Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 229

I am really gearing up my Christmas Card making now. Every challenge is going to be Christmas. I can hardly believe next week is Thanksgiving so times a tickin'. This is the season for the paper crafter. We live for the holidays because we send so many cards at this time of year. I used to make one design of card but now I have a tendency to make a variety of them. It's fun and there are so many possibilities.
This card features Mrs. Claus. She is very easy to make and I dressed her up with her red pearl earrings, sending a cheery sentiment from the stamp set Seasonal Sentiments. If you are interested in how to Mrs. Claus see below.  
Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
