Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - I'm Late!

I'm late, I'm late... for a very important date!  I feel like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland and yes, I am late!  My Christmas at Sweet Stampin' post was supposed to be May 14 and I'd like to blame it on Blogger's scheduling but no... it's my own poor memory at fault here.  I thought it was on the 20th and I had lots of time so was mortified to see the post but no card from me.  Yikes!
Anyway, it's onward and forward... the theme for this challenge is Santa's Coming so I thought I'd use one of those fabulous Purple Onion stamps and this sad little tree is one from the Merriness set.  The sentiment is also Purple Onion and from the Mini Holiday Sentiments.  I love those stamps... deeply etched red rubber and they stamp crisp and clear every single time.
So... although I was late posting my card, how's this for being early getting some Christmas cards done?  Make sure you head on over to enter the challenge and check out what my DT mates created.
Our sponsor this month is Iva Nova Chest who is generously giving a lovely prize of an assortment of Christmas themed charms.

Stamps - Purple Onion's Merriness & Mini Holiday Sentiments
Embossing Folder - Sizzix Dots
Misc Enbellishments- Frantage (you know I love that stuff!), bells, jute and gems are from my stash
Christmas Stampin - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Running late but looking great! Teeny little stamps can be hard to use on a decent sized card but you really nailed it here and combo of embossed background and Frantage is just awesome :-)
Big hugs, Kat x
