Vintage Santa Ornament

Hi friends.  Beautiful Indian Summer here near Buffalo, New York!  We hit 73 degrees on Wednesday, and all this week until Friday we are supposed to get into the 60's each day.  Why we have had snow by now in some recent years!!!

I have had this wonderful Santa colored up since I purchased the digi at Power Poppy,
by Artist Marcell Hawley.  I have a vintage Santa Ornament very similar to this only
he clips on the tree with a metal clip.  He is very old and each year we carefully place him
high up so nothing bumps him.  He has lost his shine, but we still covet this treasure.

I kept the card really simple so that this wonderful Santa could be the main
focal point.

Sue, this is just amazingly beautiful. I love your coloring on this Santa and I like that you let him be the main focal point although I could not help but to notice that very pretty paper backing him up. It was 57° this afternoon but suppose to go up again tomorrow. So it sounds like we are having the same weather. Waiting to see how long we can stay this lucky. Enjoy the evening.

This is gorgeous Sue. Love that the image is the main focus of your card! I too have an ornament like this that is very Mom brought it over when we immigrated from Ireland almost 60 years ago! We also have a little plastic Santa & sleigh that Bill's family always had on their Christmas tree when he was young. Special memories!
Hugs, Renee
