Susie + Vikki's Christmas Club - Very Vintage Christmas

The theme for Susie + Vikki's Christmas Club this week is 'Very Vintage Christmas'.  Pop over and join in if you want to get a head start on making your Christmas cards this year - how hard can it be to make just one a week?  ;-)  I thought I'd struggle with this as I thought I didn't have any vintage Christmas stamps but had thought of using an angel stamp and did have some papers I thought would be suitable, problem is I couldn't find them, though a thought has just occurred to me.  However I remembered I have a Tim Holtz mini Christmas stamp that would've been suitable but have ended up using an image from the Rum + Raisin PaperArtsy papers I bought a couple of weeks ago.  The background papers are also Rum + Raisin.

Wonderful, definitely very vintage. I think I'm going to regret my own self imposed ban an Christmas cards!!

Wow, I really love that Santa. Your card is gorgeous. The idea of creating one card a week is daunting to me. When I make cards, which I don't do that much, I make a bunch all the same kind. You have real staying power, Anne.

I wanted to tell you, if your name is drawn in my giveaway, yes, I will send the prize to you. Not a problem. I should have added worldwide, but didn't. Thanks for asking.
