Hi there!  I'm so glad you could visit me for a fun little Christmas card today.  I couldn't resist snowman and Santa images.  I stamped each on a small square, drew in a frame and my ground and colored them up.  It couldn't have been any more simple.  The small images reminded me of pictures you might see in a film negative (oops, I might be dating myself here!), so that is how I came up with my sketch.  Since this set is all images, I borrowed a sentiment from a fabulous Mark's Finest Papers mini set called Christmas Wreath Mini.  I think it works perfectly!
 
That's all from me today.  Don't forget to stop by Tangii's blog to see what treat she has in store for you.

Like the Clean & Simple (CAS) style use of the mini set with the wonderful background embossing. I rcvd the 4 reg stamp sets. You're lucky to have rcvd all the sets including the mini set & window set. Oh to be a Sr DT. Did you see the scrapbook layout I did of a Cheetah sketch my daughter created for me and I used MFP Big Cats stamps posted in the Speedy TV MFP Scrapbook Gallery?
