ABC Christmas Challenge S is for...

....Santa!
Afternoon Blogland! I've been trapped indoors this weekend. The junior great North Run goes right past my flat, there's barriers put up & it's hard to get out & then you have to start climbing....well not good when your a shop-a-holic like me....plus this year it was all on the BBC so don't think the British public wanna watch me climb over barriers LOL

As I've been stuck in......(which has been a good thing as the weather is naff) I've been making cards, I thought I'd get a start on my Christmas cards. Some I can't show you just yet..... but the card I'm sharing with you now is for the ABC Christmas Challenge & this weeks theme is S for Santa but no red allowed! Now this was hard for me as I love Christmas & the tradition of it all Santa should be red.....but I must admit he does look good in blue!!!

For my card I used card stock from the paper mill, paper is Forever Friends, Magnolia Santa colored with Pro Markers, cut with Nesabilities label 1 die, Diamond stickles round the edge & Dovecraft "Santa was here" stamp, the stars are a punch that I have in my stash.....no idea where it came from sorry!!!

I bought a Wire in the Blood Boxset from here a few weeks back 14 discs - OMG I'm in my element.....I love Robson Green in this, it plays it so well so it's on repeat........so I'm watching Dr Tony Hill & Christmas crafting all day long........might be back later with more creations! x x x
