Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: If Santa had son what do you think he would name him?
A: Me? I'm going to guess Sam Claus :)

 I created a pretty simple card to show off this beautiful Santa hat from the Magic of the Season Set.

This is one of my favorite sets from Polka Dot Orchard called Penguin Love! It has a bunch of cute sentiments and images. I used the CAS-Fridays Snowflake Panel die and popped this cutie right in the middle.
