Crafts 4 Eternity - Santa!!

Hurrah!! It's nearly the weekend. Thank Goodness! Does everyone else live for the weekend like me. I just can't wait till I win the lottery. I'm sure it must be any week now!! In the meantime I'll have to confine my crafting to evenings & weekends! This is my card for weeks challenge at Crafts4 Eternity, where we want you to use Michele's fab sketch & include an image of Santa.

This is my favourite Santa stamp from Rubber Stampede. For me he encapsulates perfectly my idea of Father Christmas. A bit like Richard Attenborough in 'Miracle on 34th Street'. He is stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson & embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle. The snowfalkes are a mix a Creatables Die, & Martha Stewart &Woodware punches with adhesive pearls & crystals. The papers are Papermania, 'A Silent Night'.

You can see a little better here the twinkle & sparkle of the embossing powder. This weeks challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar is 'Snowflakes'. At Cute Card Thursday, 'Anything Goes'. So I would also like to enter these cards at these challenges.

I hope you will now pop over to the C4E blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow D-Teamies.

Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Oh GREAT! Now you're making me wish I had bought that Papermania pad!!! This is soooo pretty and elegant looking. I agree he is the perfect Father Christmas look!
I'm feeling a little better today, so I will email you this afternoon!!!
Hugs, Dena
