The jolly man ceased to exist after 6th grade. She overheard a conversation at school amongst two students that Santa was not real. It was taken much better than I anticipated. She asked me calmly and I verified it. No tears or cries of woe. After a few seconds of letting it sink it, she then asked me, "will you still get me presents if I know?" Oh joy! I completely lost it and had to laugh out loud.
Now for my card.
A fun card with vintage inspiration. I used a little ink to distress the edges and all My Mind's Eye papers for this card. I am trying to use this entire pack for this season. I am almost there. I am thinking of showcasing everything I made at once the last piece is used. I cut a Wilton doily in half for a little texture and color. I also stitched to attach the red banner to the green panel. I used a CTMH stamp (Noel) with a brown ink in the lower right corner. The large button finishes it off. Thanks for peeking at my Santa card! Supplies listed below.
