Jolly Old Saint Nick

Thank you all for your sweet comments on yesterday's posts both here on my blog and at Two Peas. You are the best!! =)

Here is a card that I made for this week's Clean & Simple Christmas Card challenge over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.


I used Jane Beljo's adorable Jolly Old Saint Nick for my card. I colored him last year when the stamp was released, but never got a chance to use him on a card. Now a year later, he still looks pretty handsome and jolly to me. =)


The white piece was stamped with the snowflake stamp from this set with VersaMark then colored with chalk. I won this chalk set as a blog candy from the sweetest Amy along with many other fab supplies. Big thanks, girl! =)


I stamped Hero Arts A Lot Like Christmas background stamp with VersaMark on the card base. The holly is from this set also by Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions' Season's Sweetings set and the polka dot patterned paper is from PTI.

That's all I have for today. Hope you will have a chance to join us this week.

Have a lovely day, my friends! =)
