JAI 194 - Just add Santa

Hello there,
well this week marks the beginning of Christmas party season for our house and we'll be ending it with decorating for Christmas (the kids can't wait (smile). One of the real pleasures of parent hood is their infectious delight and enthusiasm). It is kind of nice to have a bit of a change of pace and some fun as well so I'm looking forward to some Christmas activities! At Just Add Ink this week we can help you out with this too as we have a Christmas themed challenge for you - this week we want you to Just Add Santa.

I used a Merry Monday sketch from earlier this year to put together a slightly quirky Santa Christmas card. 

Christmas and music go together so it wasn't hard to pick out a DSP pattern to work with Santa, and of course you can't go past ho, ho, ho either :) 

Hope you can join us this week! Do check out the rest of the JAI DT they will be sure to get you inspired for the beginning of the Christmas season.

Thanks for visiting,

Recipe: All SU! unless otherwise noted
Stamps: Santa's List, Oh, Goodie!
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, Very Vanilla

  1. Kim I really love how you've used the music dsp for your xmas card - you are right music and xmas just go together :)

  2. Kim this card is lovely. I like how you have put the Ho Ho Ho is circles that seem to rise up off the card and the lovely black belly band. Have a lovely weekend.

  3. You're so very clever Kim! This sketch works so well with your Ho, Ho, Ho's and the Santa's belt is a clever addition too!

  4. Such a great layout Kim, the santa belly belt is inspired and the music DSP works the Ho,Ho,Ho..:0)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
