Here Comes Santa

Julie chose a theme of "Here Comes Santa" for this week’s challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges. Bugaboo Stamps is our generous sponsor this week. The top pick will receive 7 digital images from Bugaboo.

For my card this week I chose to use a sketch I was using for a card swap with one of my Yahoo groups. I love the combination of papers, stamps and punches. The Santa Stamp I used was by Kenny K. Downloads and the sentiment is by Stampin Up.

Come join us at Holly Jolly this week, need some inspiration hop over to Holly Jolly and see the creations of the other Christmas Elves.
