Dapper Denim.......PP310





For someone who is not really ready to make Christmas cards I seem to be making them anyway!  I couldn't resist the Greetings from Santa bundle with this fabulous Santa die cut from Stampin' Up!  A version of this just may become the card I make 50 of this year for the holidays - I love it with all sorts of colors and textures behind the Santa face. This version is backed by Dapper Denim with a touch of red and gold.

But in between cards I am still enjoying this Dapper Denim view........time to store up the sunshine as fall will be here before we know it!





My oh so talented stamping buddy Nance Leedy has a great sketch for us this week at the Paper Players!

Oh, I am still on the fence about purchasing this die, but I do love him! He looks fabulous with the Denim background as well as his pretty stars! AND your Dapper Denim scenery is fabulous too! Enjoy it while you can!

What a handsome Santa! Love his swirly beard and you've used the sketch perfectly. Oh, that blue sure is gorgeous both on your card and in the sky. Soak it up while you can!

Linda I love your card and never thought it about it going landscape... but too funny. I just posted this very card on my blog in dark blue. I just love this die and just told Nancy L (mom) how easy it would be to whip out a Christmas cards ... so you know where my mind is at!
However....just love that it's not too close yet, just wish I had a lake with that view to put my feet up against! Hugs.
