Vintage Santa

There's something about this stamp set that brings back the memories of Christmas and the great times I spent with my Grandparents! Grandpa really reminded me of Santa, you see. White hair, beard and the big belly were all natural!

Stamps are from The Angel Company. Santa is stamped in Memories black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder, and the same for the sentiment.

Paper is from TAC as well. This year I've seen this Santa pop up everywhere, specifically in designer paper form.

Every time I see this I'm reminded of the time my Grandpa got a bit tipsy on Egg Nog and became very jolly! He decided it be fun to embrace his likeness of Santa....I can still remember the big red bow that he stuck to the top of his head instead of a Santa hat. Ah, good times and ever better memories!
