Santa - But Not As You Know Him !!!


Firstly i would just like to thank the ladies at Winter Wonderland who picked me to be in their Top 3 for For Me There Will Only Ever Be 1 Snowman !! - wow it was an honour, thanks.

I did also start this card yesterday at The Crafty Devils, but unfortunately i couldn't finish it as i managed to pour water over my base card - silly me !!!

Right todays title well the lovely Squirrel got me into a little tizz - when she decided the new
ABC Christmas Challenge  should be S for Santa - but no 'Red' - well even my 3 year old thinks Santa only wears Red - then i had a think about it and came up up with Non Red, Luckily for me !!

 Simon Say's Stamp and Show are combining this weeks Challenge 'Holiday Fun' with Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Bah Humbug - where Challenge No: 35 is 'Using Your Favourite Medium' - mine is Penny Black stamps and Die Cutting using my Nesties
