Christmas Card Club Challenge # 3 - Jolly Santa

Good morning to you all and thanks for dropping by.  Today it is time for another card from our friendly little group who make our Christmas cards throughout the year so that we don't have a mad panic close to the time.  If you would like to join us please let me know.  You can find the blogs of my other CCC pals on my right side bar.  The lovely Lorraine has chosen for her theme this week "Jolly Santa".

My Card

5" scalloped card base
Snowflake Lattice embossing folder - Creative expressions
Holly Corner - Cheery Lynn
Image - Cuddly Buddly
Pearls - from stash

I have kept my card simple and flat enough for minimum postage.  I think Santa and his two pals knew the theme this week because they are all smiling.

The weather is still bitterly cold and although we don't have the amount of snow forecast I think this a day to be spent inside crafting.  As if we need an excuse !!!

Keep warm and well.

Bright, festive & fun. Lovely coloring, and the image is just so cute. Good choices with the red & white - the layering reminds of the peppermint candy striping of the season. Loved the holly leaves trimming the corner and the pretty scallop edges. TFS & Hgus.
