It must be Christmas in August!  It's the only way that I can explain today's two sets.  I used Dear Santa today on a simple Christmas card.  I relied on my Copic Markers and some fun patterned paper.  I scored and sanded a simple frame for Santa and his classic statement! 
This little guy comes from a set named "Brrrr".  He has a couple other friends in the set with him, but he looked so sweet I had to use him first.  I doodled a bunch on this card.  I drew in my snow, snowflakes and the bottom of his sweater.  I die cut a doily and glued it down and then taped down a double layer of ribbon.  Fun stuff today!  I hope it puts you in the mood for Winter!
Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to Janine's blog for more creativity.

Sweet cards - love the doodling. Christmas Cards yes but not ready for winter - sunny late summer and autumn days - yes!

Great cards. I what caught my eye first on your Santa card was the scored and sanded frame. It is subtle, but really added interest to the card. I love the colors your used with your snowman. The teal doily looks so pretty. You did a great job showcasing this month's sets.
