52CCT - November Theme Challenge "Christmas Window"

Hello and happy weekend! 
We've had several cold days in a row here
which makes me want to just cuddle up and eat comfort food.
I'm planning to make a big batch of lasagna
this weekend to enjoy with my favorite wine.
I might even watch a movie and just completely "chill"
Ha haha - did you get my play on words?
Doesn't that sound heavenly?

So enough about about a
look at my DT card for the challenge
this week for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (52CCT).
52CCT November Theme Challenge is "Christmas Window"
and here's my card:

I kept the style clean with minimal embellishments so that 
the brick embossing would stand out behind this 
super cute Santa peeking through the window. 
I wonder...does he come through the window
when there is no chimney?  

I am entering this card in the following great challenges:
Stamping Sensations - November challenge - Simply Christmas
Crafty Catz Challenge #255 - Christmas is Coming
Christmas Cards All Year Round - November - No patterned paper
Alphabet Challenge Blog - T for Traditional Christmas
Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #121 - Anything Goes

Did you notice that we are having a DT call over 
at 52CCT?  We are looking for several Christmas 
card crafters to join the team.  
It's a great way to keep Christmas in your heart 
all year and have a nice stash of Christmas cards
to send out by November.

  1. Oh Danielle - this is brilliant! I love that Santa is peering in the window - it's a bold, jolly image and beautifully coloured. I really like the emboosed brick wall - great texture.

    BTW, the idea of lasagne, wine and a movie is just super!

  14. Such a fun card, love the cute santa looking through the window. Thank you for sharing at ATSM.

  15. We had the same idea with the brick embossing folder - only your Santa is looking in, and my little boy and his dog were looking out! :) The colors really pop against the white brick wall. Nicely done, Danielle!
    To answer your question: When our boys were little, we had a "Santa key" that we hung on the front doorknob on Christmas Eve so that Santa could let himself in the house.

  16. Such a wonderful Santa! He makes me happy just looking at him! Love the embossing - great idea Danielle. Hugs, Gill xx

  17. He is rather cute isn't he. I love the embossed wall, it looks so real. Thank you for joining us at CHNC Extra.
