Ho Ho Ho!

Christmas?  Already?  Yup, already!  If you’ve been in many stores lately you’ll see that a lot of them have started putting up Christmas decorations, some have had them up for a few months now!  Isn’t it crazy?  Here’s the thing though, if you make your cards then you need to get an early start.  Waiting until the last minute to make Christmas cards can be stressful, trust me, I’ve been there.  Wowzers!  So, I’m starting early this year… check this cutie out!

I case’d this card from Lynn Pratt, thanks Lynn.  I saw it on Pinterest and just fell in love!  I switched it up a little from her original, but not much.  Isn’t it adorable?  I used the More Merry Messages set for the sentiment, I love how it just goes right along with the idea of Santa and his beard and belt!  This immediately brought me back to my childhood and made me think of Santa, Christmas wishes, Christmas morning, and the surprises that were waiting under the tree!  What wonderful memories of childhood!

This is a sneak peek at just one of the cards we’ll be making at my upcoming 10/10/25 classes on October 26th, 27th, and 28th.  Just like the name implies, we’ll do 10 cards with 10 envelopes for $25.00.  RSVP and pre-payment are required by the 16th, which is fast approaching so don’t miss out.  If you can’t make it to class I can send you the materials by mail, so contact me for details.  You can see more details about the class including times on my Stampin’ Up! ® web calendar.  Hope to see you there!
