Snowy sunday and SU santa's!!

Morning Peeps!!
It is still nice and snowy here, the sun is shining so it may melt a bit but we are forecast a little more later tonight.
A couple of weeks ago at cricut club my lovely friend ,Heather, lent me her stampin up santa to stamp a few times for some christmas cards for my Aunt Audrey.
I stamped them in brown memento ink and they came out so beautifully. I wanted to keep the vintage kind of look so there was no colouring for this santa, just a bit of frayed burlap distress inking around the edge to match it all in the brown vintage effect.
The pretty embossed brown paper on the card is a sort of browny bronzey colour and I got it when I went to the kanban factory open day last year, its really is yummy.
I made some holly with my martha stewart punch and some red card candy.
I think my Aunty will love them. She only wanted 6 but I made her 7 for an extra one!!!!
The little firplace next to it is our christmas ornament!! it is my favourite as i love the little hanging stockings with our names on! its really cute.
I am hoping that with its monochrome look this card will be ok for the Allsorts challenge blogs Monochrome challenge. (If its not quite right ladies I won't be offended xxxx)
So Mo and I are just sitting on the settee with some yummy grapes waiting for a little visit from nannie and grandad and our frozen food from asda (.......which didn't arrive with the rest of the shopping last night, grrrrr!!).
Have a super snowy sunday!!!
Hugs Lou xxxxx
