ABC Christmas Challenge ,,, 'S' is for ,,,,,SANTA !!

Thanks to everyone who joined in with our Rudolph challenge ,,, they were all fantastic ,, some cute and some stylish and stunning !! I hope you all join us in the new theme for the next fortnight ,,,,

Before moving on to the challenge I just want to say a sad farewell to our teamie Cathy :-( Cathy has decided to step down from the ABC Christmas Challenge and move on to patures new :-) Good Luck Cathy xx we will miss you on the team ,, but I am still with you on others so it's not goodbye :-)

So ,, the challenge Squirrel is the hostess and she chose ,,,,the man himself ,,,, SANTA !! with the optional extra of NO RED :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a lovely $15 shopping spree to her fantastic store !! Heidi will pay shipping costs too !!



I used a lovely Whiff of Joy Santa with Gifts image that was a stamped image from Cathy :-)I coloured him with copics and couldn't resist a few dabs of dark pink ,, !! :-) The papers are Papermania and blue coredinations. I used a Martha Stewart around the page snowflake punch. I used star dust stickles, fine glitter and a few gems here and there for sparkle. The snowflake was made using a spellbinders die, all the edges were coloured with Vintage Photo distress ink.



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see ,,, so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge
to see them :-)

Challenges :-

Whiff of Joy ,,,,,, Layers

Crafty Calendar ,,, Blue with option of flowers ,, I have snowflakes instead ;-)

Charisma Cardz ,,,,, inspired by a song ,,, Santa Claus is Coming to Town !!

I have a blog candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to see it :-)

wow Lols, I would never have thought to colour Santa a different colour but he looks fab. Saying that the Santa who sits on my lilac trimmed Xmas tree is in Purple with glitter I should really broaden my ideas don't you think. Love that punch and think I may have to go shopping again :)
take care
Hugs Kate xx
