesy peesy as it can get and I'm so hoping you will join in the challenge this month.

I must give credit to my dear DIL for these 2 adorable cards.  She and my son were visiting for a week around Thanksgiving and we took some time to play in the card shack.  Both cards were made with stickers  and DP I've had in my stash for a few years, I don't usually use stickers, Karla works wonders with them.  Thank you my dear DIL for all the help, not only in the card shack but for all you do when you come to visit.

Now hop on over to the CCAYR Challenge blog to leave my teamies some love for all all those Santa inspiration cards.

"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
