That vintage car stamp was a BARGAIN, and you've made an awesome masculine card with it. SUPER dancing Santa Christmas card too . .. very jolly. The Father Christmas card (1st one the page) is a classic. Not surprised your sales have been going so well!

Happy Friday!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Two super cards Kathy. I love the Santa and the way you have coloured him and matted and layered it, the white dots look great on the edges of the red mats too, and then the great wooden stamp which you got for a couple of pounds, wow, a lucky find, and a wonderful masculine card, and love the blue, also the grey chevrons which work really well, and both been sold! x
