Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa meets a couple of challenges.

So happy to have learned that this card was picked for the Fab Faves.  Yay!

I enjoy the Fab Friday Challenges and am glad I managed to get a card together before this one was over.  The sketch is perfect for one of the new stamp sets that I just received in yesterday's order.



Another challenge that I enjoy and for which my planned card would be great is the Stampin' Royalty one which calls for Glitter.  I planned to make a very clean and simple card but I also planned to use a fair bit of glitter.  Perfect!

The stamp set, Santa Stache, that I used for this sketch is from the new Holiday Catalogue that will premiere on September 1st.  It's perfect for some fun and also for the Blendabilities.  I chose to use the Santa image for the large shape in the sketch and then a word bubble containing the "ho! ho! ho!" from the Hostess Good Greetings set for the medium shape and, finally, a star cut from Silver Glimmer Paper for the smallest of the shapes.  

I used Cherry Cobbler for my base cardstock and stamped or adhered all the shapes onto a layer of Whisper White.  I kept it clean and simple and love the final result.  I hope that you do as well.

    1. Thanks, Amanda. I can see myself using that "stached" Santa quite a bit this season. He's purely fun.
