Santa Claus is coming .......

.... to town! 

And he is checking his list - and checking it twice!
But I know all of you, my friends,
are all on the nice list ♥

Isn't this image darling!
I really, really, really, REALLY love images of Santa!
This darling Stampendous "secret santa" stamp was sent to the 3M
this month by Barb, our hostess for December.
When I saw it, I was instantly smitten!

I actually colored up this Santa at 1 am,
waiting for my daughter to come home with her boyfriend from a date.
I was sleep deprived and seeing cross-eyed ...
so imagine my (pleasant) surprise to wake up the next day
and see how beautifully it was colored - ROFL!!
Guess I found my perfect time to color and the conditions to color in! :)

For the inside of my card,
I used one of the fabulous sentiment stamps from The Project Bin.
The stamp is from the Maybe Christmas stamp set
and a perfect match to this - and any - holiday card ♥

Be sure to stop on over to see what Barb and Jeanette made
with this secret santa stamp! 

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
