Golden Santa !!!


When i bought this Santa - it was a case of i need to have a Santa in my stamp collection, but he is now turning out to be a very versatile Santa - as this is the 3rd time i've coloured him in, in different colours and everytime he looks good.

I must be getting 'Tight' in my old age (not long ago i would have just gone out and bought a gold charm, but no not now !!!) as i wanted a gold charm for this card as the background papers are gold, so i found 6 Santas i had bought from 'The Works' for 99p (so i thought if it's a disaster, i've not lost much), i versamarked 1 of them then covered it in my (not used in a very long time) gold embossing powder and heated it - yipee i now have a gold and not silver charm.

The Card and the Challenges I'm entering are :

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where the lovely Debby has come up with a fabby sketch for Challenge No: 123
