Christmas Card Challenge Day 4

I'm really starting to crank the cards out now. This challenge has given me direction and I find I am easily making a bunch of cards at a time by focusing on some stamped images and a designer paper to go with them. In today's case I have used all Basic Grey paper and some of my favorite Christmas stamps by Art by Moonlight. I made this one a matchbook card. I used my favorite Santa stamp by Art by Moonlight and added a scalloped frame around him. The ribbon is by Deja Views -- it's velour! Just amazing.
The sentiment I added at the bottom is a $1 stamp from Michael's.

This stamp by Art by Moonlight requires looking very closely at the image in the oval frame. I used up my last scrap of paper lace here which I bought at the dollar store. I have not been able to find any more at the many dollar stores I've checked:(
The round joy is punched from a Christmas paper.

The image in the circle frame is a little light here, admittedly not the best photo. Also probably my least favorite of the three, but still very sendable. I created somewhat of a mini book to hold my image, adding two brads and red cord on the side. I also sneaked in another stamp by Art Impressions to create my holly border as well as sentiment stamps by Art By Moonlight and StampinUp.
I'm really making my way through my stamps,...but there's still lots more to come!!!!

Fabulous Xmas cards, I love the Santa it's one of my favourite images. I have it as an image on a CD but I didn't know you could get it as a stamp.

My favorite is the Santa on stripes. Great cards and I'm so sorry your shopping hasn't been as fruitful as usual. I may have to put that in my prayers - - May Louise find wonderful treasures when shopping SOON. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
