Jolly Santa for Merry Monday

This week brings another new sketch over at Merry Monday! I had this all ready to post yesterday afternoon but ended up delayed until today.....some jerk HIT the bus that my special needs son it was turning into our DRIVEWAY!! Can you believe it? Thankfully my son and his driver and aide were all ok (and so was the guy who hit them, although I sure did want to hurt him!) but needless to say I didn't get near the computer the rest of the night since I was out with the Alaska State Troopers and such for an hour and a half, then had to make dinner and go to work. So here is a little public service announcement for people...when you come across a school bus the flashing lights and stop sign mean STOP, not "lets try and pass this bus because I want to be somewhere a minute sooner".

So here is my happy little Santa that brought a smile to my face yesterday! I used Dazzling Details and Frost White Shimmer Paint to give his outfit a little more sparkle but I kept everything else pretty simple!

Make sure you head over to Merry Monday and play along! Christmas cards are awesome to make no matter what time of year it is, at least I think so :)

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Jolly Holiday
Paper: Real Red, Baja Breeze, Naturals White, Candy Cane Christmas DSP
Ink: Real Red, Black StazOn
Accessories: Dazzling Details, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Paper Piercing Tool


  1. Okay...while I hate pink, I LOVE red and turquoise, especially together. This is one of my favorite cards I've seen Lisa. Great job! The paper piercing just rocks!

    I'm glad your son is okay. How scary. Big hugs.

  2. Thank you Rita, I am glad you like it!!

    And thank you for the comment about my son, I appreciate it! It definitely was not a fun way to close out the afternoon.

  3. Very cute, Christmas card, Lisa! Love that Santa & your papers! :)
