Well, when I saw this Whipper Snapper stamp I knew I had to get it. I thought the brick background from CHF would go good with santa. I sat dow to make the christmas cards yesterday, and it took me 32 minutes to color in 3 santa's. Not including cutting out santa, stamping background and cutting card stock. Guess I am not able to mass produce these cards. Off to think of another Christmas card to make!

I agree - not one to mass produce - but he is just too cute, and your coloring is great! So bright and cheery too.
Just an idea/hint, so you don't have to cut out around the stars in his hand next time - stamp the image on your card first (maybe mask the stars?)...then when you cut out around Santa, just layer the cut-out over your first impression. Something I do when I put butterflies on a card so I don't have to cut out around the antennas. KWIM? :)

Super cute! I love that brick background....it's special to me since CHF made it upon my request. :) I love your coloring of the Santa. I agree, it would be hard to mass produce, but it's a great card!
