Merry Christmas from Santa

Hello, everyone!  I was out all day, and when I got back I wanted to whip up a quick card, so here's what I came up with!

Just a quick CAS design using an image from a recycled card from last year. Too cute to throw away! The sentiment is an old wood-mounted stamp from Plaid/All Night Media, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  I added a snowflake and red gem from my stash.  

My little elf Eli is still missing Santa! Just look at how he's cuddled up to the card LOL.  That's okay, Eli, you'll see Santa in another 12 days!  Eek, did I say 12 days? Still so much to do! Linking up to DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party.
