I made my own brad today!

I am a lucky girl.  I have the new iTop brad maker and I couldn't wait to make brads!  And with the new adorable Whiff of Joy santa's I knew exactly what kind of brad to make. 
The background paper in this card has little bears and dolls throughout it. 
So I made a couple of cards and with the scraps I made some brads.

Isn't Santa CUTE!! Whiff of Joy have 5 new Santa images, this one is called "Santa reading list" and there's "Santa baking", "Santa with snack", "Santa with gifts" and "Quiet Santa".
Here's a close up of the brad I made.

If you want to know exatly how I made a brad with the iTop here's a tutorial,click on the image and save it or print it out.

Stop by Whiff of Joy to see the new winter releases and their gallery full of gorgeous cards.
