Stocking Santa

Ready for another Santa Stocking card?

I have warned you that I have really fallen for this Stocking Santa range from Bugaboo right now. There is a certain charm about him. This is the Milk and Cookie one.


If you follow my blog, you'll know I like to let the image speak volumes so my cards are quite clean and simple. This is why I love the Papertrey Background Basic stamps! I have bought a few more lately. This is the twinkling one. So easy to build effective backgrounds which look amazing but don't detract from the focal point. The sentiment is also from PTI.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Sew Many Cards ~ Cookies      Polka Doodles ~ Christmas in July
Class Act Inspiration ~ Christmas     Christmas Stampin ~ Fave colour (definetly red at Christmas)
Card Makin Mamas ~ Food and Drink     Simple Create ~ Christmas Time
CASE Study ~ Backgrounds     Craft Us Crazy ~ Anything Goes
Digi Doodle ~ Clean and Simple     Sassy Studio ~ Clean and Simple

Just had a look around your site. Great cards! I love this one. Such a nice clean, crisp look. I love CAS cards, although, I'm not too good at them. Thanks for joining us at Digi Doodle Shop this week.
