Merry and Bright (delayed July Rudolph Days)

I can only guess that someone actually took their cat to sit on Santa's lap and this happened!!!

Hi, Friends.....

Scrappy Mo was enjoying a vacay and delayed her Rudolph Days Challenge for July to the first week of August (thru the 7th, so you still have time to participate!!). I made a Graphic 45 card for this Anything Goes Christmas challenge, using cutaparts from the Place in Time collection. Instant card....I LOVE it!!

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 - Place in Time collection
Core'dinations kraft cardstock and scraps for mats and card base
DCWV scrap for background

Hope you like this super-easy, but nostalgic card. Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Your card shows a much happier Santa than the picture above it! OUCH!! Super cute and vintage fun card for Rudy days and I love the frame work too!

  2. Lovely Christmas card, Janis. Your Santa looks so jolly. xx

  3. OH MY GOSH...that Santa scene with the cat is hilarious!! Poor Santa... Bad enough to work as a mall Santa without wresting an irate kitty. The Graphic 45 Santa doesn't look all that much happier, with those wriggling kids on his lap but at least they don't have sharp claws. I really need to get cracking on some Graphic 45 cards because I always love the results when you share one. Must....stop.....hoarding....

  4. Great card and I love the scene. He seems top be having better luck with the kiddos than the cat hahahahahaha :-D xxx
