Default WT609 ~ Dear Santa (11/10/16)

Happy Thursday, it's Ways to Use It time. Carla here as your Hostess Elf because this week is Dear Santa Letter Week! So let's get those letters written to Santa and posted to the North Pole. Use a fun text stamp or type up your Christmas wishes, and please don't forget a Santa image! I found some fun children's handwriting fonts here. To install fonts, open the .ttf file and the Install Font button is in the lower right corner. There'll be dessert, maybe candy canes, for actual letters to Santa!


For some more fun, wouldn't it be great to see the surprise on a child's or adult's face when they get a letter back! The United States Postal Service has a Letters FROM Santa program.


Dear Santa, I've been good for the last week, can we call that good?


Now, here's some inspiration to get those cards going!


Dear Santa, Please leave one tall, dark handsome man under my tree. Rudolf is safe and will be returned unharmed!

Can't wait to your fun creations, especially the Santa letters. When you're done, upload your card with the keyword WT609, and then come back and share a link here to make it easy for people to find your card.

Here's a link to the WT609 gallery. Take a look and be sure to leave some love for your fellow stampers

Dear Santa, Don't forget all the great people at Splitcoaststampers. They deserve something extra special in their stockings!

Thank you Lisa and Sabrina for your marvelous samples!
Lisa's Christmas Kitten
Sabrina's Dear Santa

I couldn't resist making two, here are my cards,
Dear Santa...
Santa Baby!

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Here is my card for today, couldn't find any letter to santa style tags or stamps, so used letter tiles instead.

Heart WT609 Warmest Greetings

Had fun making my own "Santa letter"- and used a paper coffee cup for my sentiment. Added some washi tape and a green element- a coffee sleeve- above my jolly Santa. Here's Warmest Greetings

Default Santa says...

I saw this challenge last week and KNEW I wanted to do it, but had no time in which to play. First chance to rectify that came today, so I made two!
