HO HO HO!!!!!!!!

Hey there blogland! Time to wake up!:) It's Monday and we have another challenge from AJ, Jennifer Buck (henceforth called "Buckie"), Maren, Brooke, and Jeanne! The challenge this week is SANTA!!!!!!!!! That's right, bust out the Santa stamps, I know they're sitting on your desks waiting for the 26th so they can be put away for a year, lol! I know mine are! I chose to work with the cute little santa from Bitty Christmas Tags! I'm really getting some mileage out of this set I'll tell you what! I love sets that can be used for tons of different projects, money well spent:)
I *adore* old, country Christmas themed decorations and such and it's what all my stuff is *although it's still in boxes somewhere, lol!* so I wanted to make this card with a country feel, makes me feel right at home! The dp is from MME, loooove the distressed, winteriness of this paper! I masked the santa and stamped a tree from the same set behind him!
Head on over to the girls' blogs to see some more of our jolly fat man!
Monday is also Unity Sketch Day over in the Forums! This weeks sketch was alot of fun, we hope you'll play along! You don't *have* to use Unity for the sketch, we'd still love to see your cards!

If you play along and add this card to SCS, use keywords UNITY and USCSC7!
Here's my card for the sketch:
The stamps are all from the December KOM, it's got PERFECT stamps to go for the next big holiday, VALENTINE'S DAY! Every girls FAVORITE:)
Maren and Brooke made samples for the sketch also! Here's {Brooke's} card, isn't it cute? Love that santa!!!!!!!! She even used her gel pen to make his beard whiter, love it:)
Maren is such an over-achiever, she already posted her card on her blog! Check it out {HERE}, it's SO Maren, and SO adorable:) Thanks for the samples ladies!
Okay, I'm off to get ready for bed (it's Monday night here, YEAH!) Did I forget to brag? I only have to work tomorrow and wednesday, and then I'm OFF FOR 11 DAYS STRAIGHT! That's right, I love my job:)
Have a fantastic Monday!
