Santa Claus is Coming To Town!

I know!  Today is Halloween but that just means Christmas is around the corner right? At least that's what Walmart is saying.  I stopped there on Tuesday to grab some Halloween Candy and it had already been moved from the seasonal aisle and replaced by Christmas goodies!   I did find some Halloween treats through although it was already picked over.   An now.... trick or treating may be postponed to Friday due to some strong winds and storms headed our way and expected to hit at the Trick or Treat hours!

I usually start making Christmas cards early though and I have already posted a few here on my blog!  Here is another card I wanted to share with my new favorite Christmas stamp from Close To My Heart's Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide - Santa Claus (C1567).  I'm a sucker for anything Santa so no surprise that this one is a favorite.



I used the sketch from Clean & Simple #264 turning it horizontal.  I stamped Santa in Ruby ink and stamped the reindeer in Chocolate ink.  I used my Ruby marker to color the reindeer's belts but once I added the Bitty Sparkles you couldn't really tell I colored them.   But I like the way they look. The Merry Christmas shape was cut with the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  The Santa Claus stamp has TWO stamps that coordinate with the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.
