A little Christmas cheer

I thought I would bring a little Christmas spirit to my blog today. Here is an ATC I made using a Santa image from Lisa Vollrath's countdown over at Ten Two Studios. This image is one from December 3. As usual, you can always find the link on my blog sidebar while her giveaway is in progress.

Santa looks so tired, and his journey seems so long, I can't help believing he was wondering where his reindeer were. So I named this one "Where are those durned reindeer?"

Another free image came from Carol Anne's wonderful blog. Here is a direct link to the photo I used, but please check out her blog because it has a ton of gorgeous stuff you can download.

I have to admit, this ATC got out of hand. It did not want to be what I started out thinking it would be. In the middle of the design process, this ATC took on a mind of its own, and I have to admit, it turned out better than I expected, although these are not two color combinations I would have thought of.

Click on either or both for a closer view.

Both of these ATCs are AWEsome! Poor Santa . . . he's looking like I'm feeling right now. He looks like he's in desperate need of reindeer and some elves too! Love the dress on the second image, and thanks so much for introducing me to Carol Anne's beautiful blog.

Can't thank you enough for your visit and sweet comments! You've made my day sparkle just a bit brighter! Hugs, Terri
