SO SANTA beachy holiday card created with Stampin' Up! products

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you!  Is it cold and snowing where you are?  Here in Northern California it is a bit chilly with some rain, but the sun is out shining today.  This card makes me wish I was sitting on the beaches of Hawaii with a Mai Tai in my hands. I actually did that a few years ago and it was SO much fun but odd to be in t-shirts, capris, and flip flops at the end of December.  Here is a fun card to help you celebrate the season with your loved ones.  Enjoy and happy stamping!
