Dear Santa

Can you believe I colored this Santa image last year and just didn't have time to make a card out of it before the big day arrived?  I have also had this paper for ages.  I bought it at some time at Joanne Fabrics when it was on the clearance rack and am just now getting around to pulling it out and using it.  It fit my image perfectly.
This fits the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge  S-is for Santa (extra not red)
Alphabet Challenge  U-unused stash  (gems and paper, plus the image)
Christmas Blog Challenge  monochromatic Christmas card
Stampin For The Weekend    Tag it!  I added a little tag to my card

Hi Sally, don't worry I think we all do that, colour an image and sometime don't use it. Your card is lovely and so are your design papers, it looks great.
Thanks so much for joining us this week at SSW and good luck.
