I believe in Santa Claus...

I believe in Santa Claus, I'll tell you why I do
'cause I believe that dreams and plans and wishes can come true
I believe in miracles, I believe in magic too
Oh I believe in Santa Claus and I believe in you...

Hello everybody!
Well unfortunately I am on day two without an internet connection. It's kind of amazing to realize just how much of my little world relies upon on it. I think I would be having fits if I wasn't lucky enough to have a little sis who loves and adores me (hahahahaha!) and will share her computer with me. Thanks Jac... I'll put a good word in with Santa for you this year. ;)

Speaking of Santa... my card for today is very different from the usual cards I share on here. I actually used stamps that don't need to be colored in, though I did sneak in some red on Santa's suit. I just couldn't help myself, LOL! The stamps are from Unity and their vintage charm won me over as soon as I saw them... that and the free shipping on all orders 'til the end of the year. :)

Anywho, this one was super quick, like under 15 minutes quick, because the entire thing was made out of paper scraps and bits and pieces that tend to float around my desk until they are glued down to something. But even though it is pretty different, different can be good and I had a lot of fun with this one.

Alrighty, time for me to get busy, busy, busy. Be good my friends... only a few days left to get on that nice list. ;)
