Santa Claus is coming to town



Hello and I hope this week will be a good one for you. I can hardly believe that it is time for another challenge at 


and this challenge marks our twelfth, we have been creating cute Christmasness or Christmas cuteness (!!) for a whole year...how did that happen?

Anyway it won't be long until the fella in red will be visiting so this time the theme is

Santa Claus is coming to town.ğŸŽ… 

Now, I tend to steer clear of Father Christmas images and stamps as I find some of them a bit creepy looking. However, I found a lovely decoupage sheet from Craft Creations that I just had to use and then remembered that I had bought a cute Father Christmas stamp and die from Swedish House Crafts, so I have two cards to share!!



I wanted the stamp to tell the story on this one so kept it quite plain. The sweet paper is from Doodlebug Designs Milk and Cookies...so cute.


I love the idea of Father Christmas ice skating!! The Crafters Companion embossing folder made for a perfect back drop and the sentiment is, of course, a much used Christmas stamp set from  LOTV.

It would be lovely to see you and your Santa creations so hope you will have a minute or two to join us.

Well, that's me for today but I will be back later in the week, so see you then xx

Some challenges
