Around Thanksgiving I discovered some awesome local paper. I used a bit of it on a Christmas card. I hope to have time to make some more, although time is running very short! If anyone is reading this blog, you may be getting tired of seeing the ornament stamps. I didn't bring much with me in the way of Christmas stamps so I have to use them a lot. Sorry!

You might not be able to see the "Merry Christmas" on the front of the card. It is the only sentiment I used because, as I've said before, I'm not feeling very merry about Christmas this year. So I pretty much leave my insides blank and write a note in them.

A Santa Card

I don't generally use Santa on cards, preferring to focus on Jesus at Christmas. However, I do have this one very old stamp with Santa (or a version of Santa) on it. The image fit nicely for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch, that was my sole motivation for using it!

This card is a conglomeration of supplies from so many companies! There is a stamp from Stampin' Up (the background), the Santa stamp of unknown origin purchased a thousand years ago, ribbon from who-knows-where, Stampin' Up paper, Creative Memories paper, Copic markers, SU markers, etc. Hmmm... nothing from Verve - the sponsor of Mojo Monday! Oops! I don't have any Christmas stamps from Verve yet and at the moment it's hard to do anything other than Christmas.
