Jolly St. Nicholas

My Christmas holiday has begun!  I'm off tomorrow!  And the best thing is that Lauren and Paul arrive tomorrow, too!   The lighting was a bit of a problem when I photographed these two cards.  Some days I just can't seem to get it right!  Hard to see the pretty glitter on the letters here.   Oh, well...   Love this Jolly St. Nick postcard - it's just the way I picture Santa in his workshop. 

When Lauren was little there was a wonderful Santa at one of the malls here in OKC and he dressed a lot like the one pictured here - not in the traditional red suit.  His beard was even real! 
Certainly looking forward to tomorrow.  Do you have family coming in or are you going to visit?  

 Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!


  1. Hi Lori,
    Such darling cards! I can imagine how the glitter makes them sparkle. I remember a Santa that dressed alot like that too. I thought he was the cutest Santa I ever did see. I have a couple of pics of him with granddaughters. Enjoy Christmas with your family. My youngest daughter arrived from AZ Tues. night. My girls and I spent the day making candy yesterday.

  2. Adorable! Love the workshop card, it needs to be framed. Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas!

  3. I love your cards. These are so beautiful for Christmas.
    Merry Christmas!!

  4. so sweet, love that Santa! There was a wood carver in TN that looked like Santa, this reminds me of him. :D

  5. My daughter comes home tomorrow! The best part of Christmas is having the girls at home. Enjoy the holiday Lori! Love your Santa cards, Marilyn

  9. Yes, he was the best Santa ever! Our grocery store had a VERY pathetic Santa this year!

    Lighting can be such a problem. Our house is so dark, especially when the days get shorter!
