Santa Claus Is Coming To Town


Santa is hard at work getting packed and ready to come to town! This week all the fun stamp images from Stampendous are being highlighted with the design team and over on the Stampendous blog!

I had this fun Santa image colored up and ready for a project, this week was a perfect time to finish it up!


I've put this card together in a whimsical style just suited for the fabulous designs by Nicoletta Zanella from Pink Your Life. You can see more of her fantastic stamps on the Stampendous website, but for my friends in Europe go to Pink Your Life for a purchase!

If you want project information just keep scrolling down to the bottom of my post or you can hop on over to see the team's makes.
