So for my project today I decided to make a card. With a a new little one, my time is very limited to crafting.  So I knew I needed to make something that is quick and easy but still cute :0)  I had quite a few of these little thin wooden Santa's that I purchased last year at Michael's after Christmas sale.  I think I paid about 10 cents for each of them.  I had been wondering what I was going to use them for and now I know.  They will be part of the Christmas cards I send out this year.  Here are all the details...

Card size is standard A2 (4 1/2" x 5 1/2")
Wooden Decorated Santa - Michael's 
Patterned Paper – American Crafts “Peppermint Express”
Kraft Cardstock - Recollections
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Standard Circles and Classic Scalloped Circle
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Ribbon Banners
Red Sequins 8mm
White Gel Pen
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Glue Dots
Foam Tape

Again, a super quick and easy card!!  Perfect for Christmastime!!  Remember, quick and easy cards can still look cute ;0)  Well, I hope you found some inspiration and have enjoyed my project for today's Christmas Blog Hop.
