Catching Up with 'Besties'

Happy Sunday Everyone!
It's almost time for the BIG GAME between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns!  BUT before heading to the TV, I wanted to share with you a creation I made for the 'Besties' Challenges.
I've had this image colored since before Christmas ... just didn't have the time to put it into card form.  BUT since I see there is still time to participate in two of the Besties Challenges ... today's the day!


Isn't he just the most handsome Santa!?!
And here I go again ... using up scraps!  Yep, it's nearly time to put all my Christmas stamps, papers & embellishments away for another year so I'm going through scraps that are still hanging around on my craft table.
I don't remember where the sentiment panel came from (sorry!) but it matched in with my paper which is BoBunny 'Father Christmas', so I used it.  The piece of green organza ribbon was a scrap piece left over from Hershey Bar pouches and I must admit I had to go 'In Search Of' for the jingle bells ... they look so cute!

Qualifying Challenges are:
My Besties UK Challenge - Jingle Bells
CMC Copic Challenge #83 - Holiday Theme
Di's Digi Challenge - Anything Christmas
Keep It Simple - Anything Goes

Well it's time for the big game ... catch you later!
GO STEELERS!

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .

Recipe:
Image:  My Besties 'Vintage Santa'
Papers:  Bo Bunny dp, black cs, white cs, 
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, White Liquid Applique, Flower Factory green organza ribbon, White Gelly Roll Pen (faux stitching), jingle bells from stash
