Here Comes Santa

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!

Today I spotted a sketch challenge that I thought I'd like to do and share with you all.  It's a Christmas sketch so that will also help me continue to get my holiday cards done before the last minute.

What do you think?
 The sketch challenge I'm referring to is the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and here's their sketch:


I've used scraps of holiday designer paper from my stash for my stockings which is VERY old Spellbinder die set and a touch of Red Stickles for holiday sparkle.

My sentiment panel is a combination of two die sets:

Sue Wilson 'Stitched Flags'

Sue Wilson Designs - Frames & Tags - Stitched Flags

Sue Wilson 'Here Comes Santa'

Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Industrial Chic Collection - Here Comes Santa

Other challenges to share in:
Crafty Hazelnut Challenge #506 - Christmas - use patterned paper
My Time to Craft Challenge #440 - Embossing (wet or dry)
Time Out Challenge #169 - Seasons (Christmas)

  As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
