BBQ Santa

Christmas is coming so I thought I better get some digital stamps made ready to use on some cards this year. It is so hard to find Christmas stamps to suit Aussie Christmas. It is usually hot, people celebrate at the beach and my family always have a BBQ with our family and friends so I figured yep a BBQ Santa image would be perfect. So here he is 'BBQ Santa' which you can purchase from my etsy store now
Got to have an esky to keep the drinks cool and blue is the usually colour of these

Santa has managed to get a little sunburnt while down under

A lovely green santa sack full of gifts

Not Christmas without our fellow companion, our dog. I have gone for a Kelpie breed here.

Here is the finished card. i mounted it on kaisercraft cardstock and the pattern paper is also from kaisercraft 'christmas basecoat' with lovely native foliage. I used my own initiative and cut out some gum leaf shapes and made teeny tiny gum blossoms. Stuck a couple of star buttons on and tada.
'Christmas is in the air when it is in our hearts'
