Here Comes Santana Claus!

What do you get when you cross Satan and Santa? You get whatever I scribbled into my little notebook to remind me of the Merry Monday Challenge this week.  It looks suspiciously like Santana Claus,which I suspect looks more like this guy:
Than he does these guys:

So there you have it, a couple of quick Santa Claus cards that I whipped up last night out of the few holiday bits and bobs that I pulled out and already put away.

The Fine Print: The problem with being that efficient is I forgot to check and see who made that Santa stamp before I put it away. It's a wood mounted stamp that I've had quite a while and use often (but apparently never show on my blog). Stitched circle die by MFT, scallop circle by Spellbinders, designer paper by Basic Gray (top) and DCWV (bottom), ribbon, pearls, and holly pick leaves from my stash.  Merry Not Christmas, Y'all.

Aw, this was cute! Your 2 cute Santas really do look like this happy & cheery old Elf. Love his tropical shirt & hat too. Great way to use the little circle images to create a sweet card. Love the design papers and the way you've 'wrapped' the cards. (these are great snippets cards too, just in case you didn't think about that.) Cute, cute, cute! TFS & have a great Ground Hog day.

Santana Claus looks a little scary - and altogether too brightly coloured for me! I much prefer your two little chaps with their traditional red and green. Cute as pie!
