Santa coming through!

Watch out....move it...Santa is coming through peeps!  And he has got some BIG deliveries to make too!

OK, can I start this post by telling you I just bought my hubby the absolute best Christmas gift EVAH!!!!  I really want to tell you what it is, and I probably could because I don't think he reads this BUT I don't want him to know at all, or find out in any way shape or form, so I can't spill the beans.  I can give you a few hints though...it is something that would be awesome in a "man cave" (which we don't have but maybe one day), perfect for just about any guy, goes great with sports on TV and is big!  Do you know what it is?  Any guesses?  I love finding that *just right* gift for someone, it is so super exciting for me!  I just can't wait to see the look on his face!

OK, when I laid my eyes on this Sweet Stamp Shop set it was a must have.  I lurve to color and I thought it would make perfect set for mass producing cards.  Of course I haven't started yet.... and thinking about coloring and cutting 50+ cards, maybe that isn't the best for mass producing at this point...but we'll see. I'll likely have several different cards in small batches, which is more fun for me than just one type anyway. Meanwhile, this card is perfect to go with my excitement today, because of the rushed, special delivery element!  Can you imagine counting down the holidays and the delivery man making it just in time for the special event?!   I can!  So....I am entering this card into The Pink Elephant Challenge # 228- Winter and the Curtain Call Challenge Christmas Countdown.

Before you go, the Question of the Day is- based on the hints I provided, what do you think I am getting my husband?  I am confident he won't read the comments so it's all good.  Whomever is the first to get it right (without already knowing), I will send you a small stamping/crafting goodie from my stash. :)

Your card is stinky cute, Katie!! I love the composition and festive colors! As for the gift for hubby, I have NO idea. It seems to me that it's a GAME/TV that he can play/watch?

How adorable is your special delivery van, loaded with gifts! Super cute!! Your husband's gift...hmmm...I'm thinking a comfy chair, maybe a swanky recliner of some nature. Whatever it is, I know he'll love it!! Great question!
