Vintage Santa's here again!

Well here's my first Christmas card of 2012 !  my sister tells me she has nearly made enough cards for this year, I'm always going to get going early but never do. What got me started was Sugar Creek Hollows challenge for Christmas in July card in Vintage or Shabby Chic style. here I've used my Stampendous vintage santa , graphiv 45 papers and my new spellbinders layered poinsettia die which I couldn't get hold of last year so made sure I had it this time around.A few more challenges it will fit I think

Fussy and Fancy - vintage-with distressing and lace
Fashionable stamping - anything goes
Hiding in my craft room - Christmas in July

  15. A wonderful Christmas card, can't quite get into yet myself. All of your previous cards are as stunning as usual. You don't loose your mojo you know, it only takes a short break for you to rejuvenate your creativity - sounds good doesn't it? Sorry I haven't been around for a while, in a bit of a black hole. Thanks for all your recent comments. Hugs Caz
