Christmas Cards All Year Round - August Challenge - Kids , Christmas Stampin all Year Long - "Anything Goes" and Just Keep on Creating - Christmas is Just Around the Corner

Hello friends!  Yesterday I shared a card with you that I made using this great  new Santa and kids stamp set called Wondrous Wishes.  That card had muted colors and only part of it was colored in to spotlight Santa.  This card is fully and brightly colored.   Doesn't this image just make you smile?  I love the little girl on Santa's lap with her list - too cute!  I loved Santa as a kid - couldn't wait to take my long list to share with him.  My daughter absolutely refused to get close to Santa - she preferred to worship him from afar.  She always had a list though and said that since he could see the little kids all the time then he already knew what was on her list even if she didn't go talk to him. 

I'm entering this in two fun Christmas card challenges today - Christmas Cards All Year Round - August challenge which is to make a card suitable for a child, and Christmas Stampin' All Year Long #23 - "Anything Goes".  I think any kid (even a pre-teen or young adult) would love to get this card with its bright colors and fun image.  I am also entering this in a challenge that I stumbled upon  called Just Keep on Creating - Christmas is Just Around the Corner challenge.  Here's the inside (notice the DSP inside too - I'm giddy with pleasure that I finished the inside right away and with matching DSP):
The finished card size is 5 1/4" square and will fit just perfectly in a square envelope.  I hope you enjoyed the two different ways in which I colored this stamp.  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today - I'm sure glad that you did! Til next time - Hugs!
Supplies (all from Stampin Up! except as noted):  Cardstock - Garden Green, Glimmer Paper - red, Real Red and Solar White (Neenah). Stamp and sentiments - Wondrous Wishes (NEW) colored with copic markers.  DSP - Frostwood Lodge (retired).  Glimmer Brads - brights.
