Ho Ho Ho!

I'm back in Christmas card mode...and have combined two challenges on this card: Winter Wonderland's 'Santa Claus in Coming to Town' challenge; and Cupcake Craft's 'Christmas Card' theme. I don't have a Santa stamp (something I'm sure I'll remedy soon! lol), but found this cute Dustin Pike freebie digi stamp...which I watercoloured, then decoupaged a couple of extra layers (his moustache, nose and boots). I embossed some plain white card with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder for the background, and added a simple sentiment cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.
