QKR Stampede Challenge #223 - Santa

Can you believe it's the Friday before Christmas?!?!  I believe I'm ready...excited to have my kids and grandpups here!!  Our challenge this week at QKR Stampede is "Santa".  I chose Eureka Stamps image #7501 Santa on Skates.  I colored him with copics, a mixture of fun flock/flower soft on the fur, heat puff paint for his hair and beard, and cut out with SB large circle die.  I thought he would be perfect for a shaker card, so I used the cover from a roll of tape for the shaker part, SB large circle dies for the frame around the shaker, added snowflake, stars, disco fine and jumbo glitter.  Green and plaid cs from Recollections Christmas pack, white glitter from The Paper Studio Christmas pad, and ribbon from The Paper Studio.  Red snowflakes from Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and the "icicles"  is the goo punch from Martha Stewart.  Layout is for Stella Says Sketch blast from the past.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see the SANTA cards my DT sisters have made and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!

  11. Lovely creation, such a fun santa image and love the traditional papers. Sorry to be so late with comment but our lives have become very stressful over the last 7 weeks (with my BIL suffering a heart attack that has created so many health issues) and this will continue being that way for the next 6 months or more. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafting from the Heart and we hope to see you again soon.
    Hugs, Sandy
