Christmas Card Club #19: Something Beginning with "S"

Oh well, the Christmas Card Club girls are at it again! This fortnight's party is being hosted by the super talented multitasking card-making diva - Hazel Harris. Hazel has picked a fun theme for us - "Something Starting With S". So many options: Santa, Sack (of presents), Snowflakes, Snowy Scene, Sleigh, Stickles, Stitching .... when in doubt, use everything! It is Christmas after all!



Santa and his sleigh are from CB's new Santa Baby set. I created the snow dunes(?) with
torn paper and Distress inks. The "trees" in the background are from CB's Turtle Doves

Santa Baby! I coloured him with Graph'It markers. I also stamped
snowflakes in the background and added bling. Along the snow dunes
I added some Stardust Stickles for added shine.

The greeting is from CB's Warm Christmas Greeting set, stamped with Versamark Majestic Blue

Santa is dragging his heavy sleigh over to these challenges:

Beijinhos!
