Checked by Santa

Can you believe it's already March?  So, you know what that means, right?  It's time for another Christmas card!  Ha!

I have to say that Waltzingmouse Stamps has the most awesome holiday stamp sets (pssst! and I have most of them!).  I chose to use the Around Christmas Time set and Sketch #86 from this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to make the card.

Here is what I came up with:

I am very happy with how the card turned out.  It's quick to make and easy to mail.  So, I'll make a few more of these for my holiday card stash.  Yay!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Cardstock: PTI Kraft and Vintage Cream
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon Holiday Style
Stamps: WMS Around Christmas Time
Ink: Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup and Seed Packet
Other: PTI New Leaf grosgrain ribbon, MFT Decorative Doily Duo die, circle punches
