ABC Christmas Challenge - S is for...

This week at the ABC Christmas Challenge, it's Carissa's turn to host...and the theme is:

'S is for Santa Claus is Comin' to Town'

We have two amazing sponsors for this challenge:

 The fabulous Bugaboo Stamps prize is:


Our very own Lacey, with her awesome Stamp & Create store!

 The prize is a whopping $25 gift certificate - wowee!

I've used an adorable Santa image from Bugaboo Stamps...he's called 'Santa Stocking Present'...I coloured him using watercolour pencils. On the background, I embossed the kraft card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder...and used a Papermania snowflake border folder on the red piece. The sentiment stamp, heat embossed in white, is from Lili of the Valley, and the gingham ribbon is from Hobbycraft. I distressed all of the edges using my distressing tool...and doodled a border around the image using a black gel pen.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

PS - I have Christmas themed candy on offer at the moment...but you'll need to be quick, as it closes here to find out more.
