Happy cheerful Santa

I realised the other day that there are now only a few weeks left till Christmas and thought I ought to start marking some Christmas cards especially since my mum has asked for some too. I spent my pennies at Funky kits and got this fab happy Santa which I thought would be great for my 7 year old nephew, I think he is just so cute though I could do with Santa sending me some fine Promarker nibs before Christmas so I can colour the details a bit easier, but we can't have everything we wish for can we.


I coloured him with Promarkers and decided on a white on white card. The base card I left plain but mounted Santa , after a little fancy cutting on some copy paper I embossed with snowflakes and then added a small piece of snowflake ribbon I found in my Christmas box(wish I knew where it was from and I'd get some more). I then added white satin ribbon and a bow. I mounted this on silver mirri-card and added a tag I won a couple of years ago, think they might be craftworks but not sure.A bit of sparkly glitter pen to highlight and done.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
The Sugar Bowl-layout theme ice and snow
cards and more - snowflakes
city crafter challenge-Santa is coming to town
Craft your passion-tis the season
Pollycraft-chritmas fun
Stampsrus-emboss it

And Santa is looking mighty fine hun! Love that you left a lot of white, it really makes Santa stand out beautifully. Know what you mean about the detail on this one, I coloured him with paintbrushes and that was a fiddle, lol! Hugs Sxx
