DTBST#122 - Christmas/Holiday with a sentiment (Santa's Helper)

Hello and welcome to another DTBST Challenge!  The last Thursday of every month we are asked to make a Christmas/Holiday project and this week we are to also add a sentiment.

If you are a follower of my blog, then you know that once a month I do a Fun Christmas Blog Hop showing 2 Christmas cards (yesterday's post, check it out), so this month I will be completing 3 Christmas cards to add to my collection thanks to the SSD challenge this week.  Man I am just knocking so many cards off my Christmas card list for this year!  Whoo Hoo, Yeah Me!  So far in total, counting this post I have 7 cards completed for Christmas, how many do you have made so far?

Here is my DTBST Christmas/Holiday card with Sentiment for you this week....
