Dear Santa . . . I really CAN explain!

Hehehe!! I just love that, don't you? It seems as though I spent my childhood "explaining" to "Santa"!! OK . . . so here I am, jumping in to full Christmas mode!! And today I have a fun new Sugar Nellie DT project to share with you! And finally . . . THIS one actually IS a Christmas Card!!
This cutie patootie is a Suzanne Woolcott stamp from 2009 called "Little Miss Attitude." This isn't exactly a Christmas stamp . . . but with this sentiment, I think it totally works!! hehe! And, OH NO! I just checked and, while this stamp can normally be found HERE at Funky Kits, it's currently out of stock. (Imagine my sad face here!) No worries, though, there are plenty of fabulous rubber stamps and digi images to choose from while you're waiting for "Little Miss Attitude" to get re-stocked!! Here's a sort of "side" view . . .
I just noticed . . . those little heart hair "bobs" look a bit like DEVIL HORNS! LOL! That totally cracks me up . . . I guess I should have colored them BLUE instead of red! hehehe!
My card "recipe" . . .

A peek at the inside . . .
And, of course . . . 
And, there ya have it . . . a cute (if I do say so myself) and rather non-traditional Sugar Nellie Christmas Card! As always, thanks so much for stopping by!! Hugs . . .

Totally cute with your little Gorjuss Girl! I heard they will not be sold anymore...which would be really sad, as I love them a lot!! But I bought myself some...or more ..;)..teehee lately, when I heard the rumours....
I love the blue colour combined with red and green!!! Looks so fresh and beautiful!

Simply fabulous Mrs Sugarbuns (and the card ain't bad either!)

I love this stamp and used it last year to make my Dads Fathers day card, and the cheeky man said it did remind him of me when I was younger (a lot younger!)

Perfect sentiment...I'm quite sure you STILL have a lot of explaining to do!

Big hugs from me

(and I'll put in a good for you next time I speak to Santa)

Hi Pat,
You have used one of my favourite images on your card!!
I get such a kick out of her.
She certainly works for Chritmas, especially with your sentiment! LOL
Beautiful work ❤
Your NitWit papers printed wonderfully. I hope mine will to now that I have bought a new printer 😊
Love, Candy
