Jolly (and Lucky) Old Saint Nicholas

This week we're celebrating Jolly Old Saint Nicholas by creating cards that feature Santa Claus.

And for Friday the 13th, we decided to make it someone's Lucky Day (and hopefully make them a little Jolly) ... one random cardmaker in this week's prompt will be chosen to be a Lovely Guest Star for a future Jingle Belles prompt.

Now onto some Jolly Santa creations:

Stef says, "These fun little Santas were cut from a piece of Pink Paislee Father Christmas Designer paper. I thought the sentiment was perfect since each one looked like he was having a joyous good time ... and I had enough Santas left from the 6" square of paper to make several more Santa designs."

Lauren says, "this adorable echo park santa journaling tag was leftover from my november pixie dust paperie kit, and i honestly wasn't sure he was big enough to build a whole card around... but it was too cute not to try! i popped him into an ancient making memories frame, added stickers, rub-ons & flowers, and matted the whole thing a couple of times and whaddaya know? i've got a full-sized card! that seems pretty lucky... and rather jolly... to me!"

Now it's time to see what you will do! Dust off your thinking caps and your Santa hats and give us your jolliest cards that feature Father Christmas, Saint Nick, Sinterklaas, Pere Noel, or good old Santa Claus! As always, Inlinkz will remain open until 6pm (EST) next Wednesday, May 18th; the code for uploading to SCS or Flickr is JB20.

Please link the SPECIFIC BLOG POST which contains your card and NOT YOUR WHOLE BLOG! Thanks!
