Happy HOT Holidays

Working my way through the challenge of getting the cards done for the deployment gift and here is the holiday card. Since he'll be somewhere in the desert I figured a sandy, hot, crazy Santa would fit the bill. I didn't want to go overly mushy or sentimental because I didn't want the card to make the separation at that time of year even worse. So, a bright sunny day with a little sand and Santa.

The stamps are all Stampin Up. Santa and the tree are from a retired set. So glad I've never parted with him. To finish off the affect there is a strip of sandpaper.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Out of this world (I don't think we'll be seeing Santa in his bathing suit any time soon!)

Thanks for looking!
