Two More for Santa's Sleigh Ride!

Well, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!
My Black, Gold, & White Glitzy Santa's Sleigh (2nd below) has been chosen as a
SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS WEEKLY FAVORITE FOR THE
WEEK ENDING JANUARY 8, 2017!

My last two Santa's Sleigh bundle cards would be for my youngest two children. Jackie (and her new husband, Josh).  Jackie, my third child, always wanted to make gingerbread cookies, gingerbread houses,  and other Christmas cookies when she was young.  She love to put on the frosting and decorate them with all sorts of candies.  I found the perfect piece of Christmas paper, which was all about those gingerbread men jumping out of the oven saying, "Run, run as fast as you can; you'll never catch me for I'm the gingerbread man!"  Take a peek below at Jackie's card. . .I'm sure she will love it!




My final Santa's Sleigh card would be for my fourth child, Mark and his lovely wife, Ginger.  I thought I'd switch back for whimsical to elegant.  I seems to really love working with black and white on my Christmas cards, and I had purchased a Recollections stack of lovely papers that were all about black and white!  I really wanted to use one of these elegant papers so I selected one from the stack for my focal paper, and I was ready to begin.  Searching for the perfect Christmas three would be my theme for this card. . .a lovely Christmas tree to delivered to their door a wonderful sleigh and cute little reindeer.  Take a look below at this fourth card. . .I'm so pleased with the way it turned out, and I think Mark and Ginger will be equally pleased!
