Santa is Here!




CCEE50
This will be the last challenge for the year at CCEE Stampers. We will return Jan. 3, 2013. Yikes, another year gone by. How fast they go! Don't you agree?

The hostess this week is Frances Byrne and she wants to see a Santa on your card or project. I got out a retired Santa from Stampin'Up! I ordered it a long time ago from Ebay and there was no name on the set. If anyone knows the name, I would love to have it.

I wanted to make my card look vintage so I colored his robe with a Y28 Lionet Gold Copic and did some distressing/tearing on my papers. The designer papers all coordinate and are from My Mind's Eye/Lost and Found Christmas pad. The base and ink are Stampin'Up! Night of Navy. I didn't need a sentiment as it is already on the paper. Oh, and the holly is a Martha Stewart punch called Holly.

Hope you'll join us for the challenge this week and hope to see you return after the new year. Have a
joyful Christmas season.

It's hard to find a good Santa image, but this one's a real cutie, lovin your gold theme too.
I took my nephew and niece out this morning to a Christmas play for kids and they had the most rubbish looking Santa I've ever seen! Even my nephew said that Santa looked a "bit funny"!!
