Do You Believe?

Do you believe in Santa Claus? I do, or at least I do believe in the magic of Christmas. I love watching adults transform into kids again at the mere sight of a Christmas tree with a train running around it, or how people get a sparkle in their eye when they see Santa at the mall, evoking happy memories of Christmas's past. We go all out decorating our house for the holidays, we have 6 full size trees!! A huge village and tons of other holiday decor my favorite has to be our 5' dancing Santa, I love watching the kids hold his hands and dance with him.

We are so lucky both our girls still believe in Santa Claus I thought by now Steph our 12 1/2 year old would have out grown Santa, but I am so happy she hasn't I hope she believes forever! Megan just loves Santa too!

Back to the card.......LOL! I made this card using Beate's weekend sketch challenge you will find that here Fresh and Fun. I love the layout but did find it a bit difficult to work with I just may have to try another one......LOL!

Supplies: Inkadinkado stamps, Real red, Old olive, River rock and VV card stock, Dashing DP, Real red ink, Bling, Brads, holly leaves and berry brads, ticket corner punch, and Dimesionals.

Beautiful card! Love the Christmasy colors. I LOVE Christmas--my favorite time of year. I try not to get too into the secular part of it, but I definately believe in the birth of Jesus and the 'Magic' or Spirit of Christmas.
