    1. Thanks, Diane!! I got the Jillian Bean letters in a mystery clearance package from Peachy Cheap and the thought pop in my head, say use a couple of letters behind Santa. So decided to keep it short!

  2. A fun card Becca, and a great assortment of fun papers

  3. Of course SANTA dresses in warm clothing - perfect! Very fun take on the challenge, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Sparkles!

  4. Santa knows how to keep warm. Thanks for joining us at Sparkles Christmas. Caz. DT
