Merry Monday # 146 Santa!!

Hi!
Our first snow day!  That makes it a four day weekend here!  Apologies to the northeast (Boston, etc) who, I'm sure, are completely over it!


I'm having so much fun playing along with the Merry Monday challenges!  I've never participated before and it's nice to see my stockpile of holiday cards growing each week.

This week's theme is SANTA.  Do you know I only have one Santa image.  One.  That seems hard to believe.  This is from an old Stampin Up set called Holiday Tag Team.  I'm so happy with the way this card turned out, simple and fun.  



I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers and then debated on what to do with the background.  I started drawing little dots in pink and gray, then added a bit of yellow.  It just took on a little, happy life of its own!  It kind of looks like he is dancing amidst confetti or something, doesn't it? The sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs and the die is from Simon Says Stamp.

Come play along with the challenge!  At least come check out the entries from the design team and the other entrants!!




Hope you find time to do something creative today!
Mary

  1. Hi, Mary! It's our second snow day here in southern NJ...I'm guessing are not too far away from each other! (I'm with you, I secretly wanted it to snow so we could have a 4-day weekend!) I adore your Santa card, it does look like he's dancing in a fun shower of confetti! What a fun image, too...if you had to own one Santa image, this is a good one to have! I love your clean and simple card, so festive ands fun!
