Here Comes a Pink Santa Claus

Okay....here it is! This is the second item, added to Santa's bag, for my awesome November give-away. Remember in the post below this, I showed the sweet snow ball that would make a gorgeous tree ornament, a door hanger or even a kissing ball. Everybody needs a kissing ball hanging from some strategic spot during the holidays. Remember the song "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus underneath the kissing ball last night?". Okay so it wasn't in those exact words but you get the picture. :) This is a charming gift tag I crafted from the image of one of my antique postcards. This one was dated 1908 and has the faded and worn old Santa, dressed in pink, looking through the holly wreath. And the hanging ribbons are vintage pink rayon seam binding. It's a personal favorite of mine. I added white sugar snow glitter on the edges and oh so soft maribou feather trim on the bottom edge. The sentiment says simply: "Merry Christmas". It's a post card size tag and would be perfect on that gift for someone special.



You can leave a comment on any post during the month of November to be entered in this give-away and don't forget to vote for me in the Shabby Lane Shops boutique decorating contest. Just click on the cute Santa below to be magically transported to the voting booth. If you leave an anonymous comment don't forget to leave me an email so I can reach you, should you be the lucky winner of this fabulous give-away. And stay tuned because more will be added to this give-away as the month progresses. :) This is so much fun! Oh yeah, .... if you have already left a comment once it's okay to say "Hi" again. I love to hear from you. Have a super great weekend and I'll see you soon.

Found my way to your blog from Polka Dot Rose. Love the little gift tag but I have to agree...I probably couldn't bear to give it away!

I am so out of the loop! I had to go and check everything I've missed. I think I would make sure this tag was on a present from me to me!
I'm off to vote!

That's lovely, Lynn, just like everything else you make!! I'm sick and I think I have a temp and my back hurts really bad and I have a headache and I'm fairly certain winning this sweet old timey Santa would make me oh so much better!!

Nola @ the Alamo said...

I think that would make a beautiful ornament, too! Although we can never have too many kissing balls, either, can we? Either way, it is just adorable.

Broken China Treasures said...

You make such beautiful creations! Oh, and I voted for you, too!
I've been away too long ~ for some your blog freezes on my work computer (along with a few others) and I just have so much to do when I'm home I forget to check it. But, I'm done in Santa's workshop (for now) and thought I would come visit.

BTW, I don't know if you're still interested, but I finally have more business card holders ~ let me know and I'll let you have first pick before I list them in my Etsy shop!

Dana and Daisy said...

I thought Santa is always Pink. Is Santa not usually pink? lol!

Bucca said...

Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too said...

Howdee MH~
How is that chicken coop coming a long?

I have moved on from chicks...the little one I bought from you was enough to satisfy my chicken~owning desire...LOL

As usual, I am up to no good.....just opened my flea market blog on Friday...working out all the kinks. Michelle did my banner and she made me a new Etsy banner too.

Hope all is well..off to browse the boutique.
