Classic Santa

Awwwwwwwww... dontcha just love an wonderful classic Santa???  I got this great stamp from a prize package I won -- sponsor,  Let me tell you something... that is one generous  sponsor!!  The prize was a $50 certificate to (extra great on its own).  Then when my 'order' arrived, there was probably another $50+ of extras I wasn't expecting.  It was just like Christmas!!  This stamp, Jolly Santa by Stamps Happen, was one I selected with my certificate.  Also shipped to me were 3-4 other stamps, a complete Christmas card-making set (papers (red used as my 'matting' color), embellies, etc) and other items!!!  Fun... fun... fun!!!

I colored Santa with classic Christmas red and green.  I went with a white snow embossed background trying to evoke the vision of a white Christmas.  I bought this beautiful ribbon on eBay a few months ago and I just LOVE it.  There are even more beautiful colors than you can see here.  Can't wait to use it again.  : )  Let's see... what else?  The sentiment is computer generated and I glittered up Santa's cap brim.

Now... the challenges...
1.  Cute Card Thursday - Glitter Me Silly
2.  Charisma Cardz - Merry and Bright
3.  Creative Inspirations - New or Neglected -- used my brand new stamp.
4.  Copic Colour Challenge" - use emerald green (g05), lipstick red (r29) and acid yellow (y08).  I did skip the acid yellow -- not really a 'classic' color.  : )
5.  Cupcake Craft Challenge - Snow Much Fun
6.  Crafty Creations - Snow
7.  Allsorts Challenge - Bring out your Bling
8.  Pals Paper Arts - Christmas Cheer
