One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday ~ SANTA # 81

Edited to Add, sorry folks, just went to link up and the collection is closed!

I am just coming in under the wire on this has been a crazy couple of weeks.  We lost two beautiful, faith filled, loving women from pancreatic cancer this week.  One was 72, but the other was 52!  I have been making sympathy cards like crazy and finishing up two prayer shawls to give to the sad.  This week is the funeral, so it will be even sadder to say good-bye.

On a happier note...I inked up this cute Santa from Tremendous Treats:  Christmas and decided to add him to the die cut from PTI and stamped a few of the houses from Holiday Home.  I can just see this Santa bouncing from one chimney top to another can't you?
Thanks for taking a look!
And if you want to play along, go HERE to Always Playing with Paper and ink up your Santa card!!
