Here Comes Santa Claus!

I had some time on Sunday to play in the VSN challenges over on Splitcoaststampers. What fun challenges they had! I am so glad I played as I also got 3 more Christmas cards done !

I used my newest  A Creative Need imageSanta’s Hat and Sleigh Bell”  and colored it with copics. I added some fun flock to the fur and also the snowflake embellishment; I think it looks so festive!  The background is embossed with snowflakes using the cuttlebug.  The sentiment is from Flourishes “Sweets of the Season”.

Here’s a close up of the glitter and flocking:

If you missed it, I’m having a little contest giveaway:  A FREEBIE OF ANY ONE IMAGE FROM MY SHOP if I choose your idea for my next image!  I’ll give you the image that you had the idea for too! SO that’s 2 images for free! All you have to do is leave me your idea of any image you would like to see me draw up next!  I love to hear your ideas and your input is so appreciated!  

I already have these fun ideas that came in…

Claire Newcombe said… I wondered if  it would be possible to create a cosy fireplace image with a log pile, or maybe a child toboggan and a pair of boots, or even Santas sleigh. 

Audrey Goodwin suggested: We need something for naughty people. Coal and switches, a little humor.

Now don’t be shy, let’s hear your ideas too!

    What pretty images. Love the shine on that bell. Yes, a very pretty card made totally by you! If only I could draw!!!!

    Okay, so if I could draw – I would draw a couple of kids on their bellies under the tree trying to PEEK in the edges of the packaging to see what they are getting! All kinds of funny sentiments could be made to go with that.

    I may not always comment when I’m on the fly – but I always like what I see!

    Happy Fall Deena!
