Merry Monday 268:





Happy Monday!  We are one week closer to Christmas!!  Only THREE more weeks - sqqqqquuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!



This week at Merry Monday, I would like you to put a SANTA HAT on your Christmas card:





Now it doesn't need to be Santa himself, the hat is fine.  I honestly don't much care for Santa, but this little pup dressed up as Santa totally made my day!  I am a dog person, not a Santa person LOL.

I also learnt in England they call Santa Father Christmas and he wears green instead of red.  So that is what inspired my card today!



I basically kept this card pretty simple and the idea came to me pretty quickly (which is usually the opposite), so all in all it was a breeze to create =)






Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Christmas Bear
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Celebrate, My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 (retired), Reverse Confetti Christmas Bear
Extras:  Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil, Stampin' Up! cardstock, Reverse Confetti Midnight Ink



 As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!

A fun challenge and a cute green Santa hat Deanne. Love the background and the scallop mat.

Fun challenge, Deanne, and I see we went in the same direction with the hat on a sentiment. I had to resist duplicating a card I made last year with a Santa hat draped over a chair... Just love the green sentiment with the pop of the glittery hat and what a pretty background with the dot fade stencil - so soft and subtle!! (Sorry - had to delete my first comment due to my typing boo-boo)

Deanne,
Great challenge this week and what a cute glittery Santa hat. Great take on the challenge. Have a great week!

Deanne, thanks for the fun challenge, although I have no stamps with just Santa hats, so I had to do the whole Santa. Your card is pretty in the green.
Have a great week

Love this Deanne - did you know Santa always used to be dressed in green not only in the UK? I read somewhere that it is the Coca Cola Company who are credited with turning his outfit red after using it in one of their early festive advertising campaigns? And yes, we do call Santa Father Christmas here - I did not know that that was particular to the UK though! Love your cute card with the hat perfectly perched on the negative diecut space!
