Monday Challenge!

Another Monday Challenge with Amber, Brooke, AJ, Maren, Jennifer and Jeanne! This week was to make a Santa card! Since I don't have a Unity Santa I went with an old stamp(Anita's) I've had for years and had never inked it up til tonight. But I did use the Unity Ho, Ho, Ho stamp! The bg paper is Cosmo Cricket and the Holly is Making Memories. Other wise no embellishments, just a simple card for the paperboy!!

Inside the card....I made a pocket for a gift card! It's ready to stick in the door! Funny story, last year my friend stuck a package in our door late after we had gone to bed. The next day she asked about it and I said I didn't get a package! Later that night we found it in the door, the paperboy thought it was for him and took it home that morning, when he opened it he realized it wasn't for him! (I gave him a hand knit stocking cap!) Any way, it was funny! Also, the large bottle brush tree in the background was the tree my mom bought for 89cents from Woolworth's in the early 60's. It was our Christmas tree that year, it was all they could afford. I love it! Now to make more cards!
